While Amber Rose and Dancing With the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy have been rumored to be dating, a new report claims that they are just friends.
Rumors began swirling that Rose and Chmerkovskiy were at least casually dating when they both posted photos on Instagram together at her 33rd birthday party over the weekend. But a new source told Entertainment Tonight that Chmerkovskiy is actually dating fellow DWTS dancer Jenna Johnson.

"Val and Amber are not dating," the insider said. "He just loves the attention, and that's why he doesn't care if the media spreads those rumors."
The publication asked Chmerkovskiy directly about the dating rumors, to which he said, "I can't control what people think. I live my life and I try to live it, you know, the way I want to live it."
He added, "I'd make a cute couple with a lot of people, you know what I'm sayin'?"
Rose was a contestant on this season of Dancing With the Stars, dancing with Chmerkovskiy's brother, Maks Chmerkovskiy. They were eliminated from the competition last week, coming in ninth place overall.
The model admitted after she was eliminated that she might have had regrets about doing Dancing With the Stars in the first place.
"I'm not really good with a lot of attention. I probably shouldn't have done this show, but whatever," she admitted E! News last Monday. "I'm just not good with a lot of eyes on me and a lot of 'Oh, you're doing great, everything's good...'"
Rose reportedly had difficulties with the show from the very first week, according to her partner, Maks.
The pro said that on their third day of rehearsal, Rose said, "'I don't know, Maks. I don't know man, this is just so hard. Tell me this is the hardest dance we'll ever have to do.' So I immediately just lost my mind and I just lost a couple years of my life...You know what, I didn't even answer."
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
