On Sunday, Lindsey Stirling was practicing with Dancing with the Stars pro partner Mark Ballas when she was badly hurt.
According to TMZ via DWTS sources, the YouTube star was rushed to the hospital after suffering “a blunt rib injury”. This mishap occurred when the pair allegedly implemented a quick dance move during rehearsal the day before the ABC competition was set to resume.
This leading contestant, who partnered with Mark Ballas last week for an Argentine tango that earned the pair a perfect score, may need to give up her spot on the TV talent show. Unfortunately, the accomplished violinist is said to be in great pain because of the accident.
Sadly, tonight was the night when Lindsey and Mark were slated to perform a Paso Doblé accompanied by this talented competitor’s dramatic song, Roundtable Rival as reported by SoapHub.
Yesterday, Mark accompanied his sobbing DWTS charge to the hospital where she was comforted by her mentor as much as possible. Still, Ballas told Lindsey she would be “forced to forfeit” if the doctors decided this is for the best as far as Stirling’s health is concerned.
This unhappy Dancing with the Stars injury story is still unfolding so stay tuned–and stay optimistic.
