Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are still kissing, and they were caught at a Palm Springs, California resort after their Dancing with the Stars elimination.
The 38-year-old Australian professional dancer and 51-year-old Shark Tank personality also locked lips during their recent performance and explain that it was part of dance choreography, according to Us Weekly.
“It was just part of the dance!” Johnson said before admitting, “We just thought, ‘Let’s see how we feel on the night,’ and that’s what we did. It took me by surprise because I didn’t know if he was going to do it or not.”
Robert Herjavec also downplayed the passionate moment, telling the magazine, “We’re professional dancers, we were just in the moment … I’m just creating beautiful moments for the audience!” And what a great moment that was.
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson kissing on the show is nothing new, but they have taken things outside DWTS. They are partnered on season 20 of the ABC reality competition, and first sparked dating rumors at the premiere after party in March.
Even so, they were seen kissing in Palm Springs after they were eliminated on Dancing with the Stars, according to Daily Mail.
The pair dodged questions about their romance in early April, but Robert Herjavec later confessed he and Johnson share more than dancing.
Johnson and Herjavec kissed during their contemporary routine to “Champagne Kisses” by Jessie Ware, and earned a 33 with their performance. The pair have done well in competition, but are one of the lower-scoring couples who remain on the program.
Herjavec recently split from his wife Diane Plese after 24 years of marriage.
As previously reported by News OXY, Robert and Kym came clean about their relationship and have shared a lot more than just Dancing with the Stars. Many people already speculated that the Shark Tank personality was already dating the Australian dancer.
“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!”
And TV viewers are still curious as to why Herjavec started getting closer to Kym Johnson while he was still married to his wife. 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.”
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are still kissing on the show, but now they say it’s part of the dance routine. When they’re not on the show, they are seen kissing during a weekend getaway, notes The Hollywood Gossip.
