Tom Holland and Zendaya are still sticking together. Amid rumors the Spider-Man costars have broken up, Tom cleared the air on Jan. 12, saying the pair are “absolutely not” split up, as seen in a video obtained by TMZ. The actor—who still follows Zendaya on Instagram—was pictured in a green hoodie while walking to his car in Los Angeles.
The pair, who play onscreen love interests Peter Parker and MJ in the Spider-Man films, first sparked romance rumors in 2017 and officially confirmed their marvelous romance in 2021 with a PDA session in Los Angeles. The steamy outing came after years of speculation about their relationship status. And although they kept their romance private in the early days, Tom and Zendaya, both 27, grew more comfortable discussing their relationship over the years.
“My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays,” Tom wrote on Instagram in Sept. 2021 in honor of Zendaya’s special day. “Gimme a call when your up xxx.” And Zendaya returned the favor the following year with a sweet tribute to her leading man, writing on Instagram in June 2022, “Happiest of birthdays to the one who makes me the happiest.”
As for why they pick and choose what to share with the public? “Our relationship is something that we are incredibly protective of and we want to keep as sacred as possible,” Tom told The Hollywood Reporter in June. “We don’t think that we owe it to anyone, it’s our thing, and it has nothing to do with our careers.”
Zendaya has also addressed the public’s interest in her romance with Tom. “Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public,” the Euphoria actress told Elle in August. “I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love. But also, I do have control over what I choose to share.”
“It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist,” she added. “You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”
