Tom Holland speaks out on relationship after Zendaya unfollowed him

After Zendaya unfollowed Tom Holland on Instagram, many speculated the pair had split up

Tom Holland has spoken out on his relationship with Zendaya amid rumors the pair had gone their separate ways.

The Spider-Man stars have long been friends, and sparked up a romance in 2021 following campaigning from Marvel fans.

The two actors largely keep their relationship out of the spotlight, but share the odd gushy Instagram post about one another - typically on each other's birthdays.

However, fans noticed earlier this month that Zendaya had unfollowed her beau on Instagram, sparking fears that they may have called time on their relationship.

However, it wasn't just her partner that received the unfollowing treatment, as the Euphoria star now doesn't follow a single sole on the social media app.

Many flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, to share their worries that the pair had broken up.

Someone said: "Whyyyy did Zendaya remove Tom from Instagram???? Mama miaaaa don't let it be..."

"Break up news is coming I fear," a second added.

"For the glory of my mother! Don't scare me like that," a third went on to say of the prospect of the pair splitting up.

But others have noted that Zendaya's Instagram purge is likely to be linked to her two new upcoming movies and wanting to her make her account more for promotional purposes.

She has both Dune: Part Two and The Challengers coming out in the next few months.

"I assume like most major celebs, she has a finsta and has simply decided to turn this account into strictly business/fashion/PR," someone suggested on Reddit.

Another added: "I’m pretty convinced that celebrities’ verified accounts are mostly for publicity, including the types of posts they make and who they follow/don’t follow, and that they have secret personal accounts for everything else!"

A different person went on: "I don't think that's why she unfollowed everyone. Z hasn't been on IG for months. I think she's only keeping the account for work purposes."

Well, Holland has now cleared up all the confusion as he was approached by a TMZ photographer on a recent outing.

The snapper tried to make some small talk with the star before he was questioned about his relationship with Zendaya.

The photographer directly asked the actor if he has split up with Zendaya, to which Holland responded: "No, absolutely not."

The latest gossip is far from the rumors present in September as Zendaya caused a frenzy online after fans believed she posted a snap of her wearing an engagement ring; but she was quick to debunk the speculation, pointing out that the ring was on her right hand (not her left).
