"Early Tuesday morning, there was a trespasser who attempted to break into our home. The LAPD responded and my family and I are all ok," he told Inside Edition.
His dancing partner, former Glee star Heather Morris, was left to explain what happened after he was a no-show for his interview with Good Morning America following their dismissal from the show Monday night.
"They had some sort of run-in with some man near their house trying to break in," she said. "The police were there. They took care of it."
He reportedly called 911 at 2 a.m. to report a trespasser at his home, but the story then takes a mysterious turn. The LAPD couldn't find the trespasser. Since no criminal report was filed, they are calling it a civil dispute.
The scare comes three months after the couple had a baby boy named Shai.
