No one has had a rougher ride on Dancing With the Stars this season than Jaleel White. The 35-year-old actor, who has loads of natural ability, nevertheless seems to have been dancing under a dark cloud since Week 2.

Our top moments of the week:

In a recent interview with Star magazine, White's ex Bridget Hardy claimed the actor verbally and physically abused her. "He pushed me into the toilet, and it broke," Hardy told the magazine.

White, who's best known for playing nerdy Steve Urkel on Family Matters and is currently a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, said the claims stem from child-custody battle the actor thought had been resolved. (The pair have an 11-month-old daughter.) White suggests that Hardy is trying to capitalize on his recent return to the spotlight.
