Zendaya attended a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden earlier this week. She was seated next to Odell Beckham Jr, who previously went through several hoops to snag a date with Zendaya. The NFL player auditioned with her father and he was eventually deemed suitable. The effort on Odell’s part didn’t end up working out and the two remained friends, but Zendaya found herself back in the circulation of romance rumors after being seen with Odell at the Knicks game.
Speaking with “Extra” ahead of Tuesday night’s Footwear News Achievement Awards, Zendaya put the Odell rumors to rest yet again. The circumstances surrounding her recent appearance with Odell were, according to the actress, coincidental. “It happens all the time. Literally if I show up anywhere with anyone that automatically happens,” Zendaya says. “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. Here we go.'”
