Hope Solo: Maksim Chmerkovskiy SLAPPED Me on Dancing With the Stars!

by at . Comments

Hope Solo claims in her new memoir, Solo: A Memoir of Hope, that Maksim Chmerkovskiy slapped her across the face on Dancing With the Stars in 2011.

Maksim is reportedly adamant that this did NOT occur and shocked that the slap story somehow made it into the U.S. women's soccer team goaltender's book.

In it, she says Chmerkovskiy slapped her hard during a tense rehearsal while trying to put her head in the correct position for a dancing move. You buy it?

The two were partners who famously clashed on the show, but this was mostly attributed at the time to them each being intense competitors and athletes.

They've had dinner several times since the show, and she tweeted to Maks before the Olympics, offering him free tickets (Hope led the U.S. to gold, as usual).

Maks says he has no idea why Hope would publish such a false, defamatory statement and posted a statement on Twitter Thursday without naming names:

“Always hated hypocrites and liars… but when someone is both AND an opportunist, I just feel bad for them. Can’t win at someone’s expense,” he wrote.

Is it possible that she exaggerated an incident for her book just to make splashy headlines? Tell us what you think in the comments below.


I just can't buy her remark-she may easily have a worse temper than Max is given credit for because I have never read that just because you are in the Olympics doesn't mean you are a polite quiet person-since they are super competetive and that is how they get there!


i think their both forceful people and really do you think DWTS would put up with abusive teachers? it would have been handled since their recording all the time, not saying slapping a woman/man is ok! but seems they would have fired him for doing so


I actually do mean it. Max has a temper, you can tell how he forces himself to keep quiet. He is so full of himself, that he thinks everyone should be thank full they are his partner.


I don't buy it !!!! Only in Hollywood when someone think she or he is a celebrity, they think their shits don't stink, making allegation and waited for sometime until the right moment then dropped the bomb, it's just so lame !
Shame on you Solo !!


Who cares. This show is so lame


I don't believe it!


In my opinion, he didn't slap her hard enough or often enough. Fuck this publicity seeking bitch!


Seriously...Dont they film all of the rehearsals? So wouldnt it have come out then? LIAR AND FAME HUNGRY IN MY OPINION!!!


Max is an arrogant..big mouth russian piece of s...t.
The way he spoke to the judge(the old guy)it was horrible....
he thinks is all that.....he's a nobody ...
and the way he treats the females on that show is horrendus....
