Dancing With the Stars professional dancer Cheryl Burke opens up about past relationships.

In a new episode of “Conversation at the Red TableBurke, who aired on Facebook Watch on Nov. 2, 2022, claimed an ex-boyfriend abused her in front of his parents when they were in high school.

“Not to be too graphic, but in high school — I’ll never forget that — the person I was dating belt-whipped me,” Burke shared in a clip of the interview.

She adds in the clip that she had “bruises on my legs” and his parents, who were said to be in the same room, did nothing to help her.

“I remember his parents watching and not doing anything,” Burke said in the clip.


Burke has been candid about past relationships in previous videos

Burke has previously spoken about past abusive relationships in a long YouTube video.

“I want to share my experience with all of you because I hope that in turn, knowing that there is hope on the other side could help anyone who has experienced something similar,” Burke said.

She spoke of allegedly being hit with a belt after her boyfriend hit her car.

“So I pulled over and he came into my car and took off his belt and whipped me with it,” she claimed in the video. She added that his parents were watching and doing nothing about it.

They were together during Burke’s senior year, she said. When she went to New York to dance, she claims he followed her there too, and she said she saw him everywhere, even though they stopped speaking.

“This whole thing was such a bad, toxic cycle,” she said in the video. “And I would really be affected by anything on such a deep level.”

This wasn’t Burke’s first toxic relationship, she told viewers of the video.

She shared that when she was a freshman, she started dating a senior in high school. She said he fit all the “bad boy” tropes she was looking for and that he already had a baby.

“I remember sneaking around with him … and he had sex with me after telling him I didn’t want that and it ended up being pretty violent,” Burke claimed in the video.


The professional dancer divorced in early 2022

Burke and now-ex-husband Matthew Lawrence met in 2007 and dated for a year before splitting. The two then got back together and reconciled in 2017. The two got engaged in 2018 before marrying in May 2019.

According to documents, Burke filed for divorce in February 2022 after nearly three years of marriage obtained from Us Weekly back then.

The pair are due to face custody in January 2023 over custody of their dog, a Frenchie bulldog named Ysabella.

During the September 19 episode of her podcast, “Burke in the game‘ Burke shared an update on the situation.

“I know some of you have read some of the recent headlines about my divorce and the pending thing that is very true and absolutely true, which is my dog ​​Ysabella. For those of you who follow me, you know that I’m a dog mom. I love my French girl Ysabella,” Burke said.

She added that the update was “just devastating.”
