Following in the footsteps of one of this seasons Dancing With The Stars contestants Jewel, Gilles Marini has also injured himself. He however does not have tendonitis in his knees as she does, it is in his groin!
His rep confirmed that Gilles Marini has been diagnosed with tendonitis in his groin and shoulder. “It’s like you dance with a knife next to your thing,” Gilles Marini, told E! “It keeps stabbing me.”
Gilles Marini said that he first felt pain during rehearsal with his pro partner Cheryl Burke and said, “I felt something, but I say, ‘Lemme just work through it. Today, I am going to [a doctor] to see what’s up and so they can fix me.”
Don’t count Gilles Marini out just yet though, the model turned actor told E! that he will perform no matter what! “If it’s hip replacement I need to do, I will,” he said. “I will recover in 24 hours so I can dance with Cheryl. It will happen!”
