Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff have had to be in close proximity to each other since their break-up last month because they’re both on Dancing With the Stars. But not anymore! Maks was sent home with his partner Debi Mazar last night, and he apparently feels grateful that he won’t have to deal with awkward run-ins with his ex anymore.
Maks told People, "I feel completely betrayed. I'm done. I don't want to get into the specifics. Let's just leave it at I'm done."
Even Debi seemed to know Maks was going through a tough time, saying, "I'm giving him a lot of support and positive energy.”
Rumor has it Maksim is angry over the amount of time Karina has been spending with her partner Aaron Carter. And we’re not talking about rehearsal time. Carter recently told reporters he had a crush on dancer Chelsea Hightower, but Maks saw right through it.
He said last night, "That's so funny. Everyone knows that's not true. That's Karina trying to manipulate things to take attention off her and Aaron.”
We guess a reconciliation is out of the question now. Break-ups are never easy, especially when you’re both on the same television show!
