'Dancing with the Stars' Julianne Hough confirms Chuck Wicks split
By Christopher Rocchio, 11/13/2009
Julianne Hough has confirmed her romantic relationship with Chuck Wicks is over.
"It's a good thing for us right now," Hough toldUs Weekly on Thursday. "We are both extremely busy and working on our careers and really focused on that."
Earlier this week, it was reported that the two-time Dancing with the Stars professional champion and her country crooner boyfriend had split -- adding it was a "mutual" decision.
When Hough was asked by Us if there was any heartache, she replied, "Not at all."
Hough and Wicks began dating while both were participating in Brad Paisley's Summer 2008 tour.
She subsequently stated last November that she would not be back for Dancing with the Stars' Spring 2009 eighth season and reiterated the decision was "final" because she wanted to focus on her singing career and be "taken seriously" as a musician.
