Julianne Hough's recent revelations of abuse have started the dance world's version of the Hatfields and the McCoys, according to a new Star report.

The Rock of Ages star's claims that she was abused -- "mentally, physically, everything" -- during her time living in London as a teenager has ranked the family of her former Dancing with the Stars colleague Mark Ballas, who she lived with during the troubled timeframe.

Mark's father Corky and his ex-wife Shirley "are livid with Julianne over suggestions that she was abused in the U.K. under their care,” a source close to the Ballas family told Star. “At Corky’s own expense, he took Julianne into his home and turned her into a world-class dancer.

"Now, he feels like he has been ambushed."

The Footloose beauty, a source said, interpreted Corky's encouragement as abuse, and wound up leaving England prematurely.

“At the end of her time in London, they were barely speaking," the source said. "One thing’s for sure -- she really opened a can of worms.

"The Ballas family and the Houghs are up in arms.”

The full story is in the new issue of Star, on newsstands Thursday.
