Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson have shared a lot more than just Dancing with the Stars. Herjavec, 51, and Johnson, 38, unleashed the explosive revelations on Monday during an interview on Good Morning America, according to The Inquisitr.
Many people already speculated that the Shark Tank personality was already dating the Australian dancer. Robert gave Kym praises when speaking to ABC correspondent Rachel Smith.
“She’s a great dancer and she’s become a great friend. It’s more than just the dancing. I think we just get along great!”
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson sparked speculation after cozying up at the ABC reality competition’s premiere after-party in March. The pair previously addressed dating rumors by coyly saying they are “too busy dancing” to pay attention to such reports, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry Entertainment News.
Herjavec and Johnson have done well in competition, scoring a 28 with a cha-cha in week one, a 28 with a foxtrot in week two, a 29 with a rumba in week three and a 34 with a waltz this week.
TV viewers are now curious to know if he’s still married to wife Diane Plese. One viewer tweeted their disappointment.
“Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are using the ABC reality show as a match dating game. For someone who’s still married, he just couldn’t wait until after the divorce papers.”
The two have been separated since July 2014 and are currently going through a divorce. Robert met Diane long before he became a multi-millionaire, and before they got married. They have three children.
In the midst of all this, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson have been spotted out sharing little kisses. They just smile at each other whenever the paparazzi ask about the status of their relationship.
Since joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars, Robert said he’s in a much happier place. When Herjavec separated from his wife of 25 years, he was contemplating suicide.
“I just wanted to end it … It’s been a terribly difficult year. We were great parents and a great team, but over time we drifted apart … I was hollow and broken.”
Herjavec said the breaking point for him was when his children weren’t speaking to him at the beginning of the split.
“Everyone has their kryptonite. For me, it was my kids. It took me to a place I never thought I would go.”
As for how he felt about DWTS and girlfriend Kym Johnson, he said everyone has been supportive.
“The entire cast and crew of Dancing with the Stars is evolving into an extended family and is incredibly supportive. Kym has become a great friend, and it is so much fun to be able to share this experience with her.”
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson appear to be in love, and that’s going to make the dancing competition a bit more interesting, notes Daily Mail. You can watch them on Dancing with the Stars each Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
