The mother of his child is coming out with what she alleges to be the truth about the man. She told the press he used to beat her and cheat on her.
Bridget Hardy, who hasn’t been very public about anything the two had or what they have together, told Star magazine that he’s got a different and very ugly side.
“He blew up,” she told Star about a fight the couple had after she confronted Jaleel over evidence of cheating she says she found on his phone in May 25, 2010. “He hit me across the chest area,” she said.
But it doesn’t stop there.
“He pushed me into the toilet, and it broke. Water went everywhere, through the walls and even to the kitchen downstairs,” she says.
On top of all that, she claims he was verbally and emotionally abusive and called her white trash. She also said he offered her $200,000 to leave their daughter with him while she starts her own family.
But she also admitted White tried to cover up their pregnancy to protect his image. He wasn’t ready to be in a committed relationship Hardy explained.
The actor has responded to the allegations, which he claims are “hurtful” lies stemming from a “malicious police report” filed in connection with a bitter child custody dispute.
He says, “When you’re doing well in life, it’s par for the course certain individuals will try and knock you down. When the individual is also the mother of your only child it is particularly hurtful…
“The allegations made against me back in 2010 have suspiciously resurfaced in time to coincide with my new show on Syfy and ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ Bridget Hardy has consistently shown a knack for timing throughout our child custody disputes.”
White is hoping to resolve the matter for the sake of his little girl, adding, “My only hope is that when my daughter Googles her parents one day in her future, she sees that her father acted with class and dignity when pressed to the fire.
“Bridget Hardy is the mother of my only daughter in this world and without Ms. Hardy I would not have the treasure that is my daughter… I can assure all of my fans this is only residue from a child custody matter.”
