What a bummer! On last night’s new Dancing With the Stars episode, celeb contestant Lindsey Stirling sadly revealed she and her boyfriend, Ryan Weed, recently split after nearly two years of dating. “It’s been a rough couple weeks. My relationship of a year and a half came to an end a week ago,” the 31-year-old violinist told her pro partner Mark Ballas in their rehearsal footage. “Breakups are horrible, I get it,” Mark sweetly replied to which Lindsey added, “The worst.”
“I know your heart probably really hurts right now but you would never know it,” Mark, also 31, told Lindsey. “I want to have a family and I thought I was almost ready to go to that next phase,” she said of the split.
