Robert Herjavec is multitasking this season by making deals on Shark Tank and moves on the Dancing with the Stars’ dance floor.
Teaching him to rumba, salsa, and waltz is professional dancer Kym Johnson. There has been much speculation that Herjavec is romancing his DWTS’ partner. The pair frequently posts pictures of themselves on private jets, fast cars and embracing in the ballroom. After their latest performance on the show, where the two did the rumba to Ellie Goulding’s “How Long Will I Love You,” Herjavec told E!News:
I felt it, I felt it. I thought it was beautiful, I really did. The idea of somebody like me, after six weeks, being able to perform something that beautiful with someone this beautiful, it just takes my breath away.
So far, both parties have neither denied, nor confirmed the gossip. In an interview with People magazine, when they asked Herjavec if the PDA was just for the cameras, he replied, “I don’t do anything for publicity. From the moment I met her, I love hanging out with her. We are having a great time.”
Besides their intense chemistry on the dance floor, the pair hang out outside of the show. What seemed to confirm the rumors that they are an item was the video TMZ got of them kissing, shown below.
This possible new romance comes right after Herjavec announced his legal separation from his wife of 25 years, Diane Plese. Herjavec, who has three children with Plese, told People that he contemplated suicide because of his marital woes. “I just wanted to end it. It’s been a terribly difficult year. We were great parents and a great team, but over time we drifted apart,” he said.
