Ryan Lochte Quitting Dancing With Stars


Ryan Lochte does NOT want to quit “Dancing with the Stars,” despite a completely inaccurate webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “false.”

According to RadarOnline, the Olympic swimmer is tired of competing on the show and supposedly trying to sabotage himself. A so-called “source” tells the site Lochte has also been fighting with dance partner Cheryl Burke because “it seems like Ryan is not putting in the same effort that Cheryl is.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “It is almost as if he seems defeated already. Like he’s given up.” The “source” further contends the Olympian has already tried quitting, but Burke talked him out of it.

Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a rep for Lochte, who exclusively assures us the athlete is “working very hard” on the show, and the site’s assertion he wants out of the competition is completely “false.” Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to debunk a phony RadarOnline report about Lochte and “Dancing with the Stars.” We recently busted the webloid for wrongly reporting Lochte demanded a personal security team after protesters rushed the stage during the Season 23 premiere. There was no truth to that tale, and the same goes for the site’s latest one.
