Just slow down everybody! Just because you are pictured with someone on the red carpet does not mean that you are…dating! Yes, they showed up to the Grammys afterparty together arm-in-arm. Yes, they are friends, but that doesn’t mean he’s earned “boyfriend” status just yet. The two first sparked rumors that they were dating after posing for a few couple-ish pics following the awards show on Feb. 15.
During an interview with New York’s 92.3 AMP Radio on Thursday, the 19-year-old actress revealed that her post-Grammys photo op with the New York Giants star “wasn’t really a date.” Zendaya said the two “went to some events together” because they’re “friends,” but explained that they “were with a group.”
And if Odell, 23, wants to take things any further, he’s going to have to clear it with her father first. The former Disney Channel star joked that “just because you’re in the NFL, you killin’ stuff, that doesn’t mean you get to skip past pops.”
It’s too bad because the two make a super cute couple! We’ll just have to wait and see what happens…Go Zendaya!
