Julianne Hough revealed recently that she suffered from both emotional and physical abuse as a child, while she lived in London. So why is the family of Dancing with the Stars pro, Mark Ballas infuriated over the claims? Details inside.
Julianne Hough recently told Cosmopolitan Magazine: “While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything,” but declined to go into too much detail, adding: “I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody. What’s past is past.” However, she has hurt someone – the Ballas family, who Hough resided with during that time.
A source told Star Magazine recently: “Mark’s father Corky and his ex-wife Shirley are livid with Julianne over suggestions that she was abused in the U.K. under their care. At Corky’s own expense, he took Julianne into his home and turned her into a world-class dancer. Now, he feels like he has been ambushed.”
Rumor has it that Julianne interpreted Corky’s encouragement as abuse, as the insider added: “At the end of her time in London, they were barely speaking. One thing’s for sure – she really opened a can of worms.” According to the source, the families are both up in arms now over the claims, and while Hough stated she did not want to hurt anyone, it appears that she has anyway.
