Karina Smirnoff and Brad Penny: It's Over!

by at . Comments

Karina Smirnoff and Brad Penny have called off their engagement.

The Dancing With the Stars pro, 30, and the Major League Baseball pitcher, 33, have gone their separate ways after more than two years together, E! confirms.

"They're just different people," a source says of the pair, who began dating in October '09 after they first met through former DWTS contestant Chuck Lidell.

There have been signs of potential problems for months now.

Smirnoff said she decided to postpone her January 2012 wedding to focus on DWTS, even as she praised Brad as a man who supports and loves her unconditionally.

Yet during her emotional run to Karina's first Dancing With the Stars title with partner J.R. Martinez, she never referred to Penny nor was he spotted in the audience.

Karina was also engaged to co-star Maksim Chmerkovskiy before meeting Penny. No reason was given for this split, but we wish them the best in this difficult time.
