"It's nothing dramatic," one insider told E! News. "There's no third party involved."

Another source said, "They were together for so long. It just ran its course."

There have been rumblings for a while that Hudgens wanted to take the relationship to the next level and at least live together, but Efron would have none of it. In fact, he even told reporters he wouldn't get married until he was 30 years old -- a smart move, but probably not what his longtime girlfriend wanted to hear.

"I'm not getting married until I'm 40. If ever. The thought never crossed my mind," Zac Efron told GQ in 2009."[Ok,] maybe not 40. Maybe not until I'm 30."

Hudgens, who turns 22 December 14, is in Hawaii wrapping Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Efron, 23, is filming The Lucky One in Louisiana.
