Hough's longest relationship was the one he had with this Jane by Design actress.
But after eight years together he reportedly broke up with her to start dating his DWTS season six partner Shannon Elizabeth.
It's likely Elizabeth's fault that he would be linked with nearly every partner after her.
Once people knew he was capable of dating someone and lying about it, it was easy to assume he'd doing the same with all his dancing partners. He's still friends with Elizabeth and the pair caught up over dinner in 2012.
february 27, 2016, during the weinstein company's annual pre-oscar dinner at the montage in beverly hills, it was announced that hough would be the male lead for the upcoming singin' in the rain broadway production, which is scheduled to open in january 2017.
