Dancing with the Stars frontrunner Nyle DiMarco shut down his haters last week after getting the first perfect 10 score of this season. And RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the former AMTM winner's emotional Viennese Waltz on last week's episode caused the ongoing feud between him and his co-stars to explode into an all-out war!
On Monday night's episode, which took fans inside the rehearsals, a producer asked DiMarco on-camera who he thought his competition was.
"I think my competition right now is Val," DiMarco, 26, said on Monday night's episode, referring to 30-year-old veteran series regular, Chmerkovskiy. As a pro, partnered with Ginger Zee, he is technically not competing against DiMarco — and the comment rubbed some people the wrong way, with judge Len Goodman calling it "ridiculous."
The two tweeted an apparent truce after the show aired, but sources said it's more tense than ever behind the scenes.
The beef between the two hunks actually started several weeks ago when Val accused DiMarco of getting too close to dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd, 29, who is engaged to Val's 36-year-old brother Maksim!
"Nyle is absolutely OVER playing nice guy and he is not taking it anymore," a source close to DiMarco told Radar.
"He is tired of keeping his mouth shut and is going to start putting everyone on blast."
"Val has been extremely rude to him and Nyle is not having it any longer," added the insider. "He is in it to win it and is out for blood."
Do you think that Nyle DiMarco deserves to win this season of 'Dancing With the Stars?'
