Zendaya has weighed in after a TikTok prank that claimed she was pregnant went viral.

The video, which appears to have popped up earlier this week, featured a fake sonogram photo that was photoshopped to look as if the 25-year-old actress had posted it herself.

But the Euphoria star took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to set the story straight, complaining that people are ‘just making stuff up for no reason.’

The original TikTok videos were part of a prank called getting ‘Krissed.’

The clips opened with an image of a fake sonogram image showing a fetus, with Zendaya’s profile image photoshopped in to make it look as if she had posted the picture. 

‘I love you. Halfway there,’ read the fake caption that was meant to look as if the actress had written it.

A fake comment with heart emojis from Marisa Tomei was even added to make the image look more real. 

Bad timing: 'See now, this is why I stay off Twitter...' she wrote. Although TikTok users understood the pregnancy post to be a prank, it apparently fooled Twitter users after migrating platforms

But the end of the video cut to a clip of Kris Jenner dancing in a green sequined top, which was soundtracked to a sped-up version of Lady Marmalade.

‘You just got Krissed! Send this to your friends to #Kris them!!’ the video text read, but some users who saw the clip didn’t understand that it was a joke, especially after it started popping up on Twitter, where the format apparently wasn’t as common.

The prank has been previously to briefly fool viewers into believing a hoax, only to reveal that it was false at the end.
