The opposite of Rue and Nate, for sure! Zendaya and Jacob Elordi, who began dating in 2019, have become just another couple that met while working together.
Euphoria, which premiered on HBO in June 2019, stars a Disney Channel veteran and a Kissing Booth star as high school rivals Rue Bennett and Nate Jacobs. Until they were photographed together all over the world, the two appeared to be nothing more than costars.
Zendaya and Elordi’s relationship initially came to light when they were spotted together on vacation in Greece in August of this year. It wasn’t long before the two took trips to Sydney and New York, in an attempt to minimize their connection. After months of rumors, Us Weekly confirmed in February 2020 that they were dating.
Their Euphoria co-star Will Peltz offered his blessing to the relationship before it became official. According to him, “they’d absolutely be a cute pair, for sure!” he exclusively told Us Weekly in September of this year.
Elordi and Zendaya preferred to keep their relationship covert, even going so far as to deny it in December 2019. As far as he was concerned, he likened her to “my sister.”
Before they started dating, the actress and the Australian native were both related to other actors. The Kissing Booth co-star Joey King and Elordi dated from 2017 to 2018.
According to the Act alumni, “I believe it was good that we were able to date in the first place,” she stated during an August 2020 visit on The Howard Stern Show. “I’ve learned more from him than anyone else in my life.”
With respect to Zendaya and Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star Tom Holland, they’ve always denied any romantic entanglements. It was in August 2017 that Variety reported that “we are buddies.” Aw, man. That guy? He’s awesome. One of my closest friends, if not the closest, is him. A lot of time has been spent doing press tours together in the last few months. At 20 years old, “very few people will be able to relate to what you’re going through.”
Later that year, the star of The Greatest Showman shared her opinions on dating in her twenties in an interview with E! News. During an interview with Zendaya: The App, she said, “I’m very anti being in a committed relationship when you’re young because when people are young, they make horrible mistakes sometimes because they don’t know any better.”… When you’re both trying to figure out who you are, being in a relationship can be difficult.
In 2018, the two met on the set of HBO’s Euphoria. The first episode aired in the summer of 2019.
It will be in August 2019
When Zendaya and Elordi were spotted together on vacation in Athens, Greece, they fuelled speculations of a relationship. Us reported at the time that an eyewitness had observed: “They appeared like they were getting a touch intimate. The two of them appeared to be flirting with each other at one point.
When will it be?
When the couple was spotted visiting the Sherman Oaks Galleria in California on a movie date, it prompted curiosity. An onlooker said, “It was just the two of them out together.” In an attempt to hide his identity, “Jacob wore a hat that completely obscured his face.”
The Shake It Up alum and Elordi flew to Sydney for Thanksgiving in November of 2019. They were in Australia for the 2019 GQ Men of the Year Awards, but they were not pictured together. They didn’t attend the event.
Toward the end of 2019
Two Hearts actor was coy about their connection in GQ Australia’s “Men of the Year” cover story. He played coy. It was a joking remark, “She’s like my sister.” If you don’t already know, Zendaya is an incredible artist. She’s a blast to collaborate with. She’s a gifted artist who also shows a lot of concern for the people around her. Even so, we’re all really close now. That show has not a single weak connection.”
When Elordi kissed Zendaya on the head when they were out in New York City in February 2020, they displayed some PDA. As they shopped in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, they became acquainted.
Approximately two years from now
According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, the co-stars were in a relationship. When the news broke, they were each in New York City for separate Fendi events. According to an eyewitness, the duo “kept their distance and didn’t really mix inside.”
When Elordi and Zendaya were shopping at a Los Angeles flea market in March 2020, they became amused. Her mother came along for the trip with her.
