"I support him no matter what he chooses 2do! God! will there always be haters! It took COURAGE 2 do dwts!...Chaz has an Unlimited [supply]. (sic)"

He wrote: "Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can.

Meanwhile, Chaz has revealed he was thrilled to have instantly "hit it off" with his professional dancing partner Lacey Schwimmer.

He said: "We kind of instantly hit it off. She has a great attitude for teaching me."
