Jaleel White tossed from 'Dancing With the Stars' studio after yelling at Kym Johnson
Onetime Steve Urkel actor Jaleel White has been trying to downplay allegations of domestic abuse, but his reputation is taking a blow with word that he "flipped out" on pro partner Kym Johnson on the set of Dancing With the Stars and was kicked out of the studio by producers. We hope his baby mama Bridget Hardy's attorney doesn't hear about this.
The 35-year-old accidentally stepped on Johnson's foot last Friday, Us Weekly says, so she let out a yelp. White then allegedly let out his own yelp, yelling at Kym for "acting like a baby," a source says. "He was shouting at her, calling her an idiot." Donald Driver "tried to calm him down," the source said, but Jaleel "started going off on the producers and shouting about how they put him with a stupid partner."
Kym's fellow pro Mark Ballas tried to get in the mix, but White allegedly shouted at Mark, "You remind me of that annoying sitcom neighbor who gets in everyone's business." Sounds like someone doesn't have both feet standing in reality.
"The producers stepped in and broke it up before it got physical, but they were really going at it -- right up in each other's faces," the source continued, saying White was then banished from the studio for the rest of the day. "Now he says he refuses to go back to the rehearsal studio again, that he wants his own rehearsal space elsewhere. It was a huge fiasco that went down. A total mess."
Of course, it could all be a moot point after this week. We all know William Levy is going to win it all anyway.
