Mauricio Umansky and Emma Slater might just be the latest Dancing With the Stars showmance!
The DWTS partners were spotted holding hands after a flirty dinner at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills on Sunday, according to photos obtained by Page Six.
Umansky, 53, and Slater, 34, were also reportedly spotted inside the restaurant by a witness who said that they shared kisses while seated at the bar on their dinner date.
After plenty of speculation on the status of his marriage to wife Kyle Richards, Umansky shared an update with ET following DWTS‘ Latin Night earlier this month.
“The reality is… we are officially separated, but we’re not throwing in the towel,” he explained. “We’re fighting for this. We’ve been married for 27 years, 26 amazing years. Kyle is my best friend, she’s an amazing human, I love her… And marriages go through difficult times, sometimes, and that’s what we’re dealing with right now.”
Umansky and Richards are parents to daughters Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15, as well as Richards’ 34-year-old daughter, Farrah Brittany, whom she shares with her first husband, Guraish Aldjufrie.
According to Umansky, while the split has been challenging, “There’s a lot of pieces of this thing that have actually made the family a little closer… There is a silver lining.”
“My daughters are actually very pleased that we’re having a lot more real, open conversations with the family,” Umansky said. “They are appreciative of that.”
As for Slater, the DWTS pro filed for divorce from fellow dancer Sasha Farber in February.
In the Los Angeles filing, Slater cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, and requested that neither she nor Farber receive financial support after their divorce.
Slater additionally said that she and Farber are having an “uncontested divorce” and “intend on amicably resolving all property issues in a subsequent Stipulated Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage.”
Farber took to Instagram at the time to share a statement on the separation. “Things in life don’t always work out,” he wrote, “but it’s important to be thankful for the good times and great memories, be strong and keep moving.”
