Dancing With The Stars’ Chad Ochocinco is finally setting the record straight about his relationship with his dancing partner Cheryl Burke says “she is keeping me at bay,” RadarOnline.com has learned.
The top four finalist in the hit dancing show admits to KIIS-FM’s Ryan Seacrest that he tried to date his single partner. “Who wouldn’t?” he asks. But he says “she had two stop signs up—they both hit me.”
But The Cincinnati Bengal has shown his appreciation to her in the form of diamonds. Although he begrudgingly admits they are “buddies,” he gave her a diamond necklace for her birthday and a diamond ring to thank Cheryl for all her hard work.
Cheryl admits the couple sizzles on screen. She says “You have to have good chemistry or you’re not going to go anywhere.”
And, the superstar athlete revealed one of the reasons Cheryl put up a stop sign. He’s doing a dating-reality show for VH1 where he will date 85 women. Asked if he would date African-American or white women, Chad responded “I’m color blind.”
Chad also dispelled rumors that he dated Kim Kardashian, saying that her ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush is a good friend.
And, the flashy performer is now in a race to get 1 million followers before Dancing With The Stars airs Monday night. He says he will give the one millionth follower $10,000.
