U.S. TV star Mario Lopez has laughed off rumours his girlfriend Karina Smirnoff has been having an affair with her Dancing With The Stars partner Mario.
Former Saved By The Bell actor Lopez reportedly began dating Smirnoff when they starred on the TV talent contest together in 2006.
And their relationship has been blighted by rumours that Smirnoff has been having an affair with her current dance partner, R+B singer Mario.
But Lopez insists there is nothing going on between the pair - and those kind of rumours are always prevalent during such a high profile programme.
He tells Us magazine, "People make up crazy stuff. I thought it was funny. I know the nature of the business and people talk.
"It's funny because those rumours always tend come up during the season."
