Jesse Metcalfe is fighting back.
The “Desperate Housewives” star issued a fiery response after Sharna Burgess described him as her worst “Dancing With the Stars” partner.
“If she is referring to a time where our client Jesse Metcalfe worked with Ms. Burgess four years ago, the only recollection was that they didn’t get along,” Metcalfe’s rep told TVLine Tuesday, confirming the feud.
“Vague insinuations are not only reckless but also irrelevant,” the actor’s publicist added.
Burgess, 38, dropped the bombshell in the debut episode of her podcast, “Oldish,” earlier Tuesday.
While the professional dancer did not mention Metcalfe, 44, by name, she recalled having “a partner that was really difficult” to work with when she returned to the ABC competition series in 2020 after a two-year break.
“I wasn’t able to be in the room alone with him after the first couple of weeks because of things that happened,” she claimed. “And so that was rocky, and we were eliminated very quickly.”
Burgess — who won the Season 27 mirrorball trophy with radio host Bobby Bones — and the “John Tucker Must Die” star finished in 12th place on Season 29 as the fourth couple to be sent home.

Reps for “Dancing With the Stars” did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for additional comment.
Despite her allegedly negative experience with Metcalfe, the Australian choreographer came back to the show in 2021 and was partnered with her now-boyfriend, Brian Austin Green.
Burgess did not have much professional luck with the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star, 50, either, as they were eliminated third.
The show’s upcoming 32nd season will feature celebrities including Jamie Lynn Spears, Mira Sorvino, Barry Williams, Ariana Madix, Alyson Hannigan and Mauricio Umansky.
