Did Odell Beckham Jr. pass Zendaya’s dad’s boyfriend audition phase? She’s spilling the tea on their situationship. Find out what she said and check out Tinashe rocking out on late night TV inside….
Disney starlet Zendaya and NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. had the rumor mill burning up when they popped up at the 2016 Grammy Awards afterparty scene together. As they hit up several parties, the twosome cozied up on the carpet together that quickly sparked dating rumors.
The kicker? Daya’s dad Kazembe Ajamu Coleman escorted the twosome around as they hit up each afterparty. Papa Coleman had us in tears when photogs caught up with them and asked if Daya and Odell were dating. His response? “WE are just friends!” Ha!
Since then, Papa Coleman chopped it up with TMZ and said Odell was the perfect gentleman, calling him courteous and respectful. Check it:
Now, the new Cover Girl ambassador is dishing on her “situationship” with the NFL wide receiver. Daya stopped by Hot 97 to chit-chat with radio personality Nessa about her current relationship status. When asked if she and Odell are officially an item, she said,
“My dad said it best, ‘It’s the audition phase!’ It’s an interview. I’m getting to know you. I don’t know yet.”
She then laughed and joked with Nessa about the viral video with her dad and said she appreciates him looking after her.
“Look, I love it,” said Zendaya. “You have to have someone around you like that. I’m cool with it. Just because you’re in the NFL don’t mean you get a pass. You still have to go through dad.”
Love their daddy-daughter relationship.
