Tom Bergeron finally found out the truth!

The former host of the "Dancing With the Stars" shared a funny photo of himself reading up on the real reason he was let go from competition series.

In the photo, Bergeron can be seen reading a copy of Star Magazine that teases the article: “DWTS Shake-Up! Why Tom Bergeron Was Really Fired!”

Since Bergeron is wearing a face mask in the grocery store, you can’t see his full expression, but the look in his eyes indicates he was shocked by what he read.

"Who says grocery shopping isn't enlightening," he captioned the snap.

On July 14, it was announced that Bergeron and Erin Andrews would be leaving the show.

ABC and BBC revealed in a joint statement that they were parting ways with the duo to "embark on a new creative direction."

ABC went on to say that Bergeron “departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success.”

The 65-year-old, who's been with the show since 2005 said on Twitter, “It’s been an incredible 15-year run and the most unexpected gift of my career,” he wrote. “I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made.”

ABC said that Andrews’ “signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.” She has been co-host of the show since 2014.

Shortly after the announcement, Tyra Banks was named as the new host and executive producer.

“I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning,” the “America’s Next Top Model” host said in a statement.

“The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances… it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk. Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”

“Dancing With the Stars” is currently gearing up to swing back into production.

ABC and BBC Studios are putting in place a series of health and safety protocols that will allow the cast and crew to get to work on season 29.
