With an amazing personality, killer dance moves, and a fashionable sense of style, it’s no question that young men would be attracted to Disney channel superstar, Zendaya. The mystery, however, lies in whether the potential candidates for a boyfriend can impress her, or in this particular case, her father.

Post the 2016 Grammy Awards a few weeks ago, Zendaya caused quite a buzz when making her appearances at the celebrity studded after parties. Surprisingly, the hype had nothing to do with her mullet and everything to do with an accessory that could not go unnoticed: arm candy and New York Giants player Odell Beckham Jr!

Reporters from TMZ were on the scene but their questions were met with answers from Zendaya’s dad-ager, Kazembe Ajamu Coleman, who shut down any possibility for rumors to rise. “What relationship? We’re just friends. When you see my daughter out on a date without me, it’s a relationship,” he responded. When asked about what was going on between the two, he answered “It’s like an audition. It’s an interview.

On Thursday morning, during a visit to 92.3 Amp radio station, Zendaya had the opportunity to address the budding rumors of she and Beckham’s relationship, only confirming her father’s previous commentary.

“Here’s the thing, a couple of things, first of all it wasn’t really a date,” she explained. “We went to some events together, because we’re friends. We were with a group, we were with multiple people. I was with my stylist and everything like that.”

She also discussed the importance of getting her father’s approval before dating, regardless of the man’s circumstances.

“Here’s the thing: Even if it does progress, you gotta go through my dad first,” she said. “Just because you’re in the NFL, you killin’ stuff, that doesn’t mean you get to skip past pops. He’s not going to allow that to happen.

She ended the conversation clarifying that Beckham is in the process of auditioning.

Moral of the story: for all those interested in dating this beautiful young lady, be prepared to make it through Mr. Coleman first!
