Not forgotten Maksim took full responsibility for his absence via Twitter and apologized to his partner on Twitter

This season on the show Chmerkovskiy is paired with Vanessa Lachey, while her husband Nick Lachey is paired with Chmerkovskiy's wife Peta Murgatroyd. "This song got us through some really tough times and helped us bond even closer as a family".

Two days later on Wednesday, the 37-year-old took full responsibility for his absence via Twitter, and apologized to his celebrity partner. According to multiple reports, their strong personalities clashed during rehearsals.

Maksim tweeted an apology to Lachey for missing last week's episode and doubled down on the show's official reason that he was a no-show. Fellow pro dancer Lindsay Arnold spotted him at the studio last week and told People, "Maks is back". "Vanessa isn't afraid to stand up to him". The fan-favorite couple earned a score of 23 out of 30 points for the jazz set, making them the third duo to be eliminated from the competition.

Season 25 contestant Sasha Pieterse also weighed in on the controversy involving the partners and said, "Honestly, they're awesome". The 98 Degrees singer and Murgatroyd performed a contemporary dance number that celebrated the year he tied the knot with his wife.

Do you think that Vanessa and Maks have put their dancing drama behind them? They're such a fun partnership.

A DWTS spokesperson confirmed Maks and Vanessa will dance together on Monday's show.

Each couple will dance to a song of the celebrity's choosing that encompasses a memorable time or truly incredible experience in their life, with the performances coming straight from the heart and showcasing some of the most emotional routines of the season. She then transitioned into talking about Chmerkovskiy and Lachey's issues that made headlines last week.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays on ABC. Pictured: Murgatroyd, Chmerkovskiy attend the VALENTINNICOLE fashion show at Lovage on February 9, 2017 in New York City.
