Karina Smirnoff and Mario: Not Dating!

by at . Comments

That's Mario, the R&B singer who uses only his first name (real name Mario Dewar Barrett), and not Mario Lopez, former Saved By the Bell Star.

Karina Smirnoff is partnering with the former on Dancing With the Stars this season. Three seasons ago, she partnered with Mario Lopez.

Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff fell in love and are still dating as a result of that season of Dancing With the Stars. All caught up?

The DWTS pro and certified cutie responded this week to rumors that she is hooking up with her current partner, the R&B singer Mario.

"We have a completely professional relationship," Karina Smirnoff said. "I have a lot of respect for Mario. He is a great person."

The New York Post reported this week that the current DWTS iteration of Mario and Karina were "making out by the valet with their hands all over each other" at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. Juicy gossip!

Mario's rep denies the claim, saying "this did not happen."

But a source close to the talented singer insists "there is definitely chemistry and a flirtation between the two." Then again, it is dancing.

Ah, what would Dancing With the Stars be without constant hookup rumors? Or the incredibly attractive and somehow still chaste Julianne Hough?
