She may be a talented actress, singer, and dancer, but when it comes to chaffing it up in the kitchen, Zendaya may be lacking some skill. And she is well aware of that, especially after a kitchen accident led the Hollywood star to the hospital to get stitches! Here's what went down.

The Euphoria actress shared the ordeal with her Instagram followers by posting a picture of a bloody finger that was wrapped in gauze and a bandage. "See now...this is why I don't cook," she teased. Of course, this sled to fans wondering what could have happened? Luckily she kept them updated. And shortly after she shared another snap of a doctor stitching up her finger, "Update" she wrote on the story. While we still don't know what exactly Zendaya was trying to make when the accident happen, we do know that she probably won't be attempting that recipe again anytime soon. "Baby's first stitches LOL back to never cooking again," she added next to a third photo alongside her assistant Darnell Appling.

Appling also shared his side of the funny story on his Instagram "Never a dull moment with @zendaya no pun intended," he hilariously wrote. "Dear God, help me keep this little heffa safe cause she clumsy as h*ll." Apparently, this was not the first-time Zendaya had an incident in the kitchen. Last December, her 25-year-old boyfriend, Tom Holland revealed, "Zendaya, every time she cooks, she comes millimeters from not chopping her fingers off, or her hand off." We guess it's true, you can be good at everything! Thankfully though, she has many other things to focus on.

Last week Zendaya was nominated for not one, not two, but three Emmys for her work on HBO hit series Euphoria. She is up for the award of Outstanding Lead Actress and she also got two nods for Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics for her help in writing both "Elliot's Song" and I'm Tired. Just two years ago the actress received he first Emmy for her performance as Rue Bennett in the drama series. This achievement made her the youngest star to win the best actress in a drama series. We cant wait to see if she snatches up anymore Emmys. Stay tuned for updates.
