The couple have been together for several years and even competed against each other in the competition at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. They were keeping their relationship on the “down low” throughout the competition. White spoke to the Detroit Free Press about it back in 2010, saying:

We don’t really talk about it. As an ice dancer, we take our on-ice relationships so seriously, and that’s really the way we like to go about it. (Davis and I) are just presenting ourselves as a team, and all the rest of that (with Belbin) can wait for later.

Meryl and I are oftentimes trying to portray people who are in love. We’ve always been great friends, and we have a special relationship, but we’ve never been romantically involved.

  1. Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be at the internet the easiest thing to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider concerns that
    they just don’t recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire thing
    without having side effect , other folks could take a signal.
