Tom Holland or Timothee Chalamet? Zendaya caught in LOVE TRIANGLE rumors
'Dune' co-stars Zendaya and Timothee Chalamet are setting major BFF goals while promoting their latest sci-fi feature. During a conversation with BuzzFeed, the duo took part in the BFF test where they faced a series of rapid-fire questions about each other. Chalamet did not let go of the opportunity to tease the former Disney star about her rumored relationship with Tom Holland. When asked who was Zendaya's celebrity crush, Chalamet spontaneously answered, "Easy, Tom Holland," sparking a big laugh from Zendaya. However, when faced with the same question, Zendaya answered, "I don't actually know! Maybe that's a secret on purpose."
Though Holland and Zendaya have never officially confirmed their relationship, they have been rumored to be together for quite a while now. The two have posted photos with each other with the sweetest captions and were even papped kissing in a car once. In July 2021, the pair broke the internet as they were spotted sharing a steamy smooch inside a car. Other photos also showed the pair hanging out with Zendaya dressed in a halter-style white crop top and green bottoms. Holland, on the other hand, kept it casual in a white T-shirt and blue flannel overshirt, over a pair of drawstring pants. According to reports, Zendaya's mother, Claire Stoermer, was also seen spending time with them.

Even with millions of fans worldwide rooting for the 'Spiderman' co-stars to be a couple, Zendaya was recently caught in a web of rumors about a love triangle. It did not take long for the rumor to spread like wildfire, as fans speculated that the 'Malcolm and Marie' star was romantically involved with both Timothee Chalamet and Tom Holland. The latest photos of Chalamet and Zendaya sharing candid laughs between themselves at promotional events for Dune added fuel to the fire.

However, the 24-year-old actress put the rumor mills to rest by designating Chalamet as her "friend". Recently on Instagram, Chalamet shared a photo of the pair on the red carpet of Dune premiere. The comment section was flooded quickly with link-up rumors between the two. But later Zendaya reacted to the photo and commented, "Two pretty best friends. Period.”
Meanwhile, Tom Holland and Zendaya apparently went Instagram official in September when the 'Spiderman' actor wished his "MJ" a happy birthday. "My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx," he wrote. Zendaya soon commented, "Calling now" with a heart emoji.
Back in 2017, a source told People magazine that Tom and Zendaya were 'seeing each other'. "They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man. They've been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye but they've gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another, " the source said. Another source added, "They're both really ambitious and they challenge each other, but, most importantly, they make each other crack up. They seem to have a really similar sense of humor and love joking around together. They have great banter back and forth."
However, it is believed that they broke up afterward, as Zendaya was spotted kissing her 'Euphoria' co-star Jacob Elordi in February 2020. Since Holland and Zendaya themselves are tight-lipped about their relationship, fans can assume that they reunited once again in 2021.
