Showmances are pretty common on Dancing With The Stars. Every year, rumors fly. But despite the rumors you’ve heard this year, Olivia Jade and Val Chmerkovskiy are not having a torrid affair. In fact, the 22-year-old influencer recently shut those down herself.
No one is exactly sure where this rumor began, but you can imagine how these things begin. Everyone on the internet loves to talk.
Olivia Jade shuts down any rumors of an affair between her and Val Chmerkovskiy
“Hey guys, I just wanna clear the air before this goes any further or this video blows up anymore,” Olivia Jade said in a TikTok over the weekend. “First of all, the woman that posted it blocked me. Someone had to send me this video. I’m just going to be super blunt and straight up, and just say that Val and I are not hooking up. We’ve never hooked up. This is a complete rumor. We are genuinely good friends and I adore his wife.”
The young influencer is familiar with the scandal, but this rumor seems to be of a whole new breed. Regardless, she’s not here to listen to anyone that continues to spread the rumor.
“It’s just a dance show and we’re just friends. I don’t know why everything has to be something, but I’ve already obviously seen a ton of negative comments,” she continued in the TikTok video, also calling out the user who posted — and has now deleted — the original video,” Olivia Jade continued. “And I’d get it if it was true, but it’s not, so let’s end this here and let’s f–king dance and have fun on this show, and not create lies especially when you also have almost 400k followers. It’s not cool.”
In case you don’t know much about Val Chmerkovskiy, he’s 35 and hails from Ukraine originally. He first appeared as a pro dancer in Season 13. In 2019, he married his DWTS castmate, Jenna Johnson. She’s competing with JoJo Siwa this year.
Jenna admitted that marriage can be challenging during competition season, but it doesn’t really seem like she’s concerned about Val having an affair with 22-year-old Olivia Jade. In fact, Jenna and Val often discuss finally starting a family when the timing is right.
So why did these rumors crop up in the first place?
Olivia Jade was DWTS Season 30’s controversial contestant. She’s here to prove that she’s not just a spoiled rich girl and feels grateful for her time on the show.
“I’m fine, but I think what I was trying to get out was that I have the last few years just been, like, feeling a little bit shameful, so it’s really like having a new sense of confidence, obviously comes a lot from Val and being in the show, and I’m just really grateful,” she said after breaking down in an emotional interview with ET.
And of course, Val was there to comfort her. Some DWTS fans seemingly read into this as something more than just friendly or brotherly.
Don’t forget that Dancing With The Stars Grease Night kicks off tonight at 8 PM. Tune in and catch all the action.
