There are reports coming from Radar Online that Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff and Arie Luyendyk Jr. are now romantically involved. The rumors are flying that the Bachelorette finalist met Karina on September 13, 2012 at a party in Los Angeles and supposedly were flirting up a storm and are now dating. But is this really true? Gossip Cop says no.
First off, Arie had tweeted last week that he was heading to see Dancing with the Stars with pal Jef Holm. It may have looked like he was there to see Karina. However, he was there to support fellow race car driver, Helio Castroneves. He was also seen snapping photos with many of the pro dancers, including Karina after the show. According to Gossip Cop, it stopped right there. There is no truth to these dating rumors whatsoever.
It just goes to show that you can’t put much faith in these magazine or online sites that put two people together just because they are seen laughing and chatting for a few minutes. If something does develop in the future, you can be sure that photos will eventually show up revealing more intimate moments. In the meantime, Karina can be seen doing the cha cha with Apolo Anton Ohno each week on the ballroom floor, while Arie is focusing on his racing career.
Even though this rumor doesn’t seem to be true, what do you think of the pairing of Karina Smirnoff and Arie Luyendyk Jr.? Would they make a good couple?
