Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy–the “Dancing with the Stars” winners–said they’re not dating amid fervent rumors about the pair.

“Are you all boyfriend and girlfriend, or lovers or anything?” Wendy Williams asked the two.

Davis replied, “We’re not dating.” She added, “We like to keep the personal lives personal.”

A source told E! News: “In truth, there is no romance there. They’re good friends, but nothing more. The hype about it has been fun, but it’s not real.” 

Another source told Us magazine: “They had a great time (in NYC) but honestly they aren’t dating yet … Maks is that affectionate with all women. He always acts like that, it’s how he is, very touchy feely. He genuinely adores her but it is not dating yet.” 

AP update:

LOS ANGELES (AP) – It’s made of plastic and, well, a little on the cheesy side. But Maks Chmerkovskiy says he’s proud to finally get his hands on it.

“It” – is the mirrorball trophy awarded to the “Dancing With the Stars” winner – and for the first time ever, Maks has won it. He teamed up with Olympic skater Meryl Davis to score the win last night, capping season 18 of the ABC ballroom competition.

Chmerkovskiy said while he knows the trophy isn’t much to look at, “it means so much” for him to have won it. He says what makes it sweeter is winning it with Davis – saying that was “a dream come true.”

In the bedlam after the announcement, host Tom Bergeron had to look around to find the triumphant couple to hand them the trophy before the credits rolled and the show went off the air.
