It appears the cut was so deep that Zendaya needed stitches as she posted another photo of what appeared to be a medical professional stitching her finger in a doctor's office.

Thankfully the injury wasn't serious and Zendaya was soon back home and smiling as she updated her fans by sharing a photo of her giggling while pointing her finger in the air.
