Dancing with the Stars 2 winners Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke are denying a report that they had an affair during the show’s recent tour.
First, Star Magazine reported that “married dad Drew Lachey and his partner Cheryl Burke … had an affair during the show’s nationwide tour which ended last month.” At the time, Cheryl was dating Matthew Lawrence, who she met through his Dancing with the Stars alum brother Joey, and Drew is currently married.
Star cites anonymous “[s]ources [who] say Matthew found his girlfriend cheating when he went to retrieve something from her dressing room as the tour hit Jacksonville, Fla. on January 22, an eight-week-long Star investigation uncovered. They say he ran out screaming after seeing Cheryl and Drew having oral sex. The insiders say that the next day, as tour members prepared to get on the bus to leave town, Drew had to be restrained as he ranted at Matthew and his brother, Joey in the parking lot.”
But Drew’s rep told People that is “completely false and cannot be further from the truth,” and Cheryl’s rep says, “The story that Cheryl is involved with Drew Lachey started two years ago when they were partners on Dancing with the Stars. It wasn’t true then and it isn’t true now.”
