With all of the sexy talent that makes up the cast of Dancing with the Stars, it is no wonder that a little scandal is ever-present on the show and sometimes even follows the stars off set. This list takes a look at the top 10 biggest scandals to rock the franchise!
10. Maksim Chmerkoviskiy is a Playboy
This former Dancing with the Stars pro has had a scandalously long line of hook ups. Chmerkoviskiy has romanced former partners Willa Ford, Erin Andrews, and Meryl Davis! He has dated his co-star Peta Murgatroyd and was even engaged to fellow dancing pro Karina Smirnoff! When Maksim was hooking up with Murgatroyd, she was already involved in another relationship with Australian DWTS dancer Damian Whitewood. Whitewood became aware of the affair and called Maks out, but Chmerkoviskiy didn’t respond. On season 18 of the show, when Maks got close with his partner Meryl Davis he was incredibly public about his adulation of her and commented during the filming of the show. But of course it wasn’t long before he’d moved on and rumors were flying about his relationship with Jennifer Lopez. In 2015, he rekindled his romance with Murgatroyd and the two are presently engaged to be married. Only time will tell if Peta has truly tamed this playboy!Photo by Broadimage/REX
