Zendaya and Tom Holland have been one of the most admired celebrity couples, even when they didn’t exclusively announce their romantic relationship. And recently, rumors about the two surfaced on the internet, claiming that they were ready to get engaged, news which naturally saw fans break out in a rush of excitement.

However, Zendaya’s mother, Claire Stoermer seems to have doused said rumors with a subtle dig at media outlets for spreading false information, by putting up the definition of “clickbait” on her Instagram story.

It looks the Euphoria star’s mom isn’t in any rush to get her daughter engaged to Tom Holland, at least not as of right now.

Zendaya and Tom Holland ended up becoming the center of attraction as certain sources reported that the pair is apparently on the verge of solidifying their relationship by getting engaged in no time. But the former’s mother seems to disagree, or at least that’s what she has tried to hint at with her recent Instagram story.

Following these rumors, Claire Stoermer left a cryptic message via Instagram which is believed to be targeted towards news sources for sparking rumors and feeding false information to the public concerning her daughter’s relationship with the Uncharted actor.

“Clickbait typically refers to the practice of writing sensationalized or misleading headlines in order to attract clicks on a piece of content. It often relies on exaggerating claims or leaving out key information in order to encourage traffic. The term is generally used in a dismissive sense.” 

Although this doesn’t reveal much, it definitely isn’t a coincidence that she posted this just when Zendaya and Holland were reportedly looking forward to “settle down” and “start a family.”

Are Zendaya and Tom Holland engaged?

The pair first crossed paths on the set of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2016, shortly after which gossip about their off-screen chemistry started to travel. But the pair never confirmed anything regarding their relationship and neither did they deny it, up until July 2021, when the two were spotted kissing. And they have indeed been together ever since.


Recently, an insider via a report that was published in US Weekly stated that the Spider-Man: Far From Home stars are absolutely “serious” about each other and are devoted to “planning a real future together.”

However, though reports claim that Zendaya and Holland are close to officially tying the knot, the veracity of said claims continues to remain uncertain and informal, along with the fact that the Primetime Emmy-winning actress’ mother seems to have debunked these rumors.


So, fans should probably take all this with a grain of salt.
