Hope Solo is accusing her former Dancing With The Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of slapping her during their time together on the show. They shared time together during the show’s thirteenth season, but it wasn’t all rosy between the two, according to her.
In her new book, Solo: A Memoir Of Hope, she said, “He manhandled me in rehearsals from the start, pushing me, whacking my stomach, bending my arms roughly.”
She went on to write, “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.”
She said, “He wanted my head in a specific position. To achieve that, he slapped me across the face. Hard.”
Maks took to Twitter to say, “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.”
Do you really think Maks slapped Hope? If so, why wouldn’t she speak up about it? What do you think?
