Are Zendaya and 'Euphoria' co-star Jacob Elordi dating? NYC outing pics paint a 'more-than-friends' image
The fans have been shipping the duo since August 2019, after they were spotted vacationing in Greece, followed by Zendaya's birthday
Hollywood stars, Zendaya and Jacob Elordi, have been sparking dating rumors since mid-2019. They are castmates on the show 'Euphoria', an American adaptation of an Israeli show of the same name that follows themes of drugs, addicts, sexuality, and substance enhancement. While the duo has already acknowledged the rumors and have completely denied it, their recent big city outing may have revealed a possible romance blooming. Here's a timeline of how fans started to ship the 'Euphoria' co-stars.
In August 2019, Elordi, 23 and Zendaya, 22 were spotted together in Greece back on a vacation, when they flew to Athens to celebrate Zendaya's birthday. A few months later, in October 2019, according to Us Weekly, they were spotted on a "romantic date night" and saw a movie together. They also spent Thanksgiving together in November in Syndey where there were both honored at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. Zendaya was honored with the GQ Australia's 2019 woman of the year award and Elordi was honored as with TV Actor of the Year.
They were quick to jump on the rumors, denying them and identifying their relationship as nothing but a close friendship. In December 2019, Elordi referred to his co-star as his "sister" and told GQ, "Zendaya is an amazing creative, you know? She's super dope to work with. She's an incredible artist and a very caring person to all of us, but we're all really close. There is not one weak link in that show. We've spent so much time together and everyone is just so cool to work with," breaking his silence on the dating rumors. Recently, at the 2020 American Australian Association Arts Awards in New York City, Zendaya presented Elori with the Rising Star award and slid in "best friend" to describe their relationship.
Minding their earlier comments, their recent outing may give their shippers some hope. On Monday, the duo enjoyed a fun day out in NYC - stopping by a bookstore with some green juice and a little bit of selfie-snapping and a gym date wasn't the most exciting part. Elordi was also spotted kissing Zendaya on the head.
So while Zendaya has maintained that they are just "best friends," we're still hoping these cute outings and gestures mean the romance is real and not just hopeful rumors.
