Zendaya Slams “Hurtful” Rumors About Law Roach Fashion Show Drama

Must read

Zendaya’s Fashion Emergency Has Stylist Law Roach Coming in Clutch

Zendaya may bring the drama to the red carpet with her fierce style, but that’s as far as she’ll go. 

The Euphoria actress set the record straight on rumors there was a rift between her and her longtime stylist Law Roach after a seating mishap went viral during Paris Fashion Week in March.

“When it happened,” Zendaya recalled to Elle in an interview published Aug. 23. “I said, ‘Oh no, I hope people don’t try to create something from this.'”

And like clockwork, people did. A video immediately surfaced of her rushing to her front-row seat at the Louis Vuitton presentation, while Law stood there, unsure of where to sit. In the clip, Zendaya then pointed to a seat behind her, which sparked rumors online that there was tension between the two.

According to the Spider-Man actress, the viral clip didn’t paint the full picture.

“We’re so used to sitting together that he didn’t know where to go,” she clarified, telling the outlet she actually pointed to her assistant for help and not the sit behind her. “But obviously, people want to assume the worst of the situation, which is not always easy to deal with and hurtful.”

Law previously echoed similar sentiments about the misunderstanding.

“It was a long walk,” he told The Cut in March. “So, it was a lot of anxiety, because Zendaya is really respectful and she doesn’t like people to have to wait on her, and so it was just anxiety.”

He continued, “In my mind, my seat was next to her. So when I got there and it wasn’t, you know, it wasn’t a problem, but there was nobody to tell me where my actual seat was.”

The speculation following the video became too much to handle for Law, who announced his retirement from styling in March.

“That became really tough,” he shared, “because it made people think that Zendaya wasn’t taking care of me and wasn’t making sure I was taken care of.”

However, that couldn’t have been further from the truth. 

“I ride super hard for my team, especially for people I love,” Zendaya told Elle. “He’s involved in every fashion contract, everything I do. If I have an opportunity where he can come with me, he’s always going to be there. He’s always been my creative director in a sense, and he continues to fill that role, because it’s more than just clothes on a red carpet.”

As she put it, their bond is “a bigger thing.”

It’s clear there’s nothing that will come between the dynamic duo.

With that, look back at Zendaya’s best fashion moments over the years.
