We’d like to think we know quite a lot about Zendaya, especially since we’ve been following her since she first stepped onto the scene as Rocky Blue on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up! in 2010. While the 20-year-old is very open about body image, bullying, etc., she often keeps one aspect of her life private — her relationship status. Sure, the K.C. Undercover actress has been rumored to date a few famous guys, including Odell Beckham Jr. and Trevor Jackson, but she’s never actually confirmed a potential bae.
Turns out, while Zendaya was busy keeping her lips sealed for all these years, she was actually busying romancing a mystery man. And this relationship didn’t just come and go — it lasted for four freakin’ years!!
ZC recently told Vogue Magazine that this secret boyfriend was the one who gave her Noon, an adorable little miniature black Schnauzer, over the holidays in 2015. Shortly after he presented her the pooch, however, he decided to break up with her.
“It was my first love,” she said. “It wasn’t a good ending.”
Zendaya hasn’t dated anyone else since, despite rumors, but says she’s slowly but surely getting over the heartbreak and is ready to move on.
“You know you’re okay in a breakup when your first thought is not, ‘What did I do wrong?’, it’s, ‘That was the dumbest decision of your life, and you’re going to regret it forever.'”
So, was Daya’s hidden lover someone the world predicted, or was it someone else entirely? We may never know for sure!!
Could the mystery man be one of these guys who were once linked to Zendaya?
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.
