Karina Smirnoff and her fiance Jason Adelman have called it quits. It was only a couple of months ago when the couple announced their plans to marry.
E! News reports that Adelman proposed to Karina Smirnoff back in January. He gave her a Martin Katz emerald cut diamond ring that weighed in at just under five carats. The cost of such a piece of jewelry runs between $100,000 and $300,000.
Karina Smirnoff is best known for her Dancing With the Stars roles as pro dancer and dancing coach. Last season she competed in unison with UFC fighter Randy Couture, but the pair was eliminated during their third week of competition. She isn’t participating in season 20 of the show.

Former Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerovskiy was once engaged to Karina Smirnoff. Their engagement lasted about a year. She was also engaged to baseball star Brad Penny. That means this is the third broken engagement for Karina Smirnoff. What’s that all about?
Smirnoff hasn’t spoken out about her broken engagement. She appeared on The Heidi & Frank Show–a radio show–on Wednesday, but didn’t mention the split.
She captioned her post, “Had so much fun on @HeidiandFrank just now! What an amazing fun show! @frankArmy @HeidiHamilton @955KLOS #werejustnotthatintoyou.”
TMZ reports that Jason Adelman claims he broke his engagement with Karina Smirnoff because the two have “different family values.”
A rep for Karina Smirnoff reportedly told TMZ that Adelman’s comments are “disrespectful and insulting to the entire dance community” and it’s “nothing less than an attempted smear campaign from a malicious person.”
Regardless of the why or the how, it sounds like Karina Smirnoff and Jason Adelman are no longer engaged. Hopefully the two will go on to find love elsewhere if they couldn’t make their relationship with one another work.
