The Heartbreaking News That’ll Change Zendaya Coleman’s Life Forever
It was just about a year ago that Zendaya Coleman was forced to stand up for her parents after Internet trolls called them ugly. Sadly, Claire Stoermer and Kazembe Ajamu Coleman have found their way back into the headlines, and not for good reason.
According to TMZ, the 19-year-old’s mom and dad filed for divorce last week, citing irreconcilable differences. Claire and Kazembe have been married for about eight years.
Since the K.C. Undercover star is over 18, she luckily won’t be in the middle of any child-support issues. There was potential for Zendaya to be put in the middle of her parents’ split, however, because Kazembe is her manager and makes a percentage of her earnings. It’s clear that both parties aren’t looking for this sad situation to get messy, however, because neither filed a request for spousal support after the split is finalized.
The news of the Disney Channel queen’s parents’ separation comes as a major shock to most fans, as the pair seemed so happy and in love not long ago.
Even though it seems that the divorce is as amicable as possible, having your entire family dynamic change is tough NMW, and ZSwaggers want the teen to know how much she is loved and being thought about during this difficult time.
