Zendaya appears to have taken notice of the term “Zendaya pregnant” trending on the internet Tuesday.
“See now, this is why I stay off Twitter,” the Euphoria star wrote Wednesday on her Instagram Story, “Just making stuff up for no reason… weekly.”
Yahoo Entertainment has reached out to reps for the actress for further comment.
The Euphoria star, 25, was the subject of a viral video that made it look like she had posted an image from an ultrasound, before it abruptly cut to Kris Jenner dancing and lip-synching to the song “Lady Marmalade.” The Jenner portion is part of a trend called getting “Krissed,” the 2022 equivalent of a “Rickroll.” So, yeah, it was a fake.
All of which leads to the fact that Zendaya is not expecting a baby with her Spider-Man: No Way Home co-star Tom Holland. But they are still a couple, with her publicly wishing him a happy birthday earlier this month.
Zendaya, who moved to Los Angeles for a career in entertainment at 12, explained to Allure in Nov. 2019 that she appreciates the privacy that being an actress affords her, versus being a musical performer. (She’s done both, releasing a self-titled album in 2013 and crooning on her HBO show, too.)
“There’s a layer of personal life that I think actors get that music artists don’t,” she told the magazine. “They have no character to hide behind, so they have to be very open. [As actors] we get a little bit of a separation.”
However, she acknowledged then that social media was making that more difficult. And she certainly has a lot of fans there, counting 20.9 million followers on Twitter and 145 million on Instagram.
