VAL Chmerkovskiy may have danced his last cha-cha.

The Dancing With the Stars vet dropped hints he may be leaving the show after this season, which saw the married man caught up in rumors of hooking up with partner Olivia Jade.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Val admitted: ...I love the show. I love being on it. I am so grateful for the opportunity.

...Is this my last season? Probably. Probably. I have no regrets about my tenure on the show. I have no regrets about the season. I couldn't have asked for a better partner to end it with....

Val, 35, and Olivia, 22, were shockingly eliminated on November 8. But the rumors of a behind-the-scenes hookup continue.

Earlier in the season, a person alleging to work on the set of DWTS claimed in a TikTok video that she was approached by a male cast member with a strange request.

The TikTok user claimed the dancer requested ...for his wife not to come near his trailer....

She added that the dancer in question ...and his wife are never seen on set together,... before alleging to have heard the ...Dancer and young female dancer partner/contestant giggling....

Olivia then jumped in, saying: ...I just want to clear the air before this goes any further or this video blows up any more.

...First of all, the woman who posted it blocked me and somebody sent me this video.

...I'm just gonna be super blunt and straight up and say Val and I are not hooking up, we have never hooked up....

Olivia went on to say: ...This is a complete rumor. We're genuinely really good friends and I adore his wife.

...It's literally just a dance show and we're just friends and I don't know why everything always has to be something. But I've obviously already seen a ton of negative comments and, yeah, I mean, I get it if it was true, but it's not so let's end this hear and lets f**king dance and have fun on this show and not create lies....


But The Sun sources say Olivia definitely had a “little crush” on Val at one point, though now views him “like a brother....

The insider claimed: ”There is for sure nothing going on with Olivia and Val. 

“She is close with both him and his wife because she genuinely cares so passionately about the show but that's it. 

“She for sure thinks he's cute and maybe originally had a little crush but looks up to him now like a brother. His advice means a lot to her....

Val has been married to fellow DWTS dancer Jenna Johnson since 2019.


Olivia should be accustomed to controversy at this point.

Prior to her appearance on the show, she found herself wrapped up in the college admissions scandal that made national headlines.

In 2019, Olivia's parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted and accused of bribing administrators at the University of Southern California to accept Olivia and sister Bella Giannulli.

Both Lori, 57, and Mossimo, 58, were sentenced to time in prison and ordered to pay $400,000 in fines between them.


After their elimination, Val spoke to reporters about their relationship.

“I’m very proud of her. I’m proud of us. I’m proud of this season,” he said.

...It meant a lot to me to be in a position to help somebody, period. But also somebody that could have used it. I’m grateful for that opportunity. I’m grateful that it worked too.

...We did win some folks over. We did get a chance to shed a different light on her and show her in a different spotlight. And then also show that she earned it, that she wasn’t just given it.

...She earned her stay here and for eight weeks, it’s been a blast.

...I got a lot of love for this young lady and I got a lot of love for the universe for bringing us together and giving me a chance to do this season.”
