Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis went out on a double date with Maks’ brother Val Chmerkovskiy and his Dancing with the Stars partner, Janel Parrish. According to Us Weekly, the Chmerkovskiy brothers were joined by their lovely ladies (though there hasn’t been any confirmation that either brother is romantically involved with his “significant dance partner”) and a couple of other friends.
Maks decided to take a couple of photos of his night out with Meryl (and Val… and Janel…), and fans loved every photographic moment! Maks captioned his photos “family dinner,” and mentioned that he was out celebrating Davis’ latest accomplishment: She was recently named Sportswoman of the Year at the Women’s Sports Foundation’s Annual Salute to Women in Sports.
Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis haven’t been together (publicly) since the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars so you can probably imagine just how thrilled fans of the non-couple were to see them together. Of course, seeing Val and Janel out together also made people wonder about their rumored romance. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Janel Parrish recently broke up with her boyfriend, Payson Lewis. He made the announcement on Twitter, which then stirred the Janel/Val romance pot at a very high speed! Could Janel’s breakup have to do with her possible feelings for Val?!
It would be pretty awesome if both Maks and Val found love on Dancing with the Stars. While they have both made some great connections with dance partners over the years, Meryl and Janel just seem to fit. Many fans of the Chmerkovskiy brothers would love to see the guys settle down and get married.
Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis dating rumors slowed down after the last season finale of DWTS, but every time the two are out together, people start talking all over again. According to KpopStars, Maks has referred to Meryl as a “close friend,” and has stressed that the two have a serious platonic relationship.
“I was dancing pro on the show for about a decade, and I needed the trophy to show for it. But Meryl was part of that. And while I am doing other things, Meryl is a close friend.”
Do you think that Maks and Meryl are more than friends? Do you think Janel’s breakup had anything to do with her relationship with Val Chmerkovskiy?
