The Leaderboard-topping duo had a bit of a mishap while preparing for Season 16, Week 7, and the ABC Instagram posted this pic of the 16-year-old Disney starlet “elbowing” her partner in the eye. Though we’re not sure if this is exactly how it happened, looking at the corner of Val’s eye all bruised, black and blue, it is about the size of an elbow. Zendaya’s notoriously long limbs could have easily come in contact with his face...
However, with the smile on his face, we’re sure that he quickly forgave and forgot, plus, he wouldn't let a little thing like a black eye stop them from rehearsing — especially since immunity is up for grabs this week!
Do you think Zendaya gave Val the black eye, or did he just fall and hurt himself? Sound off below, and feel free to leave your well wishes for the pro in the comments!
