The Dancing with the Stars 2022 tour is currently underway, and one of the main stars has pulled out of the rest of the shows.
Artem Chigvintsev took to social media to reveal that he had to pull out of the rest of the tour due to medical issues.
Here is what we know about Artem and his illness.
Artem pulls out of DWTS 2022 tour
Artem posted an Instagram message to his 990,000 followers that announced he had to leave the tour.
“My time on tour so far has been wonderful,” Artem wrote. “Unfortunately I am having to step away from tour for a while, due to some unexpected health issues. My goal is to recover as quickly as possible so I can rejoin my cast and crew on this incredible tour.”
“Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
It is unclear what the medical situation might be, but Artem is finished with the DWTS tour now, and fans aren’t likely to see him again until the show returns in late 2022.

Artem had just gone home for a break
The news that Artem fell ill came just one week after he took a short break from the Dancing with the Stars tour to go home to be with his family.
Artem posted a photo of himself with his wife Nikki Bella and wrote, “I’m so happy that i was able to see my family on a day off even if it’s just for 11hr , I miss them so much they are the most precious people in my life. Don’t know what I would do without them. Love you both.”
While Artem is sick, it seems that Nikki is still doing well. She is set to appear at the WWE Royal Rumble with her twin sister Brie Bella as competitors in two weeks.
Dancing with the Stars is on hiatus. The dancing reality competition series will return in late 2022 to ABC.
