Val Chmerkovskiy is playing coy about romance rumors linking him to Amber Rose.

The Dancing With the Stars pro -- whose brother, Maksim, was Rose's partner on this season of the reality dancing competition series -- shared some steamy snapshots with the TV personality taken during her 33rd birthday over the weekend.

However, Chmerkovskiy brushed aside the speculation when speaking with ET's Angelique Jackson after Monday's DWTS.

"You know, I post a lot of pictures with Laurie too and, for some reason, thankfully, there's no romance rumors there!" Chmerkovskiy said, referring to his 16-year-old DWTS partner, Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez.

While he didn't confirm or deny any potential romance, the pro dancer had nothing but praise for the model's performances on DWTS.

"I'm proud of Amber for coming in and embracing the process and doing her very best [while] looking great," Chmerkovskiy marveled. "Obviously, because she was my brother's partner especially, I was rooting for them."
