"Val and Amber are not dating," the source tells ET, adding that Chmerkovskiy has been quietly dating fellow DWTS dancer Jenna Johnson. "He just loves the attention, and that's why he doesn't care if the media spreads those rumors."
Chmerkovskiy himself played coy when ET asked him about the possible romance just last night, after the DWTS live show.
"I can't control what people think," the 30-year-old Ukrainian dancer said. "I live my life and I try to live it, you know, the way I want to live it."
"I'd make a cute couple with a lot of people, you know what I'm sayin'?" he added.
