According to reports, it’s official: Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of “Dancing with the Stars” have broken up.
After a six-month relationship, according to Us Weekly, a source close to the couple said they’re still amicable regardless of what happened—though when we reached out to Maksim’s rep we got the standard “no comment.”
“They are really good friends still and speak all the time,” the source explained, “but their schedules just made it too difficult and it fell apart. Maksim has a lot of respect for her, but it just wasn’t working anymore.”
The two pretty much announced their romance when they were photographed together in September while walking around New York City hand-in-hand.
Maksim wasn’t shy then of speaking openly about his then-girlfriend and their unexpected chemistry.
“She’s an amazing person,” he said to Us. “We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn’t see that coming and I think neither did she. We enjoy each other’s company very much and like I said, she’s a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened.”
