Dancing With the Stars 2012: Jaleel White Says Tabloid Rumors Nothing New

In addition to the rumors going around that Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast member Jaleel White recently had a nasty fight with his dance partner Kym Johnson, there are also tabloid reports that the former child star was even more of a ‘Jerkel’ to his ex-girlfriend and baby momma.

Bridget Hardy, Jaleel White’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, recently revealed in a tabloid interview that the Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast member allegedly abused her verbally and physically. Hardy told Star magazine that  during their relationship, White had hit her, once pushed her into a toilet (which allegedly broke and flooded everywhere) and verbally abused her regularly.

“Verbally and emotionally, he’s abusive. He told me I’m not working; I have no money; I’m white trash. None of it was true,” Hardy said in the tabloid interview. White’s ex also claims she found photos of naked women on his phone and claims he cheated on her, including a hook-up with a woman “within one week of me having the baby.”

According to Jaleel White, however, the accusations by Bridget Hardy against him for domestic violence are not true and are old news. “These aren’t any allegations that are new,” White said in an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday. White says his ex is just trying to cash in on his rebooted fame in the public spotlight due to his gig on Dancing With the Stars 2012.

“There was no verbal abuse. Couples argue, that’s normal. I’m not going to pretend like we didn’t have any arguments, obviously we broke up… But to say verbal abuse, and to come out with that during Dancing with the Stars … It was an attack on my joy.”

“I went through a child custody situation in 2010 and, wildly, I end up on Dancing With the Stars, and the ex I’ve been co-parenting with, for two years, in peace, decides that she wants to go have a conversation with Star magazine.”

“It sucks,” White said. “I gotta, you know, have a Perez Hilton comment on me every week now, but it’s par for the course.”

“I’m basically like, I got this huge microscope on me right now and that’s a good thing for career purposes,” White said. “But, unfortunately, it brings out, it brings out bad things, you know.”

  1. I believe Jaleel is a liar, I believe he abused his girlfriend. He looks like he needs to go to anger management.

  2. Both of you don’t know sh*t! You don’t know the truth so shut your fu**ing mouth and stop making comments about sh*t you don’t know about!!!

  3. I believe Jaleel didn’t even touch her. Like he said ” “I went through a child custody situation in 2010 and, wildly, I end up onDancing With the Stars, and the ex I’ve been co-parenting with, for two years, in peace, decides that she wants to go have a conversation with Star magazine.” I to find it kinda funny that she would go talk to a magazine rep. as soon as he starts getting back into the limelight. Also its about things that the public never even heard about till now! This woman is looking for money and if you ask me she never loved Jaleel. so for all you people who don’t know the whole story and wanna take up for the so “heart ached” victim here get the whole story first and don’t just speculate.

  4. I met him years ago in the valley area of L.A. and was a big fan of his. He was rude & insulting, handsy (sexually agressive), and he was not taking no from another woman near us and grabbing and holding onto her against her wishes (hurting her) until others insisted he stop. He got very angry then and stormed off with his buddies. I was crushed because before that I thought he had to be a great guy because of what I had heard of him on tv.
