Maks has decided to take full responsibility for his Dancing with the Stars absence. The dancer failed to show up in the dance competition and perform alongside his dance partner Vanessa Lachey this week, due to ‘personal issues.’
Today, the man took to social media not only to announce his return on Monday but also apologize to Vanessa amid rumors that it was her ‘diva’ behavior that made him ditch her during the Guilty Pleasures themed week.
‘As you are all aware, I had to leave the show last week to take care of some personal issues. I take full responsibility for my absence… and want to apologize to my partner Vanessa. We’re both looking forward to dancing for our fans next week!’ Maks tweeted.
The explanation comes a day after the dancer posted a snap of Vanessa dancing with Alan Bersten on his personal Instagram.
As fans of the hit show definitely know, it was Bersten who filled for Chmerkovskiy so that Lachey could perform in his absence.
This is not the first time the man did Maks a solid – just last season, he also filed in for him when Chmerkovskiy injured his calf while rehearsing with his then partner, Glee star Heather Morris.
Meanwhile, speculations have been going around that the real reason why Maks skipped the show was an ongoing conflict with Vanessa Lachey.
‘They were acting like they had great chemistry when really they were just faking it to seem more likable to the fans. Things got heated between the two this week … it was nothing specific, just little disagreements that escalated,’ the insider dished.
