Zendaya Literally Posted A Very Normal Selfie And People Started Asking If She Was Engaged To Tom Holland
When you're a celebrity, there are certain things that come with the territory that I, for one, would not want to deal with. Namely, being followed by paparazzi when you do literally anything and having everything you do watched by millions of people.
Honestly, I commend the celebrities who stay very active on social media because I kind of understand why a lot of them stay off it and/or keep their socials private.
Zendaya has always been a celeb who loves to engage with her fans online, and it often leads to some hilarious and iconic moments.

However, as she's gotten more famous, especially after the success of Euphoria and starring in the Spider-Manmovies. She's been very open when talking about how her level of fame is hard to deal with, especially when it comes to people wanting to know everything about her personal life, aka her relationship with Tom Holland.
Rumors are constantly spreading about Zendaya and Tom, and it happened again recently over something as small as a selfie Zendaya posted to her Instagram story.
A few minutes later, Zendaya went back to Instagram to call people out for wrongly assuming the photo had anything to do with her ring.
In the now-deleted Instagram story, Zendaya said, "I can't post anything, you guys! I posted it for my hat! Like?! Like, not for the ring on my right finger, you guys."
Then, she hilariously added, "You think that's how I'd drop the news?! WHAT?!"
What's wild is this isn't even the first time it's happened. In late 2021, Zendaya posted a selfie to her stories, with the caption, "It was time for a change," showcasing a new haircut, but people ran wild with engagement rumors because of the ring she had on.
Darnell Appling, Zendaya's assistant and friend, also went live on Instagram to say that she is not engaged, saying, "That woman is not engaged. Not at all."
He also called people out for continuously spreading false rumors about Zendaya, saying, "Y'all gotta be careful about what y'all saying — last year y'all had her 95 year old grandmother...calling asking if she was pregnant...She workin' she was filming a movie and y'all put out because y'all haven't seen her on Instagram or social media, y'all put out that she was pregnant."
Darnell ended his Instagram live, saying, "Y'all interrupting people's lives, she got a mom over here, y'all all in her DMs, messing with her, grandparents, everything. Stop, cut it out."
