Zendaya’s stylist, Law Roach, has finally broken his silence on his shock resignation to furiously deny that the actress forced him to quit his job. The celebrity stylist, who announced his retirement on March 14, addressed the viral video of himself and Zendaya at Louis Vuitton’s recent Paris Fashion Week show.
In the video, Zendaya was seen rushing to her front-row seat, while Law, who arrived at the same time, was left standing in the aisle and visibly unsure of where to sit.
The clip prompted fierce debate on social media as dozens of commenters slammed Zendaya for not ‘showing him respect’, with some suggesting that the awkward moment was the catalyst for 44-year-old Roach’s shock resignation.

Explaining how he and Zendaya were late to the show due to traffic, he told The Cut in an interview published March 17 that people were “shuffling us as fast as possible to the seats” upon arrival.
“It was a long walk,” he recalled. “So it was a lot of anxiety, because Zendaya is really respectful and she doesn’t like people to have to wait on her, and so it was just anxiety.”
As he was “used to sitting next” to Zendaya, Law said he became confused when there wasn’t enough space for the two of them there. “So, in my mind, my seat was next to her,” he said. “So when I got there and it wasn’t, you know, it wasn’t a problem, but there was nobody to tell me where my actual seat was.”
Though Zendaya was seen pointing to a seat behind her in the video, Law clarified that she was not motioning for him to sit in the second row. “It was her telling me like, ‘That’s Darnell’s seat,’ which is her assistant,” he explained. “I’m not gonna sit in Darnell’s seat. So then where does he go? And so I was standing there, I was really just kind of confused.” Law Roach explained
