Zendaya’s Love Triangle

Zendaya has got the temperature rising after her steamy love affair with Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist. In the trailer, Tashi is seen as a young tennis prodigy and she rises the ranks, she forms a relationship with up-coming players, Art and Patrick. 

In the trailer, a young teen Tashi is seen getting intimate with Art and Patrick. 

Years later, she is now married to Art and also his coach. Art, a grand slam champion is currently on a losing streak and Tashi encourages him to take part in the Challenger series. She believes this will be a good comeback for him, However, things go haywire when she realizes that Art’s next opponent is Patrick. 

The film revolves around how Tashi faces her past and what would the consequences of the match be.

Fans Mock Tom Holland- “Tom is crying rn”

Off-screen, Zendaya’s relationship is not as complicated as Tashi’s. She and Tom Holland have been going strong and even tho their relationship has been kept secretive, the couple often post each other on social media.

Fans were however quick to make fun of Tom after the trailer had some pretty steamy scenes between the three. While it’s ordinary to see actors get intimate on set, Twitter users were quick to point otherwise. 

While most of the comments were memes and baseless, some fans did come to his defense, as acting is a career that goes beyond the rules set by society. 

Jokes apart, fans are all excited to see Zendaya’s new movie as she goes beyond playing the teenager in her movies and will be seen in a more mature adult role.
