Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hope Solo is LYING ...

I Never Slapped Her

8/17/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is adamant ... he NEVER slapped Hope Solo across the face behind the scenes at "Dancing with the Stars" ... despite allegations she made in her new book.

TMZ has learned ... Maksim was absolutely shocked when he heard about the "completely false" story in Hope's book, "Solo: A Memoir of Hope" ... in which the Team USA soccer star claims Maksim pulled a Rick James while trying to put her head in the correct position for a dancing move.

The two were partners on "DWTS" in 2011.

Sources close to Maksim tell us ... he has no idea why Solo would publish such a false and defamatory statement and doesn't know why she would have such ill will towards him ... especially because they've had dinner several times since the show ended.

In fact, Hope JUST tweeted Maksim right before the Olympics, offering him free seats to one of the Team USA soccer games.

Hope's rep tells TMZ, she stands by what she wrote in her autobiography.

This chick really needs a publicist. I saw her in an interview yesterday morning and she came off as a conceited c u next tuesday. She really does not come off well at all.

Wasn't he that way with Brandy? He slapped her butt. I think these slaps weren't hard, though still not right. Perhaps Maxim is better off training dogs, than people.

Who the Hell is Khloe    

I really cannot stand her. She had so many SOB stories on dwts. Max apologize many times too. I did like her interview with costs either. She needs to shut up

Hope Solo is a very angry person who likes to be the center of attention. Her last name speaks volumes, she's a loner, big time.

She makes it pretty tough to like her. This is her big time to shine and she's whining and bitching about everyone and everything. Will be glad to see her fade away soon.

Probably something happened, but it was blown way out of proportion for the book. Like he wasn't as gentle as she thought he should've been when moving her head, and soon that escalated to a slap in her mind. Or he bumped her while they were working on a dance, and she read more into it than need be. Granted, she probably didn't think much of it or thought it was humorous since she continued to hang out with him after DWTS and even invited him to the Olympics.

She's baaaack    

That wouldn't surprise me if he did. It seems that according to Max it's his world and he just allows us to live in it. He has an award winning ego.

That doesn't surprise me. She had a real bad attitude when she was on Dancing with the Stars. I am appalled that she made it as long as she did. Personally, I did not like her at all - horrible attitude and all.

manbearpig does not hit women. although, manbearpig would engage in rough sex with hope if she likes it that way........

I have said from the start, this girl/man is a digusting pig, what she has said about drinking and sex at the Olympics, and now this. She sold her team out and now she's selling Max out. Anyone who watched DWTS saw she was a poor sport/looser and ugly inside and out.

Pretty easy solution here. If it is untrue, then sue.
