New York City, NY, United States (4E) – Zendaya and Odell Beckham Jr . were spotted together at a 2016 Grammys after party a few weeks ago and the rumor mill started saying that the two were dating but the actress says that is not the case.

According to the father of Zendaya , Kazembe Ajamu Coleman, who was with his daughter and Beckham during their night out, the two are not yet in a relationship. Coleman said, "What relationship? We're just friends. If you see my daughter out on a date without me, it's a relationship. It's like an audition… it's an interview."

The 19-year-old singer then seconded the comments of her father about the real score between her and 23-year-old New York Giants player as she sat down for an interview with 92.3 Amp radio this Thursday. She shared, "Here's the thing, a couple of things, first of all it wasn't really a date. 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 pointed out that there will not be a romantic relationship between them unless her dad approves. She added, “Here's the thing: Even if it does progress, you gotta go through my dad first. He’s auditioning. Auditioning.”

Photos of the two started to surface on the internet. Zendaya sported a black outfit and paired it with strap-on lengthy sandals. Beckham, on the other hand, wore a long top over white jeans and a jacket.

Beckham has not yet commented on the latest statements of Zendaya .
