An exhausted looking Jaleel White spoke about his alleged bust-up with dancing partner Kym Johnson following the couple's solid rumba performance earlier this week. Reports had suggested the Family Matters star had lost his temper with Johnson when she yelled "Ouch" after he had stepped on her foot during rehearsals.
Professional dancer Mark Ballas and the show's producers were understood to have intervened and White did not deny the incident had taken place while speaking to Access Hollywood, saying, "This is a competition and people have to understand that the tabloids, sadly, like to have fun with this show.But, these are real lives. Kym and I are fine". Kym echoed White's sentiments, saying, "It has been a stressful week for us and we've gotten through it and we've never let anything come between our connection", before Jaleel added, "I'm done with that. I got to celebrate tonight. We're still at the top of the leaderboard really". The duo certainly showed no signs of unrest when dancing to a score of 25 out of 30 for their rumba, securing their place on next week's show.
