A rep for a Dancing With the Stars alum has spoken out after rumors of a video leaked online reached a fever pitch.
Over Memorial Day weekend, a video of a woman being beaten was shared online and quickly went viral on social media. According to Newsweek, several people felt that the woman in the video looked like “Euphoria” actress Zendaya. The woman was wearing a pair of gray leggings, a long-sleeved white shirt and a pair of light-colored shoes. She was holding a grocery bag when another woman appeared to hit her on the head before kicking her.
A Zendaya representative told TMZ that the woman in the video is not Zendaya, despite speculation to the contrary. Heavy has also reached out to Zendaya’s rep for comment.
The video was taken with a cellphone and it’s unclear who shared it. It is also not known who the woman in the video actually is or where the video was actually taken.
According to her IMDb page, Zendaya is currently filming Challengers. According to Patch, she has been spotted in Massachusetts with boyfriend Tom Holland for the past few weeks.
Here’s what you need to know:
Although Zendaya did not personally comment on the video, she has been active on social media. On May 29, 2022, Zendaya shared a role in which she tagged Time Magazine.
In The Reel, she danced in a navy blue dress while standing on a blue screen, probably for a photoshoot. Several fans took to the comments section to ask Zendaya about the video.
“Why they jump at you,” asked one Instagram user.
“BAE ARE YOU OK??? LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED BLACK SPIDERMAN,” another wrote.
“Did they really jump on you honey????” asked another person.
“So you got beat up?” read another question.
Several of Zendaya’s fans quickly came to her defense and set the record straight regarding the video. At least one person spotted what appeared to be an ankle monitor on the woman’s ankle, which would further prove it wasn’t Zendaya; She is not under house arrest or in trouble with the law for any reason known to the public.
Shortly after the video of the Zendaya look-alike was shared on Twitter, the “Zendaya fight” started trending, fueling more curiosity and speculation. Despite the fact that the actress’ rep has cleared up the rumours, the video is still being talked about.
“The girl in the video has an ankle bracelet and is in trouble with the law. So the point is that people think it’s Zendaya. Not to mention how approachable people find celebrities lol. You hardly ever get an autograph. Not to mention fighting a celebrity for 10 minutes.” one person tweeted on May 31, 2022.
“I mean, who would even fight Zendaya? Even to think that it was her is insane. But um… now that this poor girl’s spanking has been plastered all over the place, can someone reach her and see if she’s alright?” someone replied to it to TMZ to clear up the confusion.
