Zendaya attended the FN Achievement Awards earlier this week (in a sharp black, low-cut number) to accept her prize for Launch of the Year. While walking the red carpet at the event, the Spider-Man: Homecoming starlet discussed rumblings that she and Odell Backham Jr. are dating one another…and she didn’t hesitate to clear up the confusion.
“It happens all the time,” she told Extra, referencing getting spotted alongside Beckham Jr. at a Knicks game earlier this week. “Literally if I show up anywhere with anyone that automatically happens.”
Zendaya clarified that she didn’t go to the basketball game with the New York Giants wide receiver and was even a little annoyed when she discovered he was there if only because of the gossip their joint appearance would drive.
“It’s funny because I didn’t go with him, actually; he just happened to be there as well. I didn’t know he was going to be there. Immediately when I saw him I was like ‘Oh, dang it!’”
