'DWTS' Couple Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson Really Are 'Madly In Love'
By Antoinette Bueno
Though Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec and his partner Kym Johnson were eliminated on Tuesday night's Dancing With the Stars, turns out they've found something better than the coveted Mirror Ball trophy -- love!
The reported couple have remained tight-lipped about their romance all season long. But on their last episode, viewers saw adorable footage from their rehearsals, when the 51-year-old multimillionaire tech mogul was caught whispering, "I love you," to the 38-year-old dancing pro.
A source tells ET that the two have been dating since the beginning of the show, and that they "are inseparable and madly in love."
But despite their exciting new romance, Herjavec evaded the question when DWTS host Tom Bergeron pressed him on Tuesday night's episode.
"I've known Kym, we've been friends for years, and Robert, you may not have won the Mirror Ball trophy but I'm suspecting you've won someone's heart," Bergeron said.
"Tom, I'm not sure I feel that way about you," the businessman joked back.
The new relationship is coming at a good time in Herjavec's life -- in March, he confirmed that he split from his wife of 24 years, Diane Plese, and admitted he felt suicidal after their breakup. "I just wanted to end it," he toldPeopleabout a scary incident last July when he contemplated jumping off the balcony of his Toronto hotel room. "It's been a terribly difficult year."
In March, ET Canada caught up with the newly eliminated couple, when Herjavec acknowledged his trying year and the great timing of his DWTS gig alongside Johnson.
"This couldn't come at a better time in my life for me, right?" he said. "You know, I'm just trying to stay positive and Kym's yelling at me a lot, so that's a little negative, but I'm getting used to it," he joked.
