Chmerkovskiy previously denied that he was in a relationship with Davis and explained during an interview with
Social Life Magazine that it was all just a “showmance.”

In a previous interview with
US Weekly, Chmerkovskiy added in reference to Davis, “I love her, I love her! I love her as a person and for what she has allowed me to do with our choreography and how much she’s embraced it. I literally had a perfect partnership with Meryl. Everything just came together.”
Lopez’s divorce with estranged husband Marc Anthony was formalized earlier this month.
