Playing Jaleel White's Ex Continues Bitter War of Words

Jaleel White's ex and mother of his child, Bridget Hardy, recently spoke to a tabloid magazine, claiming that the Dancing with the Stars contestant physically abused her when they were together. Now Hardy sits down with ET's Chris Jacobs explicitly illustrating how she claims White assaulted her.

"It was as hard as he could've hit me," says Hardy, who claims that White once pushed her so hard that she fell into a toilet and broke it with her back. According to Hardy, that brought their argument to a standstill.

"At that point we stopped and we were like, 'Wow, this is really getting out of control.' Nothing like that's ever happened before," says Hardy, who admits that she sustained no bruising from the incident.

In a recent interview, White told Nancy O'Dell that there was "zero" physical abuse during the relationship and speculated that Hardy only came forth now due to his high visibility on the hit ABC dancing competition. He also pointed out that no charges were ever filed after Hardy first made the allegations in 2010.
