Zendaya's mom has appeared to shut down rumours of her daughter's apparent engagement to Tom Holland.

Apologies to TomDaya fans, first of all for referring to yourselves as such, and secondly for having to wait for your dream couple to tie the knot.

Social media rumours began circulating that the two Marvel stars - who previously met on the 2016 set of Spider-Man: Homecoming - were 'reportedly engaged'.

Twitter account @thepophive tweeted a photo of the pair, which was captioned: "Tom Holland and Zendaya are reportedly engaged!"

The tweet has, so far, racked up over half a million likes after sending social media into an absolute frenzy.

However, it seems that Zendaya's mother - Claire Stoermer - has shut down the so-called rumour mill.

Stoermer is a former teacher who now owns handmade jewellery brand Kizzmet Jewellery, and she's often spotted beside Zendaya on the red carpet.

And it seems she couldn't just stand by while fake news about her famous daughter was doing the rounds.

In a cryptic message on her Instagram story, she wrote: "Clickbait typically refers to the practice of writing sensationalized or misleading headlines in order to attract clicks on a piece of content.

"It often relies on exaggerating claims or leaving out key information in order to encourage traffic. The term is generally used in a dismissive sense."

Earlier this year, Zendaya felt she was forced to deny pregnancy rumours.

A viral TikTok falsely claimed the actor was pregnant and began trending on Twitter.

Zendaya responded bluntly on Instagram, writing: "See now, this is why I stay off Twitter…,” before adding: “just making stuff up for no reason…weekly."

Commenting on the rumour, one fan wrote: “Zendaya is NOT pregnant and THIS is why she don’t talk to us! [sic]”

Another added: “I know Zendaya isn’t really pregnant but imagine Tom Holland’s face if he logged into Twitter yesterday and saw a tweet saying his girlfriend was pregnant and he thought she decided to tell the whole world before him.”

“Stop saying zendaya is pregnant and get krissed motherf**kers [sic],” a third wrote.

Someone else echoed: "To clarify the rumour, ZENDAYA IS NOT PREGNANT."

The famous couple have also joked about their height difference - Zendaya, who is 5’10 compared to Holland at 5’8.

Chatting on The Graham Norton Show last year, the host said: “I heard you talking somewhere Zendaya about how your height difference makes those stunts more complicated.”

After which Tom cut in to say: "Thank you, Graham.”

Explaining the difficulties, Zendaya said: "There's a particular stunt where Spider-Man swings us on top of a bridge, and he places me there.

"He's supposed to gently rest MJ on the bridge and walk away from her. Because of our height difference... if we’re, like, on the same point… we were attached, I would land before him.

“My feet obviously hit the ground before he does."

She then turned to Tom and asked: “So, what would happen?”, prompting him to explain something called a ‘bottom mark’ that is used while filming stunts.

He said: “It’s called a bottom mark, and the bottom mark is basically a thing that they do in stunts that is designed to stop you shattering your kneecaps.

“So Zendaya would land… I’m the superhero, I’m supposed to look cool. She would land, and then I would sort of land like this and my feet would swing from underneath me and she would catch me.”
