Well, if there were ever going to be romance rumors about Melissa Gilbert and her Dancing With the Stars Season 14 partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, we can officially bid them adieu right now.

Life & Style says the recently divorced Little House on the Prairie star is dating a hot Frenchman named Thierry Gauchet, who restores and sells vintage cars in Paris.

"He lives in the Montmartre area of France," the source told Life & Style. "He sends [Melissa] really sweet texts in French." Another source said, "He puts the number 7 on all his cars. He even has a 7 tattooed on his arm! It's amazing. He has a lot of tattoos."

The relationship seems to be pretty hot and heavy and one of the sources said Thierry will be in the DWTS audience sometime in mid-April.

Melissa was first married to Bo Brinkman from 1988 to 1992, then married Bruce Boxleitner from 1995 to 2011. Life & Style added that Melissa was also linked to A-listers like Tom Cruise, Scott Baio and Rob Lowe. She’s a worldly woman, our Melissa! And very, very lucky.

Catch the next new episode of DWTS on Monday, March 26 at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC.
