ZENDAYA'S SIBLINGS: SHE HAS 5 BROTHERS AND SISTERS

Zendaya may be one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but she prefers to keep her personal life private. As a result, fans may be surprised to learn that the stylish actress has five siblings.

Austin Stoermer Coleman, Zendaya's eldest sibling, is reportedly an actor, but he does not appear to be on social media, making it challenging to keep up with his life updates.

She talked about teaching the kids some essential life skills. She explained that she wore her locs on the Oscars red carpet to remind people of color to embrace their hair. She said she wanted to set a good example for her little nieces, who have curly hair.

When someone shared a picture of her parents and described them as "ugly" in an offensive post, Zendaya responded by telling the troll that her parents are "two of the most selfless people in the world."

Sadly, Zendaya's parents divorced after eight years of marriage, according to reports in 2016. Her parents are said to have filed for divorce due to irreconcilable differences but have remained amicable.
