Odell Beckham Jr. may be a huge NFL star, but when it comes to his relationship with Zendaya, he needs to jump through all the same hoops as anyone else. In a new interview, the 19-year-old opens up about their Grammys date night and why she willingly had her dad play third wheel!
It takes some work to win over Zendaya, 19, and she certainly didn’t hold back from putting Odell Beckham Jr., 23, to the test when they went to a Grammys after-party together back in February. Find out why she brought her dad along on her very first date night with the NFL star here!
“If a guy can handle my dad the first time, then he’s worth giving my time to,” the Disney star tells Marie Claire. “If he can’t, then I might as well not waste my time. Just because they’re in the NFL doesn’t mean they can get a pass.:
Hmm….Zendaya didn’t say whether or not Odell was actually able to handle her dad, but interestingly, we haven’t seen them together since the Grammys — maybe he didn’t pass the test? Still, back at the end of February, the 19-year-old admitted that Odell was still in the “audition” process when it came to a relationship, so maybe he hasn’t made it past that phase just yet!
As we previously told you, the duo attended a Grammys after-party with her dad and were acting totally coupley throughout the evening.
“There was no heavy PDA, but they were very close,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They came together and left together.” Hmm…looks like we’ll have to be looking out for Zendaya at Odell’s games with the New York Giants next fall, huh!?
Do you think Odell and Zendaya are a cute couple, HollywoodLifers?
