It’s official! Zendaya and Tom Holland confirm years of romance rumors as they’re spotted sharing a passionate kiss in LA
After years of denying romance rumors, it seems as if Zendaya and Tom Holland sealed things with a kiss.
On Thursday July 1, The Spider-Man: No Way Home co-stars were seen sharing a few passionate kisses during a drive in Los Angeles, per Page Six.
The two first sparked dating rumors in 2017 after wrapping Spider-Man: Homecoming but the Euphoria actress, 24, shut the chatter down on numerous occasions.

In the images the pair were seen driving in Holland’s Audi, before they packed on the PDA at a red light.
The couple were seen smiling and laughing before the Cherry actor, 25, pulled her in and later gazed at her while resting his hand on her chin.
According to the publication the images were taken at sunset in the Silverlake neighborhood of LA, close to where her mother Claire Stoermer resides.
Zendaya was seen in a cropped white tank top that exposed her midriff and a pair of green painter pants with converse high tops as they stopped by her mom’s residence.
Holland donned a white T-shirt and black shorts with a flannel and was photographed helping her carry personal belongings out to his car.

The sighting comes after nearly four years of denying any romance between them, and on June 1, Zendaya continued to add fuel to the fire with a birthday tribute to Holland.
‘Pretty glad you were born…happy birthday @tomholland2013,’ she wrote on a photo of him.
In 2017 a source told People that they were dating but had been ‘super careful to keep it private.’
‘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 insider said.
The Dune actress then took the matter to Twitter in July 2017, where she tried to shrug off the insider report. ‘My favorite is when it says we go on vacations together HA! I haven’t been on a vacation in years! hbu @tomholland1996???,’ she wrote with laughing cry emojis.

Birthday wishes! On June 1, Zendaya wished Holland a happy birthday on Instagram. ‘Pretty glad you were born…happy birthday @tomholland2013,’ she wrote on a photo of him

And a month later she told Variety they were just really good pals. ‘He’s literally one of my best friends. This past how many months we’ve had to do press tours together. There’s very few people that will understand what that’s like at 20 years old.’
But it seemed as if the pair took a break from dating, as in 2019 Tom was linked to Olivia Bolton before it was reported that they had split in April 2020 and just wanted to ‘be friends.’
Zendaya on the other hand was linked to Euphoria co-star Jacob Elordi around that same time, but last fall he began dating now girlfriend Kaia Gerber.
In the British actor’s recent GQ cover story Hollan continued to sing Zendaya’s praises while revealing she had helped him to be more approachable when it came to fan encounters.

‘Talking to Zendaya’s helped me a lot, actually,’ Holland said in April. ‘I used to come across sometimes as a bit of a dick to fans, mainly as I was always so surprised that they’d want a picture with me or signature or whatever.
‘Zendaya spotted this and quickly told me that this sort of reaction was going to be more aggro than just smiling and taking the picture. She totally changed the way I am able to be more comfortable in public,’ he revealed.
Tom also said that dating in the public eye was one of the things he ‘worried about most,’ as an actor.
‘It’s very nerve-racking. It means that if you are dating someone, you have to be really conscious of their feelings, because if something does happen between the two of you, it’s not just happening between the two of you, it’s happening in front of the entire world. It’s one of the things I worry about most, of all the things in my career.’
