It seems that Meryl Davis is still hoping that her chemistry with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on "Dancing with the Stars" will lead to chemistry off the stage. Unfortunately for her, Maks is playing the field as always, especially when it comes to hot models. OK! Magazine reported on Friday, June 20, that the Olympic gold medalist was left extremely upset when she discovered sexy photos of his ex-girlfriend Kate Upton on his phone.
According to a source, Meryl "freaked" after she found photos of Kate blowing kisses on Maks' phone. The source added that Meryl was hoping on to hope that what they had on the show was real but it turns out that Maks is the same ladies' man he always been.
Meryl may have also seen a photo of Kate, smiling wide, with her arm around Maks. It was reported in early June that Maks posted that photo to his Instagram account, only to then quickly delete it.
While Maks doesn't seem to be interested in a romantic relationship with Meryl, he definitely still holds her in very high regard. In an interview with Social Life magazine, Maks practically said that no one will ever compare to Meryl as a dance partner. When asked about returning for another season of "Dancing with the Stars," Maks said that he wants Meryl to be the last person that he dances with, the last person he "got to be passionate with and care so much for."
With comments like that, it's no wonder that Meryl Davis would be led to believe that there's more between them than just a professional relationship! Alas, Maks Chmerkovskiy also explained in his interview that after working so closely with someone for three months, it's pretty much inevitable that he'll get close to them but that the relationships are just "showmance[s]," much like the relationships that teens develop at summer camp since they're together all the time and isolated from the outside world.
