Cheryl Burke Says Matthew Lawrence Was Her First Partner Who Wasn’t “Abusive”

Cheryl Burke reminisces on the tough path that brought her to finding true love with husband Matthew Lawrence

The dancing with the stars pro shared a powerful video to YouTube on Friday, Dec. 11 titled “My Experience with Abusive Relationships.” In the video, shown below, Cheryl provided her with a glimpse and look back on the series of abusive relationships that she endured in her younger years.

“Even after I graduated high school and into my professional dancing career, I was still into those types of bad-boy relationships, and I continued on the pattern of dating abusive men,” she said. “I also was abusing myself by drinking too much and just really had no respect for myself, which I’ll be talking more about as well in future videos.”

It wasn’t until she started dating eventual husband Matthew in 2007 that she allowed a healthy partner into her life, even if she wasn’t yet ready to fully embrace their connection.
