Shortly after winning the mirror ball trophy with J.R. Martinez on Dancing With The Stars, Karina Smirnoff called off her wedding to Tigers pitcher Brad Penny. Now, over a month later, Karina has finally decided to stop wearing her engagement ring – guess the couple are really done! Read on for more…
Karina Smirnoff announced a few months ago that due to her strict schedule on Dancing With The Stars, she would be postponing her wedding to her fiance, Brad Penny, but then she called the entire wedding off last month. Now, over a month after she called off the wedding, Life & Style Magazine spotted the mirror ball champion celebrating her birthday at the Sugar Factory American Brasserie and Gallery nightclub in Las Vegas this weekend, and Karina Smirnoff was no longer sporting her beautiful engagement ring.
And it’s safe to assume that Karina Smirnoff and Brad Penny are over for good, as Life & Style also caught up with a friend of Karina’s, who confirmed that, telling the magazine: “They are completely broken up. It’s 100 percent over. The distance and their careers took them in separate directions, and Karina needed someone more supportive.” Don’t worry though, friends of the beauty assured Life & Style that Karina is doing well, and her former partner, Ralph Macchio even weighed in on Karina, telling them: “She is doing great. I am going to see her soon, as we have been talking about working on something else, not necessarily dancing.”
We wish Karina Smirnoff and Brad Penny all the best in the future! Let us know what you think, comment below.
