Janel doesn’t waste any time! Just seven hours after ex Payson Lewis announced their split on Instagram, Janel took to the site to share a pic of herself and Val on a double date with his brother, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Meryl Davis!
Is Janel Parrish, 25, already moving on with new man? It certainly looks like it, based on this revealing new picture of the Pretty Little Liars star cozying up to dancing partner Val Chmerkovskiy, 28, during a dinner date with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 34, and Meryl Davis, 27!
Janel Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy Date With Maks & Meryl After Payson Lewis Split
Poor Payson Lewis! Janel posted this pic a mere seven hours after her ex mourned the demise of their relationship in a heartrending Instagram post — that’s gotta hurt.
In the photo, Janel is sitting next to Val and grinning from ear to ear — she definitely doesn’t look like a girl who just broke up with her boyfriend! She captioned the pic: “So much happy @iamvalc @meryledavis @maksimc@sergeonik @hollywoodmerv“.
We’ve all witnessed the sparks flying between Janel and Val on DWTS this season, so now we can’t help but wonder whether they’re taking their romance off screen. But is it too soon for Janel to start seeing someone new?
Janel Parrish & Payson Lewis Break Up — Over Val Chmerkovskiy?
Payson took to his Instagram on Oct. 16 to announce his sad split from Janel. He posted a pic of himself with Janel, along with this absolutely heartbreaking caption: “All good things must come to an end. 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 #teamjanel”.
Val and Janel have been playing coy about their relationship but he opened up about their buzzed-about backstage kiss when the duo took a lie detector test on Access Hollywood Live on Oct. 16. “Her face is just so small and her lips are so big that anywhere I’m going to kiss is going to land on her lips,” he said. He sounds smitten to us!
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised to see Janel out with Val so soon after her split? Do you think Janel should date Val or is it too soon? Let us know!
