Amber Rose Calls ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Pro Val Chmerkovskiy ‘Bae’ as He Posts Pics of Her

What’s going on here? Amber Rose called Dancing With the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy “bae” in a post to Instagram on Friday, December 16, days after he shared a selfie of the pair together.

“When you said you were going to stay off social media until the New Year but Bae keeps posting hot ass pictures😩,” she captioned a reposted professional headshot from Chmerkovskiy’s account.

A few hours later, the outspoken model, 33, shared a sultry of herself showing off her ample cleavage in a black lacy top and black choker. She captioned the image with a simple kissy lips emoji.

Five days earlier, on Monday, December 12, Chmerkovskiy, 30, shared a selfie of the pair mugging for the camera with a simple rose emoji as a caption. And the pair don’t seem to mind speculation that they’re more than just friends offline either. On Friday, December 9, the duo held hands as they arrived at Hollywood hot spot Delilah for a dinner date.

Rose competed on season 23 of DWTS with Val’s brother Maksim Chmerkovkiy, and a source tells Us that she and Val got close, telling Us that they were initially “just friends, but it’s recently turned into more and they have been hooking up.”

A source close to Val, however, denies the romance and tells Us, “They are just friends.”

Rose, whose exes include Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, has not had any high-profile romances this past year, and in August, the talk show host gave a hint as to why, telling her guest, Kandi Burruss, “Listen, Kandi — men are so scared of me. I literally will go out on a date, and a guy’s like this [holds up her trembling hand], shaking. They’re f–king scared of me — they’re terrified of me.”

The witty social media star added, "You know what guys say to me? ‘What can I do for you that you can't do for yourself?’ And I'm like, 'If you go to the store and get a $1.50 card and write something nice in it, I would appreciate that.'"
