– Rumors of a romantic relationship between Tom Holland and Zendaya started in July 2017, but they both denied it and insisted they were just friends.
– The rumors continued despite their denials, but they only confirmed their relationship publicly in July 2021 after being spotted kissing in a car.
– Although they are now more comfortable showing their relationship in public, Holland has said they will still be private about discussing it in interviews and only talk about it together when they’re ready.
In July 2017, rumors surfaced that Tom Holland and his “Spider-Man” co-star Zendaya were dating. However, the pair denied the speculation and claimed they were merely friends. Despite their efforts, reports continued to circulate that they were in a relationship and trying to keep it under wraps. These rumors were seemingly confirmed in a now-deleted Instagram comment made by Kiya Cole, the mother of Zendaya’s close friend Skai Jackson, in September 2018.
In August 2019, Zendaya began dating her “Euphoria” co-star Jacob Elordi, causing fans to question whether the rumors about her and Holland were true. However, her relationship with Elordi was short-lived and by July 2021, the dating rumors between Holland and Zendaya had resurfaced after they were spotted kissing in a car. Since then, the couple has been happily together, but they have made a conscious effort to maintain their privacy.
In an interview with GQ in November 2021, Holland admitted that their fame had left them with little control over their privacy, saying, “It’s not a conversation that I can have without her. I respect her too much… This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.” Despite their desire for privacy, fans have noticed Holland and Zendaya’s undeniable chemistry on and off the red carpet.
Recently, the couple has been becoming more comfortable showing off their love for each other. In March 2023, Zendaya was spotted wearing a ring with Holland’s initials on it, and the following month, they had a date night at Usher’s concert in Las Vegas. In May 2023, they also attended a basketball game together, further fueling speculation about the status of their relationship. While they continue to prioritize their privacy, fans can’t help but be excited about the possibility of seeing more of this Hollywood power couple in the future.
