“Dancing With the Stars” duo James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd are already dealing with dating rumors, but the two are trying to speak out and dampen the buzz. Are they or aren't they a romantic couple? Maslow is trying to set the record straight and People shared the latest on March 18.
James Maslow says that he did go on one date with Peta Murgatroyd prior to becoming “DWTS” partners, but nothing came of it. The two admit they are getting asked about romance rumors a lot right now, and typically they find it funny. Maslow says that he's flattered because Peta is beautiful, but he added that they really are just there to dance.
Romance rumors are nothing new for “Dancing With the Stars,” and it's nothing new for Peta Murgatroyd specifically. At least for now, though, the dancer and the Big Time Rush singer are focusing on their footwork. Could it lead to more? James told RumorFix that they “don't want to complicate that at this moment and add dating to the long list of work to do.”
Just how will James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd do this season on “DWTS”? They didn't get off to the strongest start in Monday's premiere, but fans are anxious to see more of them and chances are they'll be around at least for a bit to do some more dancing. Tune in to “Dancing With the Stars” every Monday night on ABC to see how the season 18 contestants fare.
