Mel B has been facing her fair share of drama this year. She released her autobiography Brutally Honest, but was forced to stay quiet about her most inmate moments with former lover Eddie Murphy due to a gag order released by the comedian’s camp. She is also caught up in an ugly custody battle with ex-husband Stephen Belafonte while simultaneously clearing up rehab rumors. Now, according to US Weekly, it appears that another aspect of Mel’s life has been exposed.
The Sun broke the news first, stating that 43-year-old Mel B and High School Musical star Zac Efron met on a dating app and began to exchange flirty messages. “He ended up driving over to her pad. They hit it off and spent a few enjoyable hours together,” an unnamed friend told The Sun. “It wasn’t exactly a meeting of the minds. Neither saw it as long-term, but there was chemistry there. Mel thought Zac had an amazing body.”
Efron is no stranger to using dating apps. “Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!” he told The Times two years ago. “They thought [my profile] was fake.” Efron has been linked to several gorgeous ladies over the years, including Vanessa Hudgens, Michelle Rodriguez, Sami Miró and Lily Collins.
