It took Euphoria to convince me that Zendaya could ever be anyone other than Mechee. And I guess it took Tom Holland getting a girlfriend to convince the world that he and Zendaya are well and truly over, if they ever were together to begin with. Maybe it’s because she’s a musical theater geek at heart, but Zendaya doesn’t seem averse to playing up a showmance. Even though she’s not one to plaster her Greek vacation photos all over Instagram like some people we know, somebody posted a couple of Instagram stories that prove Zendaya and her Euphoria co-star Jacob Elordi were together at some point during her trip. So obviously they’re fucking.
According to Lainey Gossip, Zendaya was in Greece vacationing with her family this week. Zendaya and Jacob weren’t initially pictured together, but internet sleuths be doing the absolute most. Based on wind patterns, sea currents, and migratory bird patterns, they have determined that Jacob and Zendaya are sitting in a tree, doing you know what. Oh come on, you’re not going to make me spell it out for you are you?
Note that the pergola they are standing under is the same in both pictures.

Today, further proof of their proximity came when they were photographed visiting the Acropolis in Athens. TOGETHER. Well, TOGETHER in a group.

Some folks also wondered if Jacob had attended Zendaya’s stateside birthday party. People with more free time than most, think he’s the one holding the dog.

If Zendaya and Jacob really are an item, it makes me a little queasy just because Jacob plays such a creepy no-good dude on Euphoria. But he’s quite handsome and probably a good actor since if I ever saw him in real life, I’d want to kick him in the balls and run away. Zendaya clearly has no such reservations.
Laney Gossip says Jacob used to date Joey King, the actress who played Gypsy Rose Blanchard on The Act, and that when they broke up, he wiped his Instagram clean. Jacob and Joey met on the set of a Netflix movie called The Kissing Booth. Sounds so wholesome! Funny how they both moved on to much, much darker fare in their professional lives. If Zendaya and Jacob are in fact an item, let’s hope for both their sakes, that life doesn’t imitate art.
