AARON Carter claimed he “hooked up” with his Dancing With the Stars partner Karina Smirnoff and “stole” her from her fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

During season 9 of the ABC reality competition series, the 33-year-old singer competed with the professional dancer, 43, and the two ended in fifth place.

While appearing as a guest on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast, the two traded stories about their time on DWTS – as they participated in 2009’s back-to-back seasons.

Steve-O revealed it was all “wonderful people” there, but his experience was “terrible.”

Meanwhile, Aaron went a bit more in-depth about why he had a “pretty terrible” time on the show, as well, explaining that it was because of how much work it was and who he was partnered with.

He claimed that he “stole” his partner Karina away from her fiance at the time, fellow DWTS dancer Maksim.

The two broke off their engagement in September 2009 after Aaron allegedly “hooked up with her.”

The singer, who’s now expecting his first child with fiancee Melanie Martin, told Steve-O that things with Karina didn’t end well.

He claimed on the podcast: “Then Karina and I just didn’t click, and we were about to win and then she got mad at me because I basically didn’t want to be with her-with her.” 

The relationship between the two of them allegedly became so tumultuous that she was “stomping 'his ' feet on purpose during live performances with those heels, and she would knee 'him ' in the balls real quick.”

Aaron claimed it was “because she just didn’t want to be on” the show anymore with him and was “so mad.”

Kristina’s rep did not return The Sun’s request for comment.


In 2009, the dance partners denied rumors of a romance.

At the time, Aaron said to Us Weekly it was “completely false” and that there was “nothing going on” between the two of them aside from friendship and a partnership.

Meanwhile, Karina told People of the dating rumors: “It’s really funny. The rumors are that we are hooking up but then we’re not sexy enough on the dance floor according to head judge Len Goodman? 

“Let me tell you, if that was the case, the dance would have been very raunchy, as Len wanted it to be.”

As for Maksim, after his split from Karina, he told People that he felt “completely betrayed.”

He added: ...I don't want to get into the specifics. Let’s just leave it at I'm done.”


Now, Aaron is engaged to his fiance Melanie, and she's pregnant with their first kid.

He revealed the news earlier this year by showing off positive pregnancy tests in a home video.

In the video, the father-to-be showed as one test turned into a clear positive as he said: ...Alright, so this is the second one we are testing.

...Because the first one came out like this,... he said as he showed a blurry positive pregnancy test.

Melanie responded in the video: ...I don't know what's going on. You can see it....

...Well, yeah because you're pregnant. Here we go!... Aaron laughed behind the camera.

As the pregnancy test turned positive, Melanie told the singer: ...I love you, baby....
