The reason? Soccer star Hope is reportedly getting sick of Maks’ constant verbal abuse. This comes on the heels of Maskim’s recent outburst on the show.
“Hope has had it with Maks,” reveals an insider. “He’s such a jerk and constantly makes obnoxious comments to her like, ‘I’m not here to be your friend.’ It brings her down, and everyone can see it.”
The mag adds that Hope, 30, isn’t alone in her negative opinion of Maksim, 31. The insider claims no one on the show can stand him.
“He is by far the most hated person on the set,” the insider says. “No one wants to work with him, especially since he got his brother Valentin, a spot on the show. He thinks he has all this fame and power now.”
Another DWTS source agrees, adding: “Maks is so arrogant. Hope needs someone who encourages her and makes her feel like she can do it — but Maks does just the opposite.”
Interesting article as the two were photographed looking rather chummy just a week ago. In other Maks news, he tweeted that he is suffering from a broken toe. Maks tweeted on Friday: “One thing that could make this Halloween weekend better—-NOT having a broken toe! Got @TeddyV & @BigMervLA helping out!”
A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c. It will be interesting to see if Maks’ toe injury hinders him in any way.
