Did Tom Holland and Zendaya Break up? Truth Revealed

The rumor mill has been churning lately, suggesting a possible split between Tom Holland and Zendaya. Fans were left wondering if things were rocky in paradise after Zendaya abruptly unfollowed everyone on Instagram, including her boyfriend. However, putting such speculation to rest, Tom recently addressed the rumors directly, during an interview with TMZ paparazzo in Los Angeles he confirmed that their relationship is still happily going strong. 

Now, the big question is where do these rumors of a potential TomDaya split come from? What sparked these whispers of a breakup? Well, earlier this month, Zendaya unfollowed everyone on Instagram, including her longtime boyfriend, Tom. Her recent unfollowing spree, which happened just before the promo for her new film Challengers, sparked speculation that it might be part of a social media reset for the promotion.

Still, Zendaya’s decision led others to assume that she and Holland had gone their separate ways and broke up, hence the unfollow (especially considering how low-key they are these days). The two haven’t been seen in public together for quite some time since October exactly when the two were spotted together making a grocery run in L.A. and wearing protection, both were masked up. Since then, however, no sign of them in public. But it appears that the couple rang in the New Year together (according to TMZ sources).

In October 2021, Zendeya opened up about her social media use and told People that she often goes quiet to give herself a mental break. "Being on [social media] would kind of make me anxious, or I would start to overthink a little too much," the Emmy winner shared. "[My fans] want me to ... be happy and exist beyond social media." For others dealing with similar feelings, Zendaya also advised breaks. "Take the time that you need," she said, "and don't compare yourself to anyone else."

In her cover interview for Vogue Italy's July 2022, she also said her fans are "really understanding that I'm human, even the hardcore ones, and they want me to be happy and I genuinely feel that from them," continuing, "They're really respectful of my boundaries and the things that I choose to keep a little bit more private and keep for myself." Zendeya’s decision to take breaks from social media could be one of the reasons behind unfollowing others on Instagram. 

Zendeya and Holland are notoriously private about their relationship, but even still, it’s hard to digest why Zendeya’s Instagram follower count would suggest anything about her relationship status. Other stars just as Beyoncé, Adele, and Zendaya’s Dune co-star Timothée Chalamet are also on the zero-following movement—and last time we checked, they’re all in relationships.

Tom and Zapped star have been romantically linked for more than two years, but they first met as friends back in 2016. “Our relationship is something that we are incredibly protective of and we want to keep as sacred as possible," Holland told The Hollywood Reporter. “We don't think that we owe it to anyone. It's our thing, and it has nothing to do with our careers.”

Recently during an interview at the Critics Choice Awards, Holland also offered some rare insight into his relationship saying, “Zendaya and I will, every now and then, watch Spider-Man 1 and reminisce about being 19 and making those movies again.” “I love those movies, and I love savoring those moments, so I try not to watch them as often as I would maybe like to because it’s so special. It's such a luxury, such a gift to be able to sit down and sort of relive your youth.”

While the unfollowing sparked curiosity, Tom’s direct response to breakup rumors made it clear that the couple is currently on solid ground and are happy together. As always, only time will tell what the future holds, but for now, fans can rejoice in their continued togetherness.
