Maksim Chmerkovskiy Is DONE Dancing With The Stars!

We've been hearing the rumors since last September, and they only seemed more based in fact when he dumped his co-star and girlfriend Peta Murgatroyd only a month before the new season is set to begin in March!

But yes, we now can confirm that it's official!

Maksim Chmerkovskiy will no longer appear on Dancing with the Stars!


According to sources with production of the reality competition, the 33-year-old dancer, who has been with the show since its second season in 2006, gave his two weeks notice to producers a few days ago, and confirmed he will not be back for the new season, as he is interested in pursuing new projects in the film and television world!

Can't say we blame him!

How many years can someone rip his shirt off and grind up against Kirstie Alley or Mel B, after all?!

Variety is the spice of life, and we're more than certain that we will see much more Maksim acting all sorts of SPICY somewhere else…and very soon!

What do U think?? Are U sad to see him go??

    Interesting, considering he was just on Extra a couple of days ago talking about looking forward to the next season and hoping he would get paired with a good star…

    You guys. . .consider the source! This is Perez Hilton's website. Julianne Hough was just on Wendy Williams' show. Wendy asked her about the rumor of Maks leaving. She said that he's leaving, but is contractually obligated to 3 more seasons on the show. So, he's leaving in almost 3 years! HELLO?!

    Re: PM2901 – He's contracted for two more seasons. There are 2 seasons per year so he only has 1 more year to fulfill his contract. Evidently he can break up the seasons as long as he comes back for two more shows.

    I could never even pronounce his name. Handsome, talent dancer. Good luck. See you soon near a movie threater or cable tv.

    IF this is true, he probably waited to see who they were pairing him up with. And he got another trainwreck. The producers are foolish to crap on their CASH COW each season. Maxim has many fans who watch the show just because of him. Honestly, I'm a big fan of the show but if Derek Hough follows anytime soon…..I have NO reason to watch.

    Very sad to see him go. Most exciting and best male dancer on the show. It is sad that since he is a big guy, he always got the "big girls" for partners, never the small, dainty girls who were better dancers-because they had to go to the shorter guys. They couldn't have the shorter male dancers dancing with the big, taller girls; it wouldn't look right. He deserves to have won several mirror balls.
