What? Last night Zara and her boyfriend, Brian H. Whittaker, were goofing around on Instagram. So far so normal. However one post in particular shook fans. In it, it looks like Zara and Brian may be having sex due to the angle that it's being filmed at and various sound effects. Zara captioned it: "He never shuts up it's actually incredible".

Not long after Zara posted it, the clip began doing the rounds on social media.

Watch the video here.

Obviously, despite what it may seem like, Zara was not having sex. After catching wind of the backlash, Zara took to Twitter and Instagram this morning to clear things up. She tweeted: "Waaiiittt nooo hahahahaha I cant believe people think I posted a video of me fucking on my story. I was literally fully clothed chilling on the sofa and Brian was pushing on my chest IM INNOCENttt". Now that makes sense.

Zara then added: "This is HILARIOUS but also a bit uncomfortable". Amazing. Seriously, the clip is misleading but there's no way that Zara would actually be getting her freak on in public like that and the fact that people were stating it as fact is a bit messed up. The 'Bad Boys' singer also went on Insta Story to explain and poke fun at the situation. The "and were we?" in tiny text is sending us.

In conclusion, don't assume that 20-year-olds are having sex on social media.

Now if Zara could release a new single, that would be amazing. We miss her.
