Although Zendaya’s current boyfriend may be her most popular boyfriend yet, You might be surprised to see some of the people that she has been involved with.
Irigoyen might have been Zendaya’s first public boyfriend. They met on the set of Shake It Up, where they were both costars. Zendaya was a year older than Irigoyen. Their young love didn’t last for long as the couple dated from May to December before calling it quits.
Howard was another familiar face on the set of Shake It Off who made his way into Zendaya’s heart. Howard had a recurring role on the show and the couple dated for a short time before breaking up.
The two were rumored to be dating when they starred as love interests in the “Like We Grown” music video in 2013. Zendaya never accepted the relationship publicly. In fact, she even said “There’s going to be those [rumors] but he’s my best friend in the whole world. I love him to death. That’s all it is.”
However, years later, she dished to Vogue about a secret relationship that went on from 2012 to 2016. She didn’t reveal who it was but she said that the man was her “first love”. Fans believed that she was referring to Trevor Jackson.

The former Disney star was briefly linked to the NFL player in 2016. The rumors started after they were seen together. However, Zendaya’s dad was quick to deny it. He said “There’s no relationship. We’re just friends. When you see my daughter out on a date without me, it’s a relationship.” He also added their his daughter’s hangout was more of an “audition” than a date.
The Euphoria costars were seen together on a holiday twice in 2019, which started the rumors that they were seeing each other. Both of them denied being in a relationship. But not much was left to speculate when they were reportedly seen kissing in New York. Some rumors suggest it was a proper kiss while others suggest it was a kiss on the forehead. If they ever were in a relationship, they did not acknowledge it in public.
Like many of Zendaya’s past relationships, this romance also began on the set of the movie. Zendaya and Tom met on the sets of Spiderman: Homecoming in 2016. Clapping back at the dating rumors, Zendaya said “He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends. This past how[ever] many months, we’ve had to do press tours together. There’s very few people that will understand what that’s like at 20 years old.”
Even Tom went on to say that he was not involved with anyone. However, the actors were seen sharing a steamy kiss in a car in Los Angeles in 2021, thus confirming that they are seeing each other. Neither of them has confirmed or denied the relationship, although fans are sure that they are together.
Zendaya is a young woman who is surrounded by successful and handsome men. Being seen out with a man is enough to set rumors flying if you are a celebrity. But one thing is clear, she wants to keep her dating life a private matter.
