A post shared by Derek Hough derekhough on Sep 22, at 7: Mota is a YouTube sensation turned fashion icon with her own clothing line for Aeropastle, fragrances, and more. Hough is a singer, dancer, and has been showing off his acting skills on the TV show Nashville. The two have grueling schedules, but somehow find the time to kill it on the ballroom floor together.
Read on for all the facts on the dancing duo below. Recently, Hough hurt his back and was nervous about how it might affect his dancing, telling TV Guide: Mota has been dealing with an ankle injury during the season.
When she was 12 years old, friends began to bully her, calling her fat and ugly, which really took a toll on her. Hough suffered from intense bullying as well. Bullying can be physical, verbal or emotional. Words and threats are just as painful as fists, especially with social media these days. They would tie my ankles up with a very rough rope and hang me in a tree upside down, spit on me and call me names, even hold a gun to my head.
Hough then revealed that dancing was his escape, saying: We ended up having to move because it got so bad. It gave me a focus and a motivation. It became my safe place, the place where I could grow and flourish and find those answers. I know now that the worst thing you can do is suffer in silence. Have a look at Hough in the below video, talking about his childhood bullying experiences.
