The 34 year-old professional dancer will not be returning to season 19 of 'Dancing With The Stars.'
Maksim Chmerkovskiy will no longer be appearing on the small screen in his dancing shoes. The Latin Ballroom dance champion was first introduced to viewers of ABC's 'Dancing With The Stars' in the second series back in 2006, and stayed as a regular professional partner until the 15th season.
Chmerkovskiy debuted on 'DWTS' in 2006
After a two year hiatus, Chmerkovskiy returned to grace the dance floor once again, but this would end up being the last time as he has decided not to return for the reality show's 19th season because the experience just wasn't the same.
Has J.Lo speedily snagged herself a new man?
Jennifer Lopez is said to have found herself a new lover less than a week after her split from former boyfriend and dancer Casper Smart. Well, J.Lo's new man is apparently a dancer too - in fact, you might know him. Maksim Chmerkovskiy ring a bell? The pop singer and the Dancing With The Stars choreographer and instructor have reportedly been getting rather friendly recently.
The 44 year-old 'Jenny From The Block' singer recently split from her 27 year-old lover amidst reports that Smart had been sexually involved with two transgender women. Luckily, Chmerkovskiy has been on hand for to comfort Jennifer in a friendship that could have blossomed into more.
"It's really new," an insider said of the pair's relationship to the NY Daily News. Apparently, things began to sizzle between J.Lo and Maksim at last November's American Music Awards where the DWTS standout performed as a backing dancer and even twirled the singer above his head at one point in a nerve-wracking dance stunt.

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander looked very cosy in photographs taken at a pre-Super Bowl party in New York. The supermodel has recently split up with her boyfriend of 6 months, 'Dancing With the Stars' professional, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Kate Upton may be off the market again as she was spotted cuddling up to Detroit Tigers pitcher, Justin Verlander.
Model Upton has appeared on a number of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues.
The pair was spotted at a pre-Super Bowl party, the 2014 GQ Super Bowl Party to be precise, in New York on Friday (31st January). Upton and Verlander have been romantically linked before but this is the first time photographic evidence of the two, seemingly enjoying spending time together if their smiles are anything to go by, has been seen. The New York Daily News was the first to report on Upton and Verlander's possible rekindled relationship.

Just like the Verlander case earlier this year, these reports are false.
As soon as there was the slightest chance that Kate Upton was dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the rumors started blazing. Good news for the thousands of fans crushing on the 20-year-old model though – those rumors were not true. According to E! News, a source close to both celebrities explained that the two "are just good friends," while a second source (who is close with Chmerkovskiy) revealed that they've "heard nothing about them dating."
Barring the possibility that the Upton and Chmerkovskiy don’t immediately share each new private detail of their lives with friends, this would mean that the two are most definitely not together. Note that the entire supposed romance began, unfolded and subsequently died without a single word from either Kate or Maksim on the matter. It began with a report coming in that the pair were spotted wining and dining together at Scalinatella in New York.
Apparently that really is all it takes for the headlines to start rolling. However, management at the Upper East Side joint subsequently denied the claims and explained that the dinner between Upton and Chmerkovskiy “did not look intimate at all.” In fact, they could not confirm that it was the high profile pair at all, but whoever it was, they appeared to be “just friends.” If this is a repeat of the Justin Verlander affair though, the rumors aren’t likely to stop until Upton herself explicitly denies any connection.
Kate Upton was spotted with Maksim - or someone who looks like Maksim - at a New York eatery this week.
It's a question that's been on our minds all week. Is Kate Upton dating Dancing with the Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy? The duo were apparently spotted enjoying each other's company at Scalinatella in New York City this week, though management at the Upper East Side eatery debunked reports of a relationship and told E! news that their dinner "did not look intimate at all."
Meanwhile, a source told E! News that the two "are just good friends" while a second source close to Maksim said they've "heard nothing about them dating." Anyhow, the restaurant in New York couldn't even confirm that it was the dancer with the buxom Vogue cover model though did note that the two dinner guests appeared "just friends."
Upton - now one of the world's most popular models - has remained mum on her dating life in recent years, though vehemently denied she was dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander during a Fox News interview back in February. Past reports have linked Kate to Sean 'P Diddy' Combs, Kanye West, football ace Mark Sanchez and even Never Back Down actor Sean Faris.
