Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the dance world's prime duo. The jig's up for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff.According to People, Karina's rep confirmed yesterday that the pair have called off their engagement.' Maks, 28, proposed to Karina, 31, in January of this year.
The engagement seemed the fairy tale ending to their rapport as colleagues and a fresh, new meaning to the word "partner." So what happened?
In July they finally set a wedding date of June 2010 when their hectic Broadway schedules reportedly got in the way. "We're rehearsing 14 hours a day."Karina added, "We were supposed to pick the place, but we've never actually had the time to go further [with the plans]."Was the wedding not enough of a priority for Karina?
Last March reported that Maks had taken a lead with the planning, and Karina said she'd go along with whatever he wanted.
And based on each of their Twitter updats over the last few days, Karina initiated the split.
For the last few days she's been tweeting happily about progress with her new partner Aaron Carter, and three weeks ago she tweeted about how she and Maks were disagreeing over decorating their home. OMG, yesterday, Maks tweeted, "What was meant to be a 'life long book', turned into a 'chapter'......now that 'chapter' is finished......
Se la vie..." (The post was removed before the researching of this story.) Yep, looks like Maks is groveling, even though AOL is reporting he dumped Karina because she's "too high maintenance" and "lacked independence."However they'll stay a team to fulfill their obligation to dance together at this year's Emmys on Septemer 20 but will no longer share a dressing room, according to
