Oh no! Maksim Chmerkovskiy was forced to let Heather Morris do her post-elimination ‘GMA’ interview solo on April 25 after a personal emergency came up unexpectedly. Is everyone OK? Here’s what we know.
“They had some sort of run-in with, you know, some man near their house trying to break in, but the police were there,” Heather Morris, 30, revealed on Good Morning America after the anchors asked where her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 37, was. “They took care of it. They’re safe and Peta’s OK. That’s the most important thing, making sure she’s calm.”

How awful. We’re so glad Maks, Peta Murgatroyd, 30, and their 3-month-old baby boy, Shai, are OK. This terrifying situation comes just hours after Maks and Heather were shockingly voted off Dancing with the Stars after scoring all perfect 10s on the April 24 episode, the first pair to do so this season. After Heather and Maks were voted off, the crowd couldn’t stop booing. Heather was by far one of the best dancers of the season. She was one of Beyonce’s back-up dancers once upon a time!
Despite the jaw-dropping elimination, the Glee star is staying positive and choosing to look on the bright side. “You know, it’s like a weird thing because you know it’s reality television and so many things can go wrong and you’re trying to be hopeful the whole time and just have a really great experience, so I was expecting it to go either way,” Heather said on GMA. “I was just happy to be there. When it happened, I was just like, you know, it is what it is and things will happen as they may. You know, I just had a great time.”
