Despite rumors he's quitting ... TMZ has learned, "Dancing with the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is COMING BACK TO THE SHOW -- and we got the video to prove it!!!

Maksim touched down in LAX yesterday for his first practice -- he didn't say much ... but as soon as he landed, guy made a beeline for an L.A. dance studio ... where he met with Melissa Gilbert -- one of the stars on the upcoming season.

TMZ broke the story ... Sherri Shepherd and Heather Locklear's ex Jack Wagner are also set to compete on the show.

Season 14 is scheduled to kick off next month.

I think it's time for Maks to take a break. His attitude always stinks even if he is a good dancer

Agreed...another person riding off Whitney.
Cassie ask Diddy why did he call everybody to come to Clive pre gram party while Whitney's body was 4 floors above your head. Wow, you was there too!!
Not supporting anyone who was at the Clive Davis party. And ask why Diddy almost died a day later, I knew that was Whitney's doing.

Can you stop saying Heather Locklear's ex? Jack Wagner made a name for himself in Hollwood. He is not famous because he dated HL.

I love to watch him dance, but his attitude - not the best at any time - last season was too big headed. I started skipping over him.
