Edyta Sliwinska has claimed that she will leave Dancing With The Stars following a major dispute with the show's producers.

The professional dancer told TMZ that the reality show's bosses wanted more control over her career than she was prepared to give up.

"The producers's vision of what they wanted my career to be did not meet my expectations. They wanted my career to be the show. I can't be a dancer my whole life," she said.

Sliwinska also stated that she was upset that she had been unable to work more with her husband, fellow dancer Alec Mazo.

She added: "I want to work more with my husband and [the producers] didn't make him a big part of the show or very involved."

Sliwinska, who joined the programme in 2005, said that she plans to use this opportunity to complete her education.

"I am also going back to school to get my degree in Communications and Dance. I also have more projects that I want to work on."

A source close to the show noted that the dancer is still under contract, which could prevent her from leaving the series.

A rep for Dancing With The Stars declined to comment.
