Karina Smirnoff & Arie Luyendyk Dating?

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes



“Karina & Arie: IT’S OFFICIAL,” reads a headline from Star, which claims “Dancing with the Stars” pro Karina Smirnoff and “Bachelorette” runner-up Arie Luyendyk are “dating.”

The mag says the reality stars “met in Los Angeles on Sept. 13,” and were “spotted flirting up a storm at an after party for the premiere of ‘DWTS.'”

According to a supposed insider for the tabloid, “Everyone could see them — they were having a blast.”

The alleged source adds, “If dating each other gets more headlines, they are all for it.”

Actually, the only one trying to make headlines off of Smirnoff and Luyendyk’s “relationship” is Star.

The pair is NOT dating.

They met once at a party — that’s it.

A rep for Smirnoff tells Gossip Cop there’s no truth to the mag’s romance claims.
