The former "Family Matters" star was accused of going off on a tirade against professional partner, Kym Johnson, after he accidently stepped on her food during Friday's rehearsals.

According to Us Weekly, White "got in her face" after she screamed "ouch." But, White told People that the reports are "completely exaggerated" and Ballas seems to agree.

Ballas told TMZ that the whole thing is a "fabrication," adding, "we're in L.A. man...everything's fabricated."
