Maksim Chmerkovskiy has been linked to some of Hollywood’s hottest women, but is the “Dancing with the Stars” pro actually with any of them?
Access Hollywood spoke to the “DWTS” hunk on Monday where he weighed in on rumors that he’s romantically linked to Jennifer Lopez, his most recent dancing partner Meryl Davis and model-turned-actress Kate Upton.
“I just flew in literally, and I read about this,” he said of the rampant romance rumors. “Those are big names, I’m flattered… I just don’t think that’s anybody’s business.”
Maks stopped short of confirming or flat out denying the speculation.
“What would you like me to say? I’m not dating J.Lo, Meryl and Kate. Maybe I’m dating all three, who knows!” he continued.
“I love Meryl. We’re friends and we’ll always be,” he told Access, explain his personal life “won’t be anybody’s business.”
So what about his professional life and future on “DWTS”?
“I just don’t think I want to do the show again as a dancer,” he told Access. “I wouldn’t be able to do it again at this level, with that big of an emotional output.”
Adding, “It’s better if I bow out.”
