Us Weekly quotes an “insider” as saying the actor initially “flipped out” after accidentally stepping on Johnson’s foot, and that when Johnson indicated she was in pain, it triggered a tirade from White.
According to the outlet’s source, White chewed out Johnson for “acting like a baby” and began yelling at her, calling her an “idiot.”
Fellow competitor Donald Driver reportedly tried to calm down White (to no avail) before dancer Mark Ballas allegedly confronted White, with tension escalating until, the Us source says, “producers stepped in and broke it up before it got physical.”
White was reportedly sent home from the studio for the rest of the day.
