Zendaya, the Emmy-winning actress, has put an end to the swirling rumours regarding her engagement to Tom Holland. The speculation reached a fever pitch when an Instagram selfie of the star donning a black Golden State Warriors hat and a pearl ring on her right hand set social media abuzz. However, Zendaya took to an Instagram story, which has since expired, to clarify the situation, stating that the rumours had left her feeling restricted in her social media posts.
In the story, she humorously addressed the engagement rumours, saying, “I posted it for my hat. Not for the ring on my right finger, you guys,” followed by a laugh. She further emphasized, “Seriously, you think that’s how I would drop the news? What?”
Zendaya and Tom Holland, both 27 years old, first made headlines when they were spotted sharing a kiss in public back in July 2021. Since then, the couple, affectionately known as “Tomdaya” by fans, has been seen together at various high-profile events, including red carpet appearances, basketball games, and most recently, Beyoncé’s Renaissance world tour.
As the talented actors continue to navigate their relationship in the spotlight, Zendaya has made it clear that she prefers not to leave her fans guessing when it comes to significant life announcements.
Before dispelling engagement rumours this week, Zendaya slammed social media fans last year for spreading a fake Instagram post made to look like a pregnancy announcement.
