Jaleel White Kym Johnson.jpgBallroom dancing is considered to be an art of refinement. “Dancing With the Stars” just got a little less refined today as reports surfaced about contestant Jaleel White getting into a fight with some of the pros.

According to Us Weekly, White and partner Kym Johnson had a “heated” fight during rehearsal on Friday (Mar. 30). An insider tells the site that White stepped on Johnson’s foot. When Johnson said “ouch,” he reportedly “got in her face” and told her she was “acting like a baby … he was shouting at her, calling her and ‘idiot.'”

Johnson started crying and left, while fellow contestant Donald Driver “tried to calm him down.” White apparently “started going off on the producers and shouting about how they put him with a ‘stupid’ partner.”

Pro dancer Mark Ballas tried to help, but White said, “‘You remind me of that annoying sitcom neighbor who gets into everyone’s business!'”

“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!”

We’ve reached out to ABC for comment, and have yet to receive a response.
