LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- William Levy has become the latest celebrity to suffer a painful injury on Season 14 of “Dancing with the Stars.”
“Just Wanted to let u know that I injured my right ankle pretty bad during rehearsal.. MRI tomorrow. I’ll let u all know .. Love u all,” he Tweeted late Sunday night.
William’s partner, Cheryl Burke, said she’s keeping her fingers crossed everything works out all right.
“Hoping that everything turns out ok with Williams ankle injury,” she Tweeted. “Unfortunately things like this happens but praying it’s nothing serious.”
The Latin hunk joins Maria Menounos, who hurt her ribs and last week danced on a stress fracture in her foot. Melissa Gilbert also suffered whiplash and hit her head while dancing with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy last week.
A rep for the show had no information on William’s condition, and it wasn’t clear if he would hit the ballroom on Monday evening.
In the past, when a contestant was too injured to dance, they showed footage of a dress rehearsal. In the case of Misty May Treanor, she had to drop out of the Season 7 competition after suffering an injury to her Achilles that prevented her from carrying on.
