Zendaya Reveals Her Dog Has Cancer on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ (VIDEO)

By  | 

She may be the youngest celebrity to ever compete on Dancing with the Stars, but Zendaya Coleman‘s going to win this year. At least, according to Jimmy Kimmel. During the Shake It Up! actress’ appearance on his talk show, Jimmy says he put down money that she would take home the Season 16 trophy. However, since she came out so strong in the first few episodes, he said that it would be great if something terrible could happen, like losing a pet, to gain the sympathy votes. What he didn’t expect was her big reveal…

Zendaya responds, “My dog actually has cancer, so…” One would normally be taken aback by the news, and offer ‘hope he/she gets better’ wishes. Jimmy, on the other hand: “Your dog has cancer? Oh my dog, this is great. Why have you not mentioned this on the show?… Your dog has cancer, I couldn’t have written it better myself.” See it in context above!
