When Zendaya and NFL football player Odell Beckham Jr. were seen at a Knicks basketball game back together last December, rumors began swirling that they were a couple. The Disney Channel star cleared up those questions by saying, “It’s funny because I didn’t go there 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!'” And that was that.
Just because the 20-year-old squashed claims that she was dating the 24-year-old doesn’t mean some fans still don’t ship ’em together, though. And, after doing some digging on Twitter, we learned that people don’t only want Zendaya to date OBJ, but a bunch of other famous cuties! Check them out below:

Here are the cute guys people THINK Zendaya’s already dated:
Meeting while filming the Disney Christmas Parade in 2011, Zendaya must have made a lasting impression. He later tweeted, "I Just Started Following @zendayamaree Best Decision Of My Life She Needs To Hit Me Back Tho Cause Idk I Just Like Talking," which was followed by a back and forth Twittermance.

Back in 2013, aspiring rapper Jay Howden would tweet, comment and give tons of shoutouts via all forms of social media to the actress. Every now and then she'd reply and leave fans speculating.

These dating rumors have been swarming for quite some time now. The two constantly gush about their close-knit friendship, and claim it's just that. BUT, in an interview earlier this year, Trevor said for now they are just friends, but, "if it happens, it happens."
What would a Dancing With the Stars partnership be without the dating conspiracy rumors? Over 10 years her senior, we
hope think that Val is more like a big bro to Z. Two years later and he still is supporting her while she does a little pomp and circumstance. So sweet!

The former Shake It Up! costars used to spend lots of time together and were rumored to be an item. Even still, they are constantly cheering each other on via Twitter, so we wouldn't be too surprised if they took the next step in their relaysh.

Back in January, The Vamps singer took to social media to tell Zendaya just how "unreal" she looked in the latest issue of Teen Vogue. Truth be told, she did look pretty hot, but we think James is totally crushing on our girl.
