Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec recently confirmed that he is divorcing his wife after 15 years of marriage, leading to rumors that Herjavec is leaving his wife for Dancing with the Stars pro Kym Johnson.
While Herjavec didn’t address the gossip, it’s likely that the speculation began after he posted a photo on his Twitter account showing him on board his private jet — Kym was with him on the flight from L.A. to New York.

The Canadian business tycoon is indeed spending time with Kym, but that’s because he is practicing his dance moves for the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. Robert is one of the celebrities who will be dancing on DWTS Season 20, so spending hours with Kym,his pro-partner, is necessary. The 10th anniversary season of the ballroom dance competition premieres on March 16 on ABC — all of the celebs are practicing ’round the clock.
According to TMZ,Robert and his wife of 15 years, Diane Plese, are legally separated and the divorce will be final soon. The couple has three children together — daughters Caprice and Skye, and son Brendan. The Shark Tank star tells TMZ that he wishes for “love and peace” for his family during the transition from marriage to divorce.

The Shark Tank star and business mogul is worth in the range of $200 million, so the divorce settlement is likely to be a hefty one. According to the Daily Mail, Herjavec’s wife will remain in the couple’s Canadian mansion home with their three children. The magnificent home was featured on both MTV Cribs and How’d You Get So Rich, hosted by the late Joan Rivers.
The home in Canada is not the only property the couple owns —Herjavec and his wife have property in the U.S., several vacation homes, a private jet, and luxury automobiles to split up.
Terms of the Robert Herjavec’s divorce settlement have not been made public at this time. Hopefully his time on Dancing with the Stars will not spur more rumors about his divorce, so his family can move forward.
“Human relationships are so difficult… I wish nothing but love and peace for our family as we move forward from this.”
Watch Robert Herjavec do his best to win the mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars starting March 16 on ABC.
