Wait, what? DWTS’ Alan Bersten hasn’t talked to ex Alexis Ren ‘in a while’

Alexis Ren may have subtweeted ex-boyfriend Alan Bersten recently, but he’s not in contact with the 22-year-old, he exclusively told Us Weekly at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 14.

“Oh, that’s a good question!” Bersten, 24, said when asked if he was in touch with the model, his partner on Dancing With the Stars’ 27th season. “I haven’t spoken to her in a while. I’m not gonna lie. I’m gonna be honest.”

The So You Think You Can Dance alum told Us he and his DWTS colleagues are “getting ready” for season 28, and though he thinks the ABC reality competition will stay on TV “for a while,” he’s not interested in exchanging anything other than dance moves with his future partners on the show.

“No more showmances for me,” he said. “I’m done!”

A month into season 27, Ren admitted she was “developing feelings” for Bersten, and though a source told Us she wanted to “keep it professional” during the filming, the couple kissed on the show the following week. “I do have feelings for you,” Bersten told the Santa Monica native at the time. “And I really feel like I am falling for you.”

Two days later, however, Ren tweeted that “good love hurts,” and Bersten told Us the following week that they were taking the romance “day by day.”

The couple ended up coming in fourth place in the season, and the dance pro called their time on the show “an incredible journey,” though he wished their onscreen romance was “a little more subtle.”

A couple weeks later, the Ren Active founder hinted on Instagram that she and Bersten had gone their separate ways. “Feelings aren’t black and white and neither is life,” she wrote at the time. “We’re focused on our careers and growing as individuals. He’s an amazing person and I’m grateful he came into my life. He’s on his own journey and I respect that.”

In December, Us Weeklyexclusively confirmed the couple’s split. “She’s in Japan working and he’s going on tour in a couple of weeks, but they are still talking and still consider each other friends,” a source told Us. “They aren’t in the same country for a while, which makes a relationship hard, but they are open to whatever the future might hold.”

In January, Ren posted a tweet many fans thought was directed toward Bersten. “If you’re reading this, I miss you,” she wrote. She later apologized to Twitter followers for being “so cryptic.”

Alexis Ren Sexiest Instagrams of 2019
come find me
I can’t wait to look back on these days in 15 years and joke about all the memories
how beautiful it is to realize that you are the girl you’ve always wanted to be
being homeschooled my entire life classrooms are really intimidating. Now that I’m taking acting classes it’s really taking me outside my comfort zone. what are you doing to challenge yourself lately?
If someone makes you happy, make them happier
It was 6 am and I couldn’t sleep
don’t commit to me, commit to evolving and I’ll meet you there
I basically have two moods, either let’s do something spontaneous and awesome...or let’s just lay in bed all day, talk about space, and forget the world exists.
bless the people who just want to be better, do better, feel better; who refuses to give up despite the shit life pulls. we all in this bitch together...go women. go men. go earth. go all of us.
Book recommendations please & thank you
It’s one of those five cups of coffee days

Happy girl cause I found a new skincare brand that I truly believe in & love. @sonyadakar is going to take me through a beauty boot camp which means I’ll be doing different treatments of hers for 6-8 weeks. I’ve never done something like this before, I can’t wait to share my experience 😊 (and no this isn’t an ad, I just really believe in her products and what she stands for)
Huge or tiny, what’s the most recent thing you’ve learned about yourself?
because in the end its all about you. you are the years, you are the moments, you are the smiles and tears. you are the words you said and the words you left in your head. you are everything, and once you understand that, you will realize your potential
night swims
A lil shout out to @sonyadakar x not only has she become someone I adore but she’s also blessed my skin. If you scroll you’ll find me ranting about my favorite moisturizer. Okay. Love you bye.
