UPDATED 3/15, 7 p.m. ET: Law Roach insists there is no bad blood between him and Zendaya.

Swiftly after announcing his retirement from the fashion industry, the 44-year-old self-described image architect made it clear his relationship with Zendaya is still strong. 

“So y’all really think I’m breaking up with Z…..we are forever!” Roach wrote. “She’s my little sister and it’s real love not the fake industry love.”

So y’all really think I’m breaking up with Z….. we are forever!

She’s my little sister and it’s real love not the fake industry love.

Though Law didn’t indicate his return to styling, his posts led some to believe he’ll continue working with the Euphoria star in some capacity. 

@LUXURYLAW You ain’t even have to clear this up but the sigh of relief I let out reading it? Real one.

@LUXURYLAW He saw people harassing Z and was like

@LUXURYLAW omfg THE VALIDATION we all needed. we love y’all together sfm i knew it was family over everything ♥️ that’s all i needed to know!!

Roach also posted a GIF from the 1985 film The Color Purple, which showed sisters Celie and Nettie playing a handclap game. “Literally me and Zendaya….” he tweeted.

Law Roach seems to be done with the fashion industry.

The celebrity stylist took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce his retirement.

“My Cup is empty….. thank you to everyone who’ve supported me and my career over the years. Every person that trusted me with their image, I’m so grateful for you all,” he wrote.

He continued, “If this business was just about the 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.”

It’s unclear what false narratives the 44-year-old is speaking about.

According to Page Six, it looks like this announcement might have stemmed from feeling slighted at the recent Louis Vuitton fashion show. After walking in with Zendaya, Roach expected to be seated next to her in the front row, but it appears there was no spot available for him. A video of the incident showed Zendaya looking around and pointing to an open seat behind her, which seemingly perturbed Roach.

@PopCrave I hope it’s not because of this situation 😭

In addition to styling Zendaya, Roach has also worked with Megan Thee Stallion, Hunter Schafer, Kerry Washington, Celine Dion, Ariana Grande, Priyanka Chopra, and Lindsay Lohan, among others.
