Dancing With The Stars” romance rumors swirl with almost every season, and that has also become the case in Season 23. This one is an interesting one, and those involved seem to be playing a bit coy when it comes to answers. Are Val Chmerkovskiy and Amber Rose dating?

'DWTS' insiders say that Val and Amber are spending time together

Amber Rose was partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val's brother, this season, while Val is partnered with Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez. Amber and Maks were eliminated recently, but it sounds as if she and Val are still spending quite a bit of time together.

Rose just celebrated her birthday this past weekend and Val was with her for the fun.

When asked whether they are dating, however, the “DWTS” pro told Entertainment Tonight that he can't control what people think and he just lives his life the way he wants to live it. He pointed out that he posts plenty of pictures with Hernandez and nobody wonders if they're dating. Of course, Laurie is just 16-years-old, but some “Dancing With the Stars” fans did generate romance rumors when Chmerkovskiy danced with a then-16 Zendaya a few seasons ago.

Chmerkovskiy has faced 'DWTS' romance rumors before

This is hardly the first time that Val has been at the center of “Dancing With the Stars” romance rumors. Many “DWTS” fans felt sure that he was dating “General Hospital” star Kelly Monaco during their season together, and there was buzz when he was partnered with “Pretty Little Liars” actress Janel Parrish too.

Many of the show's fans have actually thought that Chmerkovskiy was dating Jenna Johnson, a fellow “DWTS” pro who had her first celebrity partner in Season 23 with Jake T. Austin, but neither have ever confirmed that they've dated. Some also speculated about romance for Val when he was paired with Rumer Willis a few seasons back.

Sources for People tease that Amber and Val are in the early stages of a romance, nothing that they like one another a lot but that things are very new. Another insider said that the two seem to be just close friends, and from the looks of things, neither Rose or Chmerkovskiy are all that anxious to confirm things one way or the other.

Do you think that these two “Dancing With the Stars” personalities are dating? Could Amber Rose and Val Chmerkovskiy make a good pair?
