Zendaya and Jacob Elordi really have been dating for months and months, despite their initial attempts to squash romance rumours. The couple was photographed kissing on the lips while out in New York City yesterday, giving photo proof they aren’t just friends. E! ran the shot and got intel from a source, who dished that the two’s relationship really heated up after filming for Euphoria‘s first season ended.
“Jacob and Zendaya have been seeing each other for months now,” the source said. “They started as close friends but it became romantic after their show ended.”
“They have been inseparable since last summer and have been making time for each other in between projects,” the source continued. “Jacob has met Zendaya’s family, and everyone adores him. They have a lot of fun together and have a lot in common.”

I have a lot to say, and I don’t know how to get it out, or even process these last 8 weeks but I’ll try. I’m so grateful for this show. For the beautiful family I’ve gained from it, for the self discovery and purpose I’ve found in it, and the people that we’ve been able to connect with and speak to through it. We spent months, hard months, pouring ourselves into something we love, and it was an honor to have done so beside so many insanely talented, extraordinary people. From my brilliant cast mates, H&MU, Costume Design, Cinematographers, ADs, Producers, the whole crew, each of you have inspired me and pushed me to be better everyday. Sam, thank you for trusting me with the most honest parts of yourself and bringing Rue into my life, for both of you, I’m forever grateful. Alright I could do this forever. But you get the idea, I’m thankful for a lot. And also for all of you out there for receiving our work with an open heart. Can’t wait to do it all again! With all this being said, the finale episode 8 tonight????

Zendaya called Elordi her “best friend” last week when presenting an award to him at the American Australian Association Arts Awards. Elordi, meanwhile, tried to play her off as a sister in an interview published in GQ Australia this December.
“She’s like my sister,” he said. “Zendaya is an amazing creative, you know? She’s super dope to work with. She’s an incredible artist and a very caring person to all of us. But we’re all really close. There is not one weak link in that show. We’ve spent so much time together and everyone is just so cool to work with. Sam Levinson is just a genius and working with him, it was just like electricity all the time. I was in awe. Like a kid in a candy shop.”
