“Dancing with the Stars” star Alexis Ren is secretly suffering from a rib injury that affected her live performance during Monday night’s show.
According to our sources, Ren was practicing last week for the Halloween-themed episode with her partner, Alan Bersten, when she injured her ribs.
We’re told she was taken to a local urgent care and was examined by a doctor but was determined to fight through the pain and continue preparing for Monday night’s show.
Alexis Ren and Bersten performed “Candyman” by Christina Aguilera and despite her injury — which was not revealed on the show — scored a 27 out of 30 from the judges.
The Sports Illustrated model will find next week if she continues on with the competition during Country Night.
