Cheryl and Drew Deny Affair
Former dance partners Cheryl Burke and Drew Lachey are coming out swinging, blasting reports that the two had an affair. "I think there should be a new rule: if you are going to call somebody out in a magazine, you should have to put your name on it," Drew told "Extra."
Star magazine claims the two were caught in the act by Cheryl's then-boyfriend, Matthew Lawrence, during the "Dancing with the Stars" tour. But at the William S. Paley Festival in L.A., Cheryl had a different story. "Dancing is a close sport and it's a sensual thing. Rumors, rumors, rumors -- people love that, the tabloids love that, and what can you do? You know you just kind of have to keep living your life."
The reports have co-host Tom Bergeron crying foul, too. "Every season has all kinds of rumors and allegations."
