Zendaya has spoken out after a viral TikTok falsely claimed she was pregnant, which resulted in the rumour trending on social media.
Taking to Instagram, the Spiderman star, 25, wrote: “See now, this is why I stay off Twitter…” before adding: “just making stuff up for no reason…weekly.” Watch the fake rumour below:
The false rumour implied that Zendaya was pregnant with boyfriend Tom Holland's child, and while the end of the video implied it was a prank, it didn't stop some fans from believing it.
The rumour was widely circulated on both Twitter and TikTok, and it unsurprisingly, it got back to the actor herself.
The rumour was part of an online trend known as Krissing, in reference to Kris Jenner.
It sees social media users click on sensational gossip only to be forced into watching a video of the Kardashian matriarch dancing.
Kendall Jenner has also been rumoured to be pregnant as part of the viral trend, with some social media users bemoaning how many times they’ve fallen for it.

According to Reality Titbit, the original video of Kris dancing is actually over a decade old, but it’s been garnering countless new viewers as a result of the trend.
Zendaya herself is not a big user of social media, and one fan wrote in reference to the false rumour:
“Zendaya is NOT pregnant and THIS is why she don’t talk to us! [sic]”
Another wrote: “I know Zendaya isn’t really pregnant but imagine Tom Holland’s face if he logged into Twitter yesterday and saw a tweet saying his girlfriend was pregnant and he thought she decided to tell the whole world before him.”
“Stop saying zendaya is pregnant and get krissed motherf**kers [sic],” pleaded a third.

Distractify reports that the rumour managed to gather steam because a lot of people had never heard of the ‘Krissed’ trend before.
“Can’t believe the person that said zendaya was pregnant successfully krissed everyone on here [sic],” reacted one Twitter user.
A second called for an end to the trend, writing: “To clarify the rumour, ZENDAYA IS NOT PREGNANT.
“And seriously stop this trend of krissed, it's ridiculous and not funny [sic].”
“I didn’t even think that krissed tik tok trend would go this far and then lead to zendaya being upset and rumors going that badly like I feel so bad for her,” added a third.
