You loved him as Urkel on "Family Matters" . . . and now, the ladies love him even more on "Dancing With the Stars". But does JALEEL WHITE have a dark side?
--A woman named Bridget Hardy has a 2-year-old daughter named Samaya with Jaleel . . . and she told some tales to the "Star"tabloid. The long and the short of it is that he's an ABUSIVE CHEATER.
--Bridget says that in May of 2010, she found evidence on Jaleel's phone that he was cheating. And instead of apologizing, he BLEW UP.
--She says, quote, "He hit me across the chest area . . . He pushed me into the toilet, and it broke. Water went everywhere, through the walls and even to the kitchen downstairs."
--She adds, quote, "Verbally and emotionally, he's abusive. He told me I'm not working; I have no money; I'm white trash. None of it was true."
--Bridget says Jaleel cheated numerous times. Once he hooked up in their home . . . and once he had an affair within a week after their daughter was born.
--Jaleel didn't even want anyone to know Bridget was pregnant, because he wanted to protect his, quote, "Playboy image". For instance, he didn't take her to MICHAEL JACKSON'S funeral because she was seven months along.
--As the relationship was nearing its end, Bridget says Jaleel texted her and offered her $200,000 to leave the baby with him and get out of his life.
--She says, quote, "He basically tried to pay me off. I went home screaming and said, 'We're done.'"
--Even though she dropped the dime on him BIG TIME, Bridget has good things to say about Jaleel, too . . . quote, "He loves [Samaya] to death and is a good financial provider . . . We still love each other, but we had a toxic chemistry."
