We’re sad to report that Brandon Smith will not be returning to ABC’s Skating With The Stars.
The 21-year-old actor’s rep confirms to JustJaredJr.com, “Brandon Mychal Smith will not be skating tonight and will be departing from the show due to illness. While he was able to return to practice last week after being taken to the hospital for a stomach virus, the show’s sponsored doctor has advised him that he should not skate tonight as he is still sick.”
While Brandon is said, he doesn’t want to put partner Keauna McLaughlin, himself, or the show at any risk.

We do Taco Night and I bring all my close friendsâ€¦ That’s kind of like the reset portion of my life.”
Brandon added, “I applaud her for actually having the maturity to let them know, ‘Hey, I need my space.’”
