Dancing With the Stars Pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd Split
After 10 months of dating, Dancing With the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd have split, reports Us Weekly. The DWTS pair allegedly broke up two weeks prior to Valentine’s Day. The reason for the split? Maks just “wasn’t feeling her anymore,” a source told the magazine. Peta, however, wasn’t on the same page as her hot-headed former beau. It looks like things will be pretty awkward this season on Dancing With the Stars 2013, which premieres March 16. But this isn’t the first time Maks has worked with a former flame. The DWTS pro was previously engaged to fellow pro Karina Smirnoff. The two broke up in 2009, and things between them have been rocky to say the least.
“I will never speak to that person again,” he told the New York Post when asked about Karina back in 2011. “And I never have. It has been years now. But I am not bitter.”
Yikes! Here’s hoping Maks and Peta resolve things before DWTSSeason 16 kicks off. If not, then maybe it’s a good thing Maks is hanging up his dancing shoes at the end of the year.
Dancing With the Stars Season 16 premieres Monday, March 16 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
