Even before their Dancing with the Stars pairing, Big Time Rush’s James Maslow and professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd were rumored to be a couple, because of this picture taken on February 4.
In an exclusive interview with RumorFix, James says, “We had met once before. We’ve got a bunch of friends and we had gone out to dinner and we were in West Hollywood and, of course, the paparazzi caught us on the way out. And that’s where the rumors started.”
James has been rehearsing with Peta for two weeks now and he says, “She’s a really cool girl. We’re there with the same intention and that’s to dance. We’re competitive — we want to compete and do well and hopefully win the show.”
So the 23-year-old stud says, “We don’t want to complicate that at this moment and add dating to the long list of work to do.”
Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
