Zendaya recently sparked a stir among fans when she uploaded a photo of herself wearing a stunning ring. The photo fuelled speculation that she was engaged to her longtime boyfriend and Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star, Tom Holland. Zendaya, on the other hand, has come forward to clear the air and provide light on her relationship status.
Zendaya shot off engagement rumours in an Instagram Story video, saying, “I can’t post anything, you guys. You think that’s how I would drop the news?” Her light-hearted yet direct reaction intended to put to rest the circulating rumours.
Zendaya further stated that the ring in question was worn on her right hand rather than her left, implying that it was unrelated to any engagement. She joked, “I posted it for my hat, not for the ring on my right finger, you guys, seriously.” This explanation was intended to clear up any confusion about her relationship status.
Despite the engagement rumours, Zendaya and Tom Holland’s relationship continues to pique the interest of viewers. The couple has been dating for at least two years and has shown their love for each other in interviews and public appearances while keeping their relationship as quiet as possible.
In an interview with Elle, Zendaya said,” I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love. But also, I do have control over what I choose to share. It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist. You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”
Tom had the same train of thought. “Our relationship is something that we are incredibly protective of and we want to keep as sacred as possible,” the 27-year-old told The Hollywood Reporter. “We don’t think that we owe it to anyone, it’s our thing, and it has nothing to do with our careers.”
