Julianne Hough’s Abuse Claims Infuriate Ballas Family

January 11, 2013 02:00 PM by Lisa Princ

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.

Wow. What do you think of Julianne Hough’s shocking revelation? Do you believe she was abused by the Ballas family? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear from you! Comment and share your thoughts with us below!

    The problem here is she said he said. If a man takes you in and abuse is her part of him training her to dance, well we all see how hard and demanding that is. Training in anything is hard and can be taking as abusvive. So we all don’t really know then..

    I don’t think she even realize it but she did open up a can of worms.
    So now, I blame her parents for sending her off at 10 years old. thats a crucial time in their life, very vulnerable, need a lot of love, guidance n support. She did mention she needed a lot of love.. where was at least one parent? Their parents deserted both Derek n her. Is fame or money more important?
    And if she was physically abused, who was the villain? That person could b hurting other kids?
    A 10 year old is not mature enough to be thrown into such situations and does not have the emotional, mental or physical maturity to protect themselves if something goes wrong.

    I think she is not lying but I dont think the abuse came directly from the Ballas family. I think that the fact that she was not living with her biological patents has everything to do with this abuse. I have a 15 and a 13 year old and I cannot imagine ANY situation that would make me give up my kids. Not fame, not money, NOTHING!

    one out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys are molested. often the people that are protecting them are responsible or feel a “need” to protect the abuser from fear or loss of income or advantages they have enjoyed. Do not doubt her unless you walked in her tap shoes.

    At one time I really liked this person, but I think now she only wants attention and will hurt anyone to get it. Ryan you better beware you might be next.

    She’s lying to promote her movie. If she was truly abused she would have gone into detail and named names. Shame on her!

    I dont believe one word she says… she could have come out sooner, but as soon as her movie started being promoted, she came out with it. Think, the character in the movie was abused, so Julianne was all of a sudden abused. Just saying. Ive had some unkind words in response to my opinion.
