Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Aaron Carter just revealed that he broke up Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy when he and Karina were partnered together back in Season 9.
“I stole Karina Smirnoff, my partner, from the other guy on the show, Maksim Chmerkovskiy,” Aaron said on the Wild Ride with Steve-O podcast (via Heavy). “I basically stole her from him and then they broke off their engagement.”
Karina and Maksim were engaged at the time, and People reported that Aaron was the reason for their split. “I feel completely betrayed. I’m done,” he told the outlet at the time. “I don’t want to get into the specifics. Let’s just leave it at I’m done.”
Meanwhile, sources said that things got tense when Maksim “was made aware of the inordinate amount of time” Karina was spending with Aaron.
However, ultimately they didn’t work out—as IRL partners or dance partners. As Aaron put it, “Karina and I just didn’t click and we were about to win and she got mad at me because I basically didn’t want to be with her and was like stomping my feet on purpose during live performances, with those heels and all. She would knee me in the balls real quick just ’cause she didn’t want to be on anymore with me.”
Neither Karina nor Maksim have responded to Aaron’s recent claims, but considering this all went down over a decade ago, something tells me it’s water under the bridge.
