As Radar previously reported, Chmerkovskiy, 37, skipped the show last night after clashing with his partner Lachey, 36, and a source even said he might never return to work.

Another insider told Radar before the season began that Lachey was acting like a “big diva,” and making enemies with her partner and the crew.
