LOS ANGELES— Ryan Lochte says he feels “a little hurt” after being involved in an incident on “Dancing with the Stars” that prompted producers to cut to a commercial.
The beleaguered swimmer was apparently rushed by unknown people while receiving his scores from Judge Carrie Ann Inaba on Monday’s live installment of the celebrity ballroom dance competition.
“Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron said the show was interrupted by “a little incident” and thanked the ABC series’ security team.
The swimmer told Bergeron that “so many feelings are going through my head right now — a little hurt, but I came out here. I wanted to do something I’m completely not comfortable with, and I did.”
ABC did not immediately return messages seeking comment about the incident.
