The tango is over for Maks and Peta.

Dancing with the Stars” real-life couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are kaput, after a ten-month relationship between the dance pros. Us Weekly reports that it was Chmerkovskiy who initiated the split, breaking up with her two weeks ago.

The reason for the breakup was that “He wasn’t feeling her anymore,” a source told the magazine. Of course, this wasn’t Chmerkovskiy’s first on-screen relationship with a “DWTS” star. He was previously engaged to fellow pro Karina Smirnoff, and was also linked to his Season 10 partner Erin Andrews.

Unfortunately, it sounds like things are now awkward for the workmates.

“It will be very heated between them when the [new] season starts in a few weeks,” the source added.

ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” returns for its 16th season on Monday, March 18.
