Dancing With The Stars Jaleel White Breaks Silence Over Abuse Claims

Dancing with the Stars contestant Jaleel White is setting the record straight against abuse allegations made by his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Bridget Hardy.

“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,” said White in a released statement to several media outlets.

Hardy claimed the abuse Jaleel pushed her so hard into the toilet that it broke. But the former child star continues to take the high road.

“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.”

“Bridget Hardy is the mother of my only daughter in this world and without Ms. Hardy I would not have the treasure that is my daughter. God knows the truth. … I ask for your sensitivity during this time, I can assure all of my fans this is only residue from a child custody matter.”

Hopefully this matter will be resolved soon.
