Undercover from 2015-2018. Her latest series, HBO’s Euphoria, made her the youngest winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama series.

Zendaya’s sexuality is unclear, and it’s unlikely that she will address it any time soon


Speculation about Zendaya’s sexuality started several years ago. There was no concrete evidence to support reports that Zendaya might not be straight, but her performance in Euphoria gave basis to those rumors. Zendaya played the role of Rue – a brilliant, drug-addicted teen in a relationship with an equally messed up Jules.

Zendaya’s on-screen relationship fueled rumors about her off-screen sexuality. She faced questions about it in the press, but she shied away from talking about it. Instead, Zendaya praised the show for empowering women to embrace their sexualities. She said:

“There is something to women owning their sexuality. And I think as long as it’s done in a way where the woman is the focus, rather than male-gazing or sexualizing a female, it can be very empowering.”

Zendaya appears unbothered by the rumors about her sexuality. She is yet to address the rumors, and it is unlikely that she will address them soon.
