In her new book, Solo: A Memoir of Hope, the US soccer star accuses her former dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiyof becoming physically aggressive during a Season 11 rehearsal. According to Solo, Chmerkovskiy, 32, “slapped” her “hard” on the face while trying to correct one of her dance moves.”He manhandled me in rehearsals from the start, pushing me, whacking my stomach, bending my arms roughly One day, Maks was trying to put me in a certain position and hit my stomach so hard with his open palm that I had a red handprint there for the rest of the day.” The Ukrainian-born Chmerkovskiy responded with a tweet,  “Always hated hypocrites and liars, but when someone is both and an opportunist, I just feel bad for them,” he wrote. “Can’t win at someone’s expense.” Clearly a case of he said, he said. -TO
