Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast member William Levy may not be putting on his dancing shoes this week. During a rehearsal for his performance on Monday with partner Cheryl Burke, William Levy injured his ankle and it could possibly pull him out of the competition entirely.
Cuban-American actor William Levy injured his ankle during a rehearsal for this week’s Dancing With the Stars 2012. On the William Levy Twitter feed, the smoking hot Latin celebrity posted Sunday night that the ankle injury could prevent him from performing this week on DWTS 2012.
“Just wanted to let u know that I injured my right ankle pretty bad during rehearsal… MRI tomorrow. I’ll let u know… Love u all,” Levy Tweeted to his fans.
The fan favorite’s professional Dancing With the Stars 2012 partner Cheryl Burke also took to Twitter to express her concern over the William Levy injury. “Hoping that everything turns out ok with William’s ankle injury,” she posted. “Unfortunately things like this happen but praying it’s nothing serious.”
As of this post, reps for William Levy and Dancing with the Stars 2012 have still not confirmed whether or not the Latin heart-throb will be performing on the show this week or if he might be out of the competition for good.
The William Levy injury is the latest in a string of DWTS 2012 cast injuries suffered either during rehearsals or during show performances.
TV personality Maria Menounos previously cracked her ribs and last week danced on a stress fracture in her foot. Actress Melissa Gilbert was diagnosed with whiplash and a mild concussion last week after she was taken to the hospital following a nasty whack on the head during her dance routine with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
If William Levy cannot perform on Dancing With the Stars 2012 Monday night, but is expected to return in the future, the show might air a dress rehearsal performance of him and partner Cheryl Burke for review by the judges and voters. Somewhat ironically, tonight is Latin night on DWTS 2012.
Dancing With the Stars 2012 airs Monday night at 8 pm ET/PT. Join us here for our live recap of the show at it happens!
