Professional ballroom dancer Mark Ballas, more commonly known for his stint in “Dancing With The Stars” said that the meltdown story of actor Jaleel White during a rehearsal session last week is nothing but BS.
Previous reports said that 35-year-old White had a rough few weeks – after his baby mama accused him of domestic violence, subsequently followed by news of Jaleel White having a “heated exchange” with his “Dancing with the Stars” partner, Kym Johnson.
According to some media outlets, Jaleel White “erupted into a tirade” on Kym Johnson, his pro dancing partner. The outburst allegedly stemmed from him stepping on her foot during a rehearsal, in which she purportedly overreacted to the pain. A source claims that “Jaleel definitely was out of line. It basically didn’t have anything to do with Kym or her foot – he was just stressed out and ready to snap.”
On the contrary, Jaleel White is claiming that the feud rumors between him and Kym Johnson are “completely exaggerated,” adding “We go to work every day, and there is an alley full of tabloid reporters. It’s not fair to us and that’s life, and I hope people can see through it. There’s no drama in my life.”
Despite reports claiming that pro dancer Mark Ballas got involved in White’s tirade with Kym Johnson, Ballas is calling White’s meltdown a “fabrication.” “We’re in L.A. man,” Ballas said. “Everything’s fabricated.”
Kym Johnson, the pro partner of Jaleel White said after Monday night’s show that “This has been a stressful week for us, and people have stressful weeks. Today was horrible. I thought we got through it really well, and our dance tonight will show everyone that we really have a great connection.”
The pair’s rumba performance on “Dancing with the Stars” earned Jaleel White and Kym Johnson a 25 out of 30 score. “This is a competition and people have to understand that the tabloids, sadly, like to have fun with this show,” White told Access Hollywood after their performance. “But, these are real lives…Kym and I are fine.”

Actor Jaleel White has finally aired his side about the abuse allegations that his baby mama, Bridget Hardy, is throwing at him.
In an interview with E! News, the “Dancing With The Stars” contender opened up about the accusations Bridget Hardy is claiming.
“The allegations made against me back in 2010 have suspiciously resurfaced in time to coincide with my new show on Syfy and Dancing With the Stars; Bridget Hardy has consistently shown a knack for timing throughout our child custody disputes,” Jaleel White said.
He added, “When you’re doing well in life it’s par for the course certain individuals will try and knock you down. When the individual is also the mother of your only child it is particularly hurtful. I have co-parented in peace and compliance with the law for over two years now.”
The 35-year-old “Boston Legal” star went on to discuss the relationship he’s had with Bridget Hardy – whom he hasn’t seen physically in almost six months and only contacts through emails – thus far and why Jaleel White felt it took a turn for the worse.
Jaleel White says his primary concern is their daughter.
“My only hope is that when my daughter Googles her parents one day in her future, she sees that her father acted with class and dignity when pressed to the fire,” he concludes.
