Jewel Already Injured On Dancing With the Stars

UPDATE: Jewel says she will dance on! In a statement, she reveals: "Yes, it is true I have had a minor setback in my training ... but I am dedicated to getting better and showing the judges and America that I can cha cha with the best of them. Don't count me out, as I am in this for the long run." Phew!

The Dancing With the Stars curse strikes again! The new season doesn't premiere on ABC until March 9, but already singer Jewel may be out with an injury.

Jewel, who is paired with new Dancing pro Dmitry Chaplin for the competition, wrote on her blog today that tendonitis in her knees may prevent her from participating on the show. Apparently, she overextended herself during rehearsals for her first dance, the cha-cha.

Is a little friendly spousal rivalry to blame? Jewel's husband, country singer Ty Murray, is also competing on DWTS this season.

Jewel expects to be sidelined for the next couple of days. "Now I'm just worried I won't even be able to dance!" she writes on her blog.

As for her hubby, he is saying: I told you so. Stay tuned!
