LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas have reportedly sung their last song and danced their last dance together. According to multiple reports, the reality romance between the pair is over.
Sources told E! News that the 22-year-old “American Idol” contestant and the 25-year-old “Dancing with the Stars” professional dancer have split.
“They both decided with everything going on that they couldn’t give each other what would be fair,” another source told People. “They mutually decided this.”
Mark is currently prepping for a new “Dancing” season with celebrity partner Kristin Cavallari.
A rep for Pia would not comment on the reported split when contacted by E! but did say, “She’s hard at work on her new album and can’t wait for her fans to hear it. Pia is wrapping up her ‘American Idol’ tour and her album is expected to be released soon.”
Pia opened up about the origin of her then-budding relationship with the ballroom star back in April, during a visit to Access Hollywood Live, saying, “We both film at CBS so we would bump into each other, and you know, he’s just a really sweet guy. He is a very nice guy.”
