Dancing with the Stars professional Cheryl Burke and Las Vegas event promoter Cy Waits (the ex-boyfriend of Paris Hilton) are reportedly dating. The couple is said to have got very close, at least since his recent love split.
Waits split from socialite Hilton just last month after dating her for almost a year. However, Waits later revealed that he had wanted to end the couple’s relationship for months prior to that.
Life & Style magazine is reporting that Waits has become “smitten” with Cheryl Burke after the break-up of his relationship with Paris Hilton. He is even said to have attended the recent EDC electronics convention in Las Vegas with the dancer.
“He’s been seen several times with Cheryl. The pair has gotten very cozy in the past two weeks,” a source told “Life and Style.”
“Ever since Cy and Paris broke things off, he’s wasted no time getting back in the game. He’s been texting Cheryl non-stop. He seems smitten!”
Waits previously claimed that his split from Hilton was necessary in order to advance his own career. Ouch! That’s not a very gentlemanly reason to give for dumping your girlfriend, is it? And he’s certainly done some nifty footwork to take up with the dance pro so soon after the split if the rumors are true.
Last month, Burke dismissed suggestions that she and fellow Dancing with the Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy were romantically involved. Could that have been because she and Cy Waits were already in a relationship?
