No wedding bells are ringing for Zendaya and Tom Holland yet! The sensational actress recently shut down the engagement speculations she caused by rocking a massive pearl ring.
The “Euphoria” star left the internet reeling with excitement after dropping a stunning picture of herself on social media. However, several eagle-eyed fans noticed the 27-year-old accessorized with a beautiful ring that many mistook for a relationship update.
“Is the Disney alum engaged?” became the number one question on netizens’ minds, and the viral narrative caught the TV personality’s attention. In a since-expired Instagram Story post, the Golden Globe Award winner set the record straight with a hilarious reaction to the misunderstanding.
Zendaya Clears The Air About Her Rumored Engagement To Tom Holland
The drama began on Thursday, September 21, when the “Shake It Up” star posted a cropped selfie with the massive gem. In the image, the entertainer rocked a gray top and a blue Golden State Warriors baseball cap while the pearl accessory graced her right ring finger.
However, many believed the ring had been on her wedding finger, leading to the engagement speculations. Shortly after the internet blew up with these rumors, the two-time Emmy Award winner refuted the claims on her Instagram Story.
The 27-year-old barely holding back her laughter as she addressed the viral narrative. “I can’t post anything, you guys! I posted it for my hat. Like not for the ring on my right finger, you guys,” the media personality explained.
“Seriously, you think that’s how I would drop the deuce? You think? Like What?” Zendaya said while laughing with a male companion in the background. After clearing up the misunderstanding, the “Dune” actress dropped the complete picture with the pearl ring.
The image showed the Oakland beauty in a casual ensemble featuring a gray shirt, cream-colored mini skirt, and beige boots. “Let me just put the full body back so y’all can relax, lmao,” the media personality captioned the full snap.
This marked the second time the Glamour Award recipient had caused a stir on social media with her jewelry. Earlier this year, the “Swag It Out” songstress was trending for her alleged engagement to Holland after dropping a selfie with a yellow diamond ring on her Instagram Story.

The picture came after her appearance at the 2023 NAACP Image Awards on February 25. “The Greatest Showman” star traded her glamorous attire from the prestigious event for a comfy home look but still rocked her makeup alongside the massive yellow gem.
Naturally, the presence of the diamond on her wedding finger sent fans rushing to social media platforms like X with unverified theories. “No one can tell me Zendaya isn’t engaged to Tom with a big yellow diamond since at least a year,” someone claimed.
“When you go to bed with THE RING…Zendaya engaged?” another wondered while a third theorist noted: “Zendaya took off every piece of jewelry from her looks tonight EXCEPT a diamond ring on her left ring finger.”
Zendaya Revealed The Reason Behind Her Low-key Romance With Tom Holland
It is no surprise that the “Dune” star spoke up about fans’ speculations given that she is super low-key about her romance with the English actor.
Last month, the “Malcolm & Marie” star opened up about her private relationship with her “Spider-Man: Far from Home” co-star. During a heart-to-heart interview, the Oakland beauty admitted that she kept her love life low-key to protect her feelings.
Although the Zendaya understood her status as a celebrity made her susceptible to having her life publicized, the 27-year-old declared she chose the parts she wished to share with the world. Zendaya’s words read:
“Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public. 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.”
The Teen Choice Award continued, “It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own, but also not being afraid to exist. You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”
Holland echoed similar sentiments about their private romance in a different interview. “Our relationship is something that we are incredibly protective of, and we want to keep as sacred as possible,” the Hollywood heartthrob revealed. “We don’t think that we owe it to anyone, it’s our thing, and it has nothing to do with our careers.”
