Karina Smirnoff’s Engagement Over — Fiance Jason Adelman Calls It Off
Poor Karina. The super talented DWTS pro’s engagement to Jason was called off after just two short months, TMZ reports. Sources close to Jason told the publication it was because the pair had “different family values.”
That’s not all! The site reports that while Jason is not accusing Karina of cheating, “he was uncomfortable with the way she acted around other men … especially dancers.”
Karina’s rep responded to Jason’s nasty comments, calling them “disrespectful and insulting to the entire dance community,” adding that it is “nothing less than an attempted smear campaign from a malicious person.”
It sounds like Karina is totally taking the high road and has even reportedly already returned the ring.
Karina Smirnoff’s Past Engagements
This is not the first time that Karina has gone through a difficult breakup. The stunner was previously engaged to her fellow pro-dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy back in 2008, but their relationship was later called off in Sept. 2009. Two years later, she found love again with MLB pitcher, Brad Penny — however, their engagement ended in December 2011.
Karina definitely doesn’t seem to be letting her most recent breakup with Jason bring her down. TMZ reports that she is busy promoting her book, “We’re Just Not That Into You: Dating Disaster From the Trenches,” which as the title suggests is an open and honest book about her dating mishaps.
