In her new memoir soccer star Hope Solo accuses her Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of being too rough with her during rehearsals.
The Olympian, 31, wrote in "Solo: A Memoir of Hope," that the professional dancer "manhandled" her and once slapped her across the face during her time on the show last fall. "He manhandled me in rehearsals from the start, pushing me, whacking my stomach, bending my arms roughly. I thought that was just how it went - how dancers worked with each other.
I was tough. I could take it," Solo said in the book, according to USA Today. "But it kept getting worse," she continued. "One day, Maks was trying to put me in a certain position and hit my stomach so hard with his open palm that I had a red handprint there for the rest of the day."
During a rehearsal for the Halloween-themed episode, she wrote, Chmerkovskiy was got so angry with her that he slapped her.
