Val Chmerkovskiy has confirmed his split from Amber Rose.
The 30-year-old professional dancer took to Instagram on Sunday (12.02.17) to share the heart breaking news with his fans, just five months into his relationship with the 33-year-old model.
Despite their split, the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ professional – who met Amber when she performed on the show last year and was paired with his brother Maksim – believes she blonde beauty is "an amazing woman" and "a loving human".
Posting a picture of a letter on the photo sharing website, Val said: "I’m addressing this topic solely in the hopes that y’all will stop spamming my posts. We decided to end our relationship a week ago, and did so with humility and understanding.
"She’s an amazing woman that I feel very lucky to have gotten to know and love. An amazing mother, an awesome friend, a loving human period. Reserved, poised, and loyal. To stress that to the more common folk ‘she loyal af.’ (sic)"
The star then went on to state that the couple lead "very different lives" which caused the split.
He continued: "We both lead very different lives and unfortunately it didn’t work out between us, but what does that even mean? Maybe it worked out perfectly."
Val closed his note by praising Amber – who has three-year-old son Sebastian with her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa – as an "incredible mother" for whom he will "always have her back".
He said: "I will continue to support her, praise her, and defend her against any narrow minded individual that dares to question her integrity as a woman, a friend, and most importantly the INCREDIBLE MOTHER THAT SHE IS TO HER SON! It’s hard to do it all by yourself especially while the world stares and judges..but she does. every single day…. for that alone I’ll always have her back. (sic)"
