Lopez And Smirnoff Split
MARIO LOPEZ has split from his DANCING WITH THE STARS partner and real life girlfriend KARINA SMIRNOFF.
The pair hooked up when they were contestants on the show last year (07), and they moved in together soon after.
But their romance has failed to last the distance - despite Smirnoff insisting just a month ago that they were "still going strong".
Smirnoff revealed the news of the split to the New York Post's Pop Wrap blog, saying, "He's a great guy, I think the world of him, he's is wonderful man, he's a great aspect of the entertainment industry but we're both concentrating on our own careers right now. I wouldn't be a good girlfriend to anyone, I'm so busy."
