Maksim revealed to Us Weekly about why he decided to return to DWTS after sitting out two seasons. I finished, dillydallied for a while, and I was like, “I want to move a little! But everyone is entitled to their own insanity.”On that nasty Hope Solo rumor (she accused Maks of being rough with her).
I felt betrayed.”On partner-pro romances, Maksim says there was never any truth to him dating Meryl Davis. It got to the point where we didn’t even know how to continue saying, “No, we’re not dating.” The funny thing is, I’m engaged, I have a baby coming, and there are still people who think Maks and Meryl can be a thing! I’m a very easy person when it comes to not giving f–ks.
He said he has made it clear to friends that he was never physically abusive to the Olympic champion, despite Hope's claims against him in her controversial memoir, "Solo: A Memoir of Hope." "Maks is one of the nicest guys in the world.
This is 100 percent not true," a source close to the show told me.
Maksim was absolutely shocked when he heard about the "completely false" story in Hope's book, "Solo: A Memoir of Hope" ... he has no idea why Solo would publish such a false and defamatory statement and doesn't know why she would have such ill will towards him ...
In fact, Hope JUST tweeted Maksim right before the Olympics, offering him free seats to one of the Team USA soccer games.
