Zendaya Speaks Out on Her Parents' Divorce

It's not what you think.

Zendaya wants to set the record straight.
Earlier today, news broke that the young star's parents had filed for divorce after 8 years of marriage (they tied the knot when she was 12) and were sorting through their joint assets. Since the actress is an adult, custody isn't in question, but the money her father earned as her manager — considered community property since he went on the payroll after they got married — could be. That would make an awkward situation for the for Spider-Man star.
Well, now Z has something to say about the whole potentially messy situation.

Turns out, no "clean up on aisle three" needed, nothing to see here:

Looks like the news is old news. Zendaya and her family just happen to be good at keeping their private business out of the tabloids — another reason she's not just your average starlet.
Glad to see this family is working things out with respect for each other. See how Zendaya gracefully handled another sticky situation — body shaming on the internet — on BET Breaks, above.
