Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovski have said over and over that they will keep their relationship professional in regards to their ended engagement. However, after a recent falling out backstage at the Emmys, have things taken a turn for the worse?Â Keep reading to find out what the pair told Life & Style about life after the breakup…
Despite reports, Karina insists that she and Maks are still able to keep things cordial. But how does Maks feel?Â When asked if he and his ex-fiance are still friends, Maks told Life & Style, “No. She’s a lot better at hiding her feelings apparently than I am. I just need to drop the sad person act and move on.”
Ouch.Â I feel a bit of resentment in that sentence.
Well, we certainly sympathize with their situation.Â Normally, when you break up with someone you aren’t forced to work in close proximity to them every day as they are on Dancing With The Stars. “I hate the situation with Karina because it’s really gotten blown out of proportion,” Maks told Life & Style. “It’s done. It’s over with.”
We’ll take your word for it until next month when you guys announce the engagement is back on!
Dancing With The Stars kicks off Monday, September 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
