We have bad news for anyone who has been crushing on either Zendaya or Jacob Elordi, who both star on HBO’s Euphoria. They are both off the market now since they’ve apparently discovered each other—and who can blame them?
On Monday the internet literally exploded after Jacob and Zendaya were caught kissing and being seriously cute in general. A user on Twitter said, “Have we ever seen ZENDAYA THIS happy and PROUD to claim a man and this okay with the paps?? God, she’s winning rn and I’m so happy for her.”
A source from E! told Cosmopolitan that Zendaya and Jacob have Euphoria to thank for bringing them together, saying, “Jacob and Zendaya have been seeing each other for months now. They started as close friends but it became romantic after their show ended.”
“They have been inseparable since last summer and have been making time for each other between projects. Jacob has met Zendaya’s family and everyone adores him. They have a lot of fun together and have a lot in common.”
Zendaya and Jacob were even caught vacationing together in Greece over the summer and traveled together to Australia to spend Thanksgiving together. I think it’s pretty safe to say that the two feel pretty serious about their relationship.
However, as soon as November, Jacob was still denying rumors that the two were a thing, telling GQ Australia that, “She’s like my sister. 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.”
Really close, indeed.
Luckily for Elordi, Zendaya was already cool with the idea of dating someone who was also in the entertainment industry. In a 2018 interview, Zendaya made it clear that she thought someone in the same industry would understand the kind of life that she lives.
“There’s just certain things in our lives that’s hard for people to understand if they don’t live it,” she said in CR Fashion Book. “Like if I have to explain what a call time is or why I have to start glam early. I’m not just sitting around all day. I’m on camera, I’m shooting, I’m working, I can’t have my phone.”
“But that doesn’t mean somebody who’s not in the industry can’t understand it or wouldn’t want to learn or understand it.”
