Dancing With The Stars professional dancer Mark Ballas and former American Idol contestant Pia Toscano have reportedly split up, this sad news is our Breakup Report of this week. Why is everybody breaking up so much these days? Did they rush into a relationship? Mark and Pia were a summer romance, wait no, a spring break romance but we sure enjoyed seeing them together while it lasted. Keep reading to know the details about this news plus check out some of their photos and video below.
I still remember watching that TMZ video where they caught Mark and Pia leaving the Gulfstream restaurant in Century City where they had their first date, according to People Magazine in March they reported Pia had a little crush on Mark for some time, Yeah Lady join the club! So she was so excited about Mark being in the NBC studio next to where she was, things got better when she found out their trailers were next to each other.
Maybe neither of them would make the first move so WWE to the rescue, Chris Jericho helped them out and introduced them Awwww! So cute! They headed off to their first date, Mark was seen wearing a black suit and black tie while Pia wore a stylish black dress and wore her hair down. PopEater said that after going out with Mark or before that she decided to allegedly break up with her boyfriend Carlos Nunez for Mark.
When asked, Pia denied about dating him, although she said he was a nice guy, Mark was on Ellen he also said she was a nice, gorgeous girl!!
“Well we went out with a group of people so it wasn’t really like a date,” Pia, 22, explained to OK!. “He’s a really nice guy. It’s funny, you go out one second and then you’re dating,” the Queens, New York native shared of the romance rumors. “It goes with the territory. It’s Hollywood.” Pia Said.
“I think she is fantastic, she’s very nice,” he added. “She is a gorgeous girl.” Mark said.
Then Pia was invited to performed on a DWTS Elimination night and while she performed Mark and Karina Smirnoff danced, just days after that the DailyMail revealed some pictures of them. In one of those Mark was caressing her derriere, I don’t know about you but that is not something “friends” do so it was more evidence about their boyfriend/girlfriend relationship.
That was all really nice and wonderful until on May 13th they reportedly split up or decided not to take things to the next level. On that day Pia said…
“You know, he is so busy and I am so busy, we really are just friends! He is a wonderful person, who comes from a wonderful family! I’m really rooting for him…”
