Ever since they won the mirror ball on season 18 of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Meryl and Maks haven’t been able to keep their hands off each other. But is it because of their love for each other or for their love for the money?!
Maks Chmerkovskiy won Dancing with the Stars for the first time ever this year, thanks to his chemistry with ice dancer, Meryl Davis. The two have been inseparable every since the win, and were even being super touchy at dinner in NYC on May 22. However, HollywoodLife.com has now learned exclusively that it may not be because of their strong attraction — even though they obviously have one!
Maks Chmerkovskiy & Meryl Davis’ PDA Reason
“They are running with the PDA and allowing people to keep talking about their relationship being something more because it is getting them more and more opportunities and pay days,” an insider close to the Dancing with the Stars pair told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Maks, 34, and Meryl, 27, were spotted hanging out together at Tao Downtown and an eyewitness told us that he actually couldn’t stop kissing her forehead, putting his arm around her, and just being all around touchy-feely. However, even that was a set up, we’ve now learned.
“One example of this is going to Tao and getting everyone to talk about them and their night helps their wallets. Having them seen flirting gets Tao press and money and them press and money. It’s a win win,” our insider added.
Meryl & Maks ‘Real’ Connection
However, we’re having a hard time believing it’s just for money — even body language expert Dr. Lillan Glass told us that it came off 100 percent genuine.
“The forehead kiss shows he is protective over her. He kissed her hand showing respect for her,” Dr. Glass told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Body language wise, the protectiveness and the respect they show and the mutual passion indicate this could be a very real romance between the two.”
So, why wouldn’t he just be kissing her lips or cheek — the forehead is so protective and sweet. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is it all for money? Let me know!
