Are Janel Parrish And Val Chmerkovskiy Dating?

Kobby Dagan /

Dancing With the Stars partners Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy have shown major chemistry on the dance floor — but are they carrying on a romance in real life, or is it just hype for the show?

Janel broke up with her boyfriend Payson Lewis just last week, which makes us wonder if it’s because of her relationship with Val.

Val recently made some comments on the show about his chemistry with Janel. “There’s an attraction between us too. I don’t know, I think nature just made it work that way,” he said. “It can’t be phrased in a byte. I’m sorry, America.”

It seems that Janel’s break-up is for real. “All good things must come to an end,” Payson wrote on Instagram along with a photo of Janel and him. “Thank you for the happiest year and a half of my life. I will always love you @janelparrish and I wish you nothing but the best. Forever #teamjeanel”.

Just a few hours later, Janel posted an Instagram photo of her on what seems to be a double date with Val and his brother Maksim. Check out the video to see if you think they look like a couple!

There definitely seems to be something going on between Janel and Val — but do you think Val is only acting this way for the cameras so that he can win Dancing With the Stars, the way his brother did?
