“Maks & Karina: Getting Flirty!” reads the headline of a Life & Style story that claims Maksim Chmerkovskiy has “fallen” for his ex-fiancée Karina Smirnoff “yet again.”

A so-called “source” tells the tabloid that the former “Dancing With the Stars” co-stars, who split in 2009, are “constantly flirting.”


“Maks is very, very affectionate with her,” says the alleged “insider.” “He is always trying to kiss her and nuzzle her neck. They haven’t hooked up yet, but Maks has made it very clear to her that he wants to!”

Chmerkovskiy and Smirnoff broke up five years ago. They’re not “getting flirty.”

Of course, this is the same outlet that falsely reported Chmerkovskiy was “planning to go public” with Jennifer Lopez and made up a story about him dating Meryl Davis.

Regardless, a source close to Chmerkovskiy assures Gossip Cop this story is “absolutely ludicrous.”

Earlier today, Gossip Cop reported the season 19 cast, with Smirnoff paired with Randy Couture.
