Apparently, the pro dancer would do anything to end his feud with dance partner Vanessa, even if that means being voted off of Dancing with the Stars. Although the two seem to be moving in harmony on the dance floor, behind the scenes, the situation between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Vanessa Lachey is entirely different.
‘They both hate each other and he’s done. He wants to be voted off the show and hopes that all this attention will not get her more votes,’ an insider on the set of the hit dance competition revealed.
Their differences got to a point that Maks couldn’t do it anymore and intentionally missed their October 2 performance because he couldn’t take it anymore.
His vague taking care of ‘personal issues’ excuse was reportedly just a cover.
Maks took to social media soon after his absence to not only sort of explain why he couldn’t be there but also apologize to his dance partner.
Finally, the talented dancer promised a return this week and that is exactly what he did.
That being said, while the two were dancing during the newest episode, the tensions were unnoticeable.
The fact that they have great chemistry on the dance floor is very well known which is why he’ll probably not get his wish of getting voted off anytime soon.
Still, Maks is hopeful nonetheless that his time with Lackey will soon come to an end.
‘She has a very small fan base, and he hopes his fans don’t vote for him. He wants this to end. ASAP!’ the source noted.
Would you be sad if the couple got voted off?
