Zendaya‘s stylist Law Roach has addressed the rumors of his alleged beef with the actress which has made the rounds since the Paris Fashion Week events. He also cleared the air on where they stood after their awkward encounter, captured in a viral video, seemingly defending the Dune star.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, March 15, the stylist and image architect clarified that they had no bad blood between them, despite the prevailing speculations. He wrote:
“So y’all really think I’m breaking up with Z….. we are forever!” he began in a series of pointed tweets. “She’s my little sister and it’s real love not the fake industry love.”
He added a GIF from The Color Purple movie, showing sisters Sofie and Celie vowing never to part ways, captioning it,
“Literally me and Zendaya.”
Zadaya And Law Roach’s Incident At The Paris Fashion Week
His clarification followed the prevailing fan theory that he and the Euphoria actress had a fallout. This speculation began making the rounds after a clip of Zendaya walking into the Louis Vuitton show at the Paris Fashion Week, clad in a tiger-print attire from the brand. Law Roach, the stylist responsible for the head-turning getup, followed closely and stopped in front of Zendaya’s seat as if asking to sit. Zendaya then gestured for him to sit on the second row.
The gesture led to speculations that they had something else amiss. Several fans have pointed this out since the incident, with the rumors becoming more prevalent after Roach announced his retirement.
The image architect shared the news of his retirement from the fashion industry on Tuesday, citing “the politics of the business” as the reason behind his decision. In his Instagram post, he also thanked everyone who supported him and his career over the years, adding, “my cup is empty.” Going further, Roach explained that his decision went beyond fashion itself, writing:
“If this business was just about clothes I would do it for the rest of my life but unfortunately, it’s not! The politics, the lies and false narratives finally got me! You win… I’m out.”
The news left most of the icon’s followers devastated and shocked. Many immediately referenced the video from the Louis Vuitton show at the Paris Fashion Week, ultimately vilifying Zendaya. Several took to Zendaya’s social media to bash her treatment of her stylist, and seemingly causing his early retirement.
With Law Roach speaking out in Zendaya’s defense and shutting down the feuding rumors for good, it appears she is finally out of the mix for beefing her stylist. This leaves the question of what “political” mystery lay behind his decision to quit the celebrity fashion world.
