Us Weekly records a source as saying basically the same thing.

Both of their schedules were too crazy. They had different priorities.

4. Simpson’s Partner on Dancing With the Stars Was Very Flirty With the Singer

When Simpson first appeared on Dancing With the Stars this season, his partner Witney Carson was thrilled. She asked him right off the bat if he was single and was very flirty with him throughout the season. The two were grilled by co-host Erin Andrews about their flirtation and might as well have said that Simpson and Carson should be dating. Towards the end of Simpson’s run on the show, he talked about how “distracting” Carson can be to look at during rehearsals.
