The infamous cyclist, who was recently stripped of his Tour de France titles and banned from the sport after he admitted to doping, reportedly turned down the offer to join the sixteenth season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
EW reports the network approached Lance before the highly publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which he admitted to doping. A spokesperson confirmed to EW that Lance is one of the few high profile athletes who get offered a spot in the ballroom every season.
But Lance isn’t the only scandal-ridden celebrity who turned down ABC’s offer to join Dancing With the Stars. Troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan reportedly rejected $550,000 to paso in the ballroom.
