PEOPLE confirmed in January that Nikki Bella and her former Dancing with the Stars partner were casually dating
After grabbing lunch at Joan’s on Third, they strolled off hand-in-hand.
“They’ve been spending time together for a long time, but it’s nothing serious right now,” said a source of the couple, who danced together on season 25 of DWTS in 2017. “They have a strong attraction to each other, but they’re just having fun. They’re both extremely busy with their own careers, so they spend time together when they can.”
Speaking to Access Live a few weeks later, Bella said that while she and Chigvintsev, 36, were having fun, she wasn’t looking to settle down just yet.
“I’m having a lot of fun in my dating life,” she said. “Not just Artem [Chigvintsev] — I mean, we had amazing chemistry. I’m just kind of having fun. I don’t want to say playing the field, but just kind of having different experiences.”
“I’m not looking to be serious with anyone right now,” she added. “I’m just looking to have fun. I’m just in this position that I get to like go on these dates with a lot of amazing guys. I mean, not a lot, it’s only been a few.”
