The 5 Biggest ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Feuds Ever

One of our favorite parts of Dancing With the Stars is seeing the sweet partnerships that develop between the celebs and their pros — except sometimes, these relationships turn sour.

Recently, pro Cheryl Burke revealed she hated Season 4 partner Ian Ziering so much, she wanted to "slit [her] wrists" while working with the 90210 actor.

While the dancer has since apologized for seemingly making light of suicide, she didn't retract her hatred of her ex-partner at all, which just proves how much she disliked working with him.

Unfortunately, she isn't the only dancer whose partner who made her wish she could just be eliminated, ASAP.

Here are the four other partnership feuds — that we know of! — that most rival what went down with Cheryl and Ian Ziering:

Jaleel White and Kym Johnson, Season 14

KYM JOHNSON, JALEEL WHITE

This pair's troubles never made it onscreen, but there were reports of a very heated fight between the partners that all started with Jaleel accidently stepping on Kym's foot, and somehow spiraled into Jaleel calling her an idiot and the pro leaving the rehearsal in tears.

It's worth noting they later commented on the rumors, admitting they had a "stressful week" but claiming it wasn't as big a deal as the reports made it out to be.

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Season 13

MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY, HOPE SOLO

Maks had long said Hope was his dream partner, but when he finally got his wish, it turned out the champion soccer player was a bit of a nightmare.

The pair made it to fourth place, but they butted heads the whole time, as we saw in their video packages.

But it was really after the season was over that the claws came out, with Hope accusing her pro partner of slapping her, and Maks calling her the only person he has ever disliked.

Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani, Season 10

The most famously contentious pair of all, this reality TV mom pushed even the ultra-patient

Tony over the edge after she questioned his teaching methods. In fact, it got so bad, he walked out on her during one particularly bad rehearsal, declaring, "I quit!"

Maybe the saddest example of all, Maks and Kirstie Alley actually got along really well when they were partners, both on Season 12 and during All Stars.

However, their friendship completely blew up, for reasons most assume have to do with the Cheers star's connection to the Church of Scientology, because it happened soon after Maks befriended famous ex- Scientologist Leah Remini.

As Maks once put it, "We had a great relationship. I thought we had a great relationship. If it was something else, or not, I don't know, but I got a message that now I'm associating with other people that she can't be associated with. I am no longer to be spoken with."

It just goes to show — feuds can start at any time!

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
