Amber Rose is partnering with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Season 23 of Dancing With The Stars and she is a fairly controversial contestant choice in terms of “DWTS” picks. While she has quite the colorful past, not all fans of the show are all that familiar with her. What do viewers need to know about Maks' new partner?

Amber Rose is no stranger to attention

This “Dancing With the Stars” contestant first hit the scene via Ludacris' video for “What Them Girls Like” in 2008 and some may recognize her from print modeling she did for Louis Vuitton and Kanye West's sneaker line. She has done quite a bit of modeling and has appeared in numerous music videos.

Amber Rose has appeared on several reality television shows, and she even scored her own talk show this past summer on VH1.

What this “Dancing With the Stars” contestant may be even better known for, however, are her romantic relationships. Amber was married to rapper Wiz Khalifa for a while, and the two share son Sebastian Taylor Thomaz together. Prior to being with Khalifa, Amber dated Kanye West for some time, and as Capital Xtra notes, Rose had a couple of long-term romantic relationships with women before dating West.

This 'DWTS' contestant has a big personality

Amber and Kanye have had some explosive and public battles via social media that touched on experiences with both Wiz and West's wife Kim Kardashian, notes the Daily Mail. Rose has never been one to mince words or shy away from a fight.
