Jodie Sweetin Rushed To Hospital After Ankle Injury During “Dancing With The Stars” Rehearsal
Jodie Sweetin was taken to the hospital via ambulance on Thursday, after injuring herself during a “Dancing with the Stars” rehearsal with partner Keo Motsepe.
A rep for Sweetin tells Gossip Cop in a statement, “Earlier today, Jodie Sweetin injured her left foot during rehearsals for ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ She was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and she is awaiting her official diagnosis. She is in good spirits while she waits and Keo, along with her fiancee Justin Hodak, are by her side.”
At this point, it’s too early to know whether Sweetin will be able to take the dance floor this Monday. This setback comes just days after she received her highest score in the competition so far. Ironically, though, that wasn’t achieved with Motsepe.
As Gossip Cop noted, Week 5 of season 22 was the “Switch-Up,” in which all the partners were changed for a single show. Sweetin was paired with Val Chmerkovskiy, who appeared with her on “Fuller House” earlier this year. For their paso doble, there received 35 points out of 40.
That made them the second-highest scoring couple of the night, only behind Nyle DiMarco and Sharna Burgess. Following the episode, though, it was back to business as normal with every contestant re-joining his or her original partner. Neither Sweetin nor Motsepe has mentioned the injury situation on social media as of yet, though he did post a ‘throwback Thursday’ photo with Burgess not long before the news broke. Gossip Cop will have updates.
