Zendaya and Jacob Elordi’s romantic relationship has been the subject of much speculation since they co-starred in the hit series Euphoria.
The actors play high school athlete Nate Jacobs (Elordi) and 17-year-old recovering drug addict Rue Bennett in the hit HBO teen drama TV series (Zendaya). The series follows a group of students as they try to make sense of the world, covering topics ranging from love and sex to drugs and sexuality.
Since they starred in the first season together in June 2019, Zendaya and Elordi’s friendship has grown, and they’ve gone on vacation together to places like Australia and Greece. While the pair were once rumored to be together, they have since split up. Elordi has been romantically linked to his The Kissing Booth co-star Joey King in recent years, whereas Zendaya is now in a relationship with her Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland.

Zendaya And Jacob Elordi’s Rumored Relationship Timeline
Zendaya and Jacob Elordi’s relationship appears to be over after about a year of rumored dating. Mourn the end of their relationship by reliving the good times with the help of the timeline of their love below.
In March 2022,
Even though Zendaya is currently dating Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man, it seems that she and Elordi are still close friends and frequently work together.
The cast of Euphoria has been all over our screens lately thanks to the premiere of season 2, and now Elordi has posted a touching photo of an emotional Zendaya from the show.
The actor recently posted a re-share on Instagram from Variety, which stated, “Euphoria is now HBO’s second most-watched show behind the only Game of Thrones.”
The actor sweetly captioned the post with a red heart emoji.
In January 2022,
Despite the fact that Zendaya is currently dating Holland and Elordi reportedly broke up with his ex-girlfriend Kaia Gerber at the end of last year, the Euphoria co-stars appear to still be very close friends.
In January, they flew to Los Angeles for the premiere of the second season of their popular show.
They weren’t captured in any one-on-one shots together, but they were captured holding hands in a group photo with the rest of the cast. Zendaya also caught eyes in a vintage Valentino gown with striking stripes that had once been worn by supermodel Linda Evangelista in the 1990s.
21st September 2020
Despite their split, Zendaya and Jacob appear to be on good terms. Jacob congratulated his ex on her recent Emmy win on Instagram. Zendaya won the Emmy for Best Leading Actress in a Drama Series, making her the youngest woman ever to do so. In honor of the occasion, Jacob shared a photo of Zendaya dressed as her Euphoria character with the caption, “Congratulations captain…Bravo.”
The ex-couples will eventually reunite on the set of Euphoria, though it’s unclear when. Season two is unlikely to begin filming until 2021, but a special COVID episode is in the works to tide fans over until then. While Zendaya has been spotted on set recently, it is unknown whether Jacob’s character will appear in the special episode.
14th September 2020
We now have confirmation that Jacob and Kaia Gerber are a couple, which means Zendaya and Jacob are no longer together. Jacob has been seen out and about in New York City with Kaia recently, and they were even seen holding hands at times.
E! Online reports “[Kaia and Jacob have] been inseparable for the last several weeks, going out to dinner at night and working out at the gym together during the day,” News reports. Jacob even took Kaia to his favorite date spot, the farmers market, where he previously took both Zendaya and Joey King when they were dating.
In September 2020,
Zendaya and Jacob are reportedly over after months of not making public appearances together. According to E!, Jacob was spotted having dinner with Kaia Gerber in Malibu on September 1, which also happened to be Zendaya’s 24th birthday. Apparently, the two have been friends for a while, but sources tell E! that Jacob is interested in dating the model.
“Jacob definitely has an interest in dating Kaia, but there is nothing serious going on there,” a source told E! News. “They have many mutual friends and have hung out many times in the past. They both have very chill personalities and similar interests. Jacob makes Kaia laugh and her family adores him.”
Nonetheless, the source insists that they are simply keeping things friendly for the time being.” Kaia is keeping things friendly for now but there is a flirtation between the two,” the source explained. “She has told friends she is single and is only having fun and hanging out with people.”
In August 2020,
One of the reasons we haven’t seen much relationship content from Jacob and Zendaya recently is that they are currently quarantined on opposite sides of the world. The coronavirus has delayed production of Euphoria season two, which was supposed to begin right now. Jacob is currently in Brisbane, Australia, with his parents, according to GQ Australia. Meanwhile, Zendaya recently finished filming her latest film, Malcolm & Marie, and she recently purchased a home in Los Angeles, so she appears to be relocating to the West Coast for the time being.
Jacob recently gave some advice to E! News The Rundown on how they keep the love alive despite the long distance. “You know, pick up the phone,” he said. “Facetime is the greatest gift you have in the world at this time. Instead of sending memes and GIFs, give them a call.”
In March 2020,
Despite the fact that production on Euphoria season 2 has been halted due to the coronavirus outbreak, Jacob Elordi and Zendaya are still spending time together. The couple was seen wearing matching gray sweatpants as they went out for coffee in Los Angeles. It’s unclear whether they’re self-isolating together to avoid the virus, but I’m hoping for some couple TikToks to emerge from this quarantine.
Jacob Elordi and Zendaya were spotted enjoying themselves at a local flea market. The couple wore matching outfits as they browsed the stalls, opting for a more casual look with black tops, jeans, and blue hats. While their relationship has yet to be confirmed, you know what they say about couples who match.
In February 2020,
Even if they don’t confirm a relationship, this appears to be a date to me. In New York City, the two attended a performance of Dear Evan Hansen. According to a source, “they were definitely exchanging whispers and glances,” and the whole thing appeared “romantic.”
This trip to the theater came shortly after Jacob was seen kissing Zendaya on the lips in New York City.

30th January 2020,
At the American Australian Association Arts Awards in New York, Zendaya presented Jacob with an award. She referred to him as her “best friend.” Still, it’s not the most romantic thing in the world.
12th October 2019,
Do couples go to the movies? I’m just curious because Zendaya and Jacob went to the movies together. They were spotted at the Sherman Oaks Galleria in Los Angeles, where they were walked into the theater together, according to a source. “Jacob appeared to be trying to blend in, wearing a hat that covered his face,” the source said.
30th August 2019
Zendaya and Jacob were spotted vacationing together in Greece thanks to a tourist’s photo of them in the background. However, when asked about the trip in an E! News interview, she only mentioned that she went with her family.
In December 2018,
After speculation that she was dating actor Tom Holland, Zendaya finally spoke out about her Hollywood romance.
“There are just some things in our lives that are hard for people to understand if they don’t live it,” the Greatest Showman star said in an interview with CR Fashion Book.
I hate it when I have to explain things like call times and getting ready early. I don’t spend all day doing anything. I’m on set and I’m not allowed to use my phone because I’m working. But that doesn’t mean that an outsider wouldn’t be interested in learning about it or gaining an understanding of it.
