Hope Solo Claims Maksim Chmerkovskiy Slapped Her During 'DWTS'

During the thirteenth season of “Dancing With The Stars”, Olympian Hope Solo and her professional dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy made it to the Semi-Finals before being eliminated from the competition. Now that all of the buzz surrounding the Olympics is dying down and “DWTS” is heating up, Hope has released her book, “Solo: A Memoir Of Hope”.

In the book, she said, “He manhandled me in rehearsals from the start, pushing me, whacking my stomach, bending my arms roughly. I thought that was just how it went – how dancers worked with each other. But it kept getting worse. One day, Maks was trying to put me in a certain position and hit my stomach so hard with his open palm that I had a red handprint there for the rest of the day.”

After Maks allegedly slapped Hope, she said that the alphabet network offered her a new partner. She revealed, “He wanted my head in a specific position. To achieve that, he slapped me across the face. Hard.” She added that she declined to trade him in for a new partner because she “didn’t want to end his career.”

On Thursday, Maks tweeted, “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.”
