'DWTS' Star Derek Hough Hospitalized! All the Details
Poor Derek Hough was rushed to the emergency room on Monday night just hours after performing on “Dancing with the Stars.”
A source tells E! News that Derek suffered a broken toe, severely sprained ankle and possible ligament damage. An MRI is scheduled for Tuesday.
ABC has confirmed that Hough was injured while rehearsing for the “DWTS” 10th anniversary special.
Fellow dancer Mark Ballas, his girlfriend Britney Jean Carlson and father Corky Ballas escorted Derek to the hospital.
Derek and Mark both shared – and later removed -- pics of the injuries on Instagram, including one of Derek in a wheelchair.
Mark's caption said, "Long night in the ER with @derekhough nothing worse than seeing a fellow dancer get hurt especially your brother. But he had me @bcjean & @corkyballas there by his side. #fam."
Hough wrote, "Just getting home from the hospital. Not the best of news. I'm in utter disbelief."
No word yet on whether the injury will sideline Derek for the rest of the “DWTS” season and the anniversary special, as well as his current role as the male lead in the “New York Spring Spectacular” at Radio City Music Hall in NYC.
