Real love is always more exciting than any love story ever told on screen. In spite of their celebrity status, Tom Holland and Zendaya prefer to keep their relationship private. Fans have a hard time knowing if they are still together or not because of how private they are about their relationship.
It was even speculated by fans that the two would get engaged by the end of 2021. Fans have been left wondering if they are still a unit in 2022 in light of the band’s radio silence. Following her Emmy win in September 2022, Zendaya confirmed that she and her boyfriend were still together.
“Well, I didn’t have to text my mom because my mom was already there, she’s here tonight, which is very special,” Zendaya told E! News after winning Best Lead Role in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Rue on HBO’s Euphoria. “I also sent my boyfriend a text.”

Tom Holland Has Spoken About Their Relationship
Even before photos of the couple kissing in July 2021 surfaced online, Tom made reference to the Impossible actor’s girlfriend in a series of Instagram posts. The star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe said he and Zendaya felt “robbed of our privacy” after pictures of them together went viral in November 2021.
“One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world,” he said.
Tom then clarified in the interview that the issue “is just that we don’t want [to talk about it],” rather than “about not being ready [to share their romance publicly].
“I can’t have that conversation without her,” he continued. You know, I have too much respect for her to say that. … Our story is not my story but rather our story. And when we’re both ready, we’ll discuss exactly what it is.
