Is JoJo Fletcher worried Simone Biles will take her spot on “Dancing with the Stars”? That’s claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop investigated, and here’s what we know.

“‘Dancing’ Wannabe JoJo Fears Simone Will Cut In,” reads a headline in the National Enquirer. According to the accompanying story, “JoJo Fletcher isn’t very happy with Simone Biles and the U.S. Olympics gymnastics team. She’s worried the young ladies’ new fame is going to know her off competing on ‘Dancing with the Stars.'”

A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Everyone is trying to get a piece of Simone and the dancing show is no exception. Simone is the number-one get for ‘Dancing with the Stars’ producers, who have already reached out to her people.” But, the supposed snitch goes on, “JoJo desperately wants to be in the ballroom, but has been told that no offer will be made until after they lock in an Olympic star.”

But there’s a fatal flaw in this piece. Biles is NOT doing the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars.” The gymnast has repeatedly said she will be unable to do the fall cycle due to other commitments. That includes the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions, which will prevent her team mates from doing “DWTS,” too.

That’s why when Aly Raisman competed after the 2012 Olympics, she did so during the spring 2013 season. The National Enquirer would have known this if it bothered to do any research. Fletcher may or may not get a spot on season 23, but whether she does or doesn’t will have nothing to do with Biles, so it makes no sense for “The Bachelorette” star to be worried about the Olympian.
