The couple have confirmed they are no longer together, yet giving no single reason for their split.
It's over. The love relationship of Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff has come to an end, it's been confirmed.
A representative for Karina confirmed the couple's split to E! News, saying "Karina has parted ways with her two-year relationship with Mario Lopez. The relationship wasn't heading in the right direction." As for Mario, he issued his own statement about his split from the dancer. Through his representative he said, "Karina and I have the utmost respect for each other. She is a phenomenal and talented woman. I support her always and feel blessed to have her in my life."
Mario and Karina began dating in 2006 when they were partnered together on the third season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." Neither of them confirmed they were an item though. Way back in April, the pair were hit with break up rumors which were soon laid to rest by Karina who insisted "Mario and I are fine. Everything's good. It's all good."
Mario and Karina were last seen frolicking in Miami last month.
