”Maksim DID date (and was engaged to) fellow pro dancer Karina Smirnoff, but he says it’s not an issue.
he NEVER slapped Hope Solo across the face behind the scenes at "Dancing with the Stars" ... in which the Team USA soccer star claims Maksim pulled a Rick James while trying to put her head in the correct position for a dancing move. especially because they've had dinner several times since the show ended.
Maksim is getting headlines for admitting that Kirstie Alley disconnected from him, as is Scientology practice but which they always deny to the press.
Kirstie did this after he was friendly with COS defector Leah Remini, who competed with Tony Dovolani in 2013. Us: The pro-partner relationship is intense, almost like you’re a real couple. CB: Well, we do dry-hump each other for what seems like 24/7 for a few months!
This is 100 percent not true," a source close to the show told me. Maksim was absolutely shocked when he heard about the "completely false" story in Hope's book, "Solo: A Memoir of Hope" ... he has no idea why Solo would publish such a false and defamatory statement and doesn't know why she would have such ill will towards him ...In fact, Hope JUST tweeted Maksim right before the Olympics, offering him free seats to one of the Team USA soccer games.They split briefly in 2014 just three years after he came to fame as the winner of Dancing With The Stars.But over the weekend JR Martinez and his baby mama Diana Gonzalez-Jones proved they are not only back together, but ready to settle down for a lifetime as they made their union official by getting married in Tulum, Mexico.
