Smirnoff, Chmerkovskiy break up

Karina Smirnoff's publicist says the Ukrainian-born dancer has broken off her engagement to fellow dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

I can confirm that this is true, Smirnoff's representative told People magazine, without offering any further details about the split.

The Dancing with the Stars and Burn the Floor co-stars dated for about a year and announced their engagement last December.

Smirnoff previously dated actor and DWTS contestant Mario Lopez.
