Valentin Chmerkovskiy isn’t just known for being light on his feet and his dashing good looks. The Ukrainian born, younger brother of Latin–ballroom dance champion, choreographer and instructor Maksim has had his fair share of success on the hit American based dancing competition show, Dancing With The Stars.
The 32-year-old dancer and businessman is a co-owner of nine social dance studios under the brand Dance With Me, with six studios located in the New York metropolitan area alone. Between his successful career as an established dancer and running his dance studios, you’d think the handsome dancer would barely have any time for a relationship. However, when it comes to romancing the ladies, Val has been rather lucky in love, taking after his older brother Maks.
Let’s take a closer look at Val’s love life and see who he has been linked to over the years.
Chloe Bennet Dates Unknown
While it’s unknown precisely when Val and Bennet dated, the two have been romantically linked in the past. There is almost little to no record of the pair mentioning one another or even being photographed together. Chloe Wang, known professionally as Chloe Bennet, is an American actress and singer. She currently plays the role of Daisy Johnson in the ABC spy-fi series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Kelly Monaco 2012 – 2013
From 2012 until 2013, Val and actress Kelly Monaco were romantically linked and were said to have dated. The pair were rumored to have hooked up for four months starting in September of 2012 until the beginning of 2013. Monaco and Val’s relationship was supposedly sparked when Monaco appeared on Season 15 of Dancing With The Stars.
The pair were photographed occasionally by paparazzi, affectionately holding hands and laughing but the pair never confirmed the relationship or the breakup. Monaco is known for being an American model, actress and reality television personality, notably known for playing Sam McCall on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.

Janel Parrish 2014
Val’s next relationship was with 29-year-old actress Janel Parrish. Parrish and Val began dating after she left her boyfriend of one year to be with Val. The couple’s relationship only lasted for just two months and it was rumored that Val called things off with Parrish after he learned that she made the relationship more serious than Val wanted it to be.
Parrish is an American actress and singer. She’s best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the Freeform mystery drama series Pretty Little Liars. Parrish also was a contestant on DWTS taking 3rd place during the show’s 19th season.

Val’s next relationship would be his short fling with American model and actress, Amber Rose. Val and Amber began dating following her stint on DWTS. The pair were often photographed together by paparazzi and quickly became a popular fixture in the media during the course of their relationship. Despite becoming a favorite amongst fans, the pair broke up after just five months together.

American ballroom dancer and So You Think You Can Dance contestant Jenna Johnson began dating Val in February of 2016. The couple eventually broke up later that year in October.
After securing her spot as a professional dancer on DWTS, Val and Johnson rekindled their relationship in June 2017. Val and Johnson have been more than public about their relationship often posting one another on their social media pages. In June of 2018, DWTS got the shock of the summer when Val and Johnson announced that the two were engaged.
