'Dancing' Couple Karina Smirnoff & Maksim Chmerkovskiy Split

'Dancing with the Stars' Karina Smirnoff (photosKarina Smirnoff photos) and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be performing their next dances solo.

The couple has split up after nearly a year of dating and called off their engagement. The two 'Dancing' pros first got together six months after Smirnoff and Mario Lopez went their separate ways following a two-year relationship.

"I am confirming that they did indeed break up," says Karina's publicist while Maksim admits "it's a little rough right now."

It's not clear what led to the split, since they were reported to be planning a June 2010 wedding as recently as last week.

"The only thing we've decided on is next year in June," Smirnoff said at the time.

"We were supposed to pick the place, but we've never actually had the time to go. We're not rushing. As long as we're together, tying the knot is a plus, it's something extra."

Smirnoff joined the show in season three while Chmerkovskiy has been on it since the second season. On the upcoming season, he will be paired up with actress Debi Mazar and Karina with Aaron Carter.
