It’s been a rough week for “Dancing With the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. In addition to getting sent home in Season 24, Week 6 on the ABC show, the home he shares with fiancée Peta Murgatroyd was nearly broken into.

Maks broke his silence during an interview with E!’s Maria Menounos on her SiriusXM radio show Conversations with Maria Menounos.” He revealed that the break in was a strange incident with “some rock singer” who used to live in the house. The former owner was drunk, according to Maks, showing old deeds to the property to the police.

“So ‘GMA’ [‘Good Morning America’] was kind enough to let us not have to fly but we do the satellite interview at like 4 in the morning or whatever. So at like 2:20 I wake up, this loud knocking I come down there’s cops. They say there’s a dude outside claiming this is his house. Wait what?! So yeah it was pretty wild,” Maks explained.

The eliminated “DWTS” pro explained that while the incident didn’t escalate to a dangerous level, he didn’t feel comfortable leaving Peta, baby Shai, his mother and their nurse home without him. After hopping in the car he decided to call Heather and let her know he wouldn’t be able to make “GMA.” Maks was apologetic about the situation, but family — and their safety — comes first for him.

“This guy had a friend who was even more belligerent drunk than he. He was trying to setup like poses...he was like 5’6 maybe...It was just funny to me the whole thing,” Maks told Menounos. “It was 2:30 in the morning I couldn’t understand what’s happening and then I had to get into the car to do the satellite and I called Heather I was like, ‘Babe, I’m sorry I just can’t, I don’t know how to leave the house.’”

While he wasn’t able to discuss his feelings on being eliminated from “DWTS” during “GMA,” he vented his frustrations during his interview with Menounos. Maks said, “there’s just been so much stuff that’s never happened to me before” in the last few months. While he knows the drill with “DWTS” and how unpredictable it can be, he said Heather was completely blindsided.

“It’s like a pile of stuff. Yesterday, you know how it is, you get eliminated you have to fly to ‘GMA.’ This was so shocking to Heather and I that ya know she wasn’t ready, I was, I would’ve done whatever I needed to do but because we both have kids now, and it’s kind of like OK, hold on a second let’s figure this out,” he said.

Heather was understanding of Maks’ stance after what happened at his home. She appeared on “GMA” alone, assuring “DWTS” fans that Maks, Peta and 3-month-old Shai were “OK.” Heather had very few details about what happened, only revealing that a strange man was found outside the home trying to get in.

“They had some sort of run in with some man near their house trying to break in, but the police were there,” the former “Glee” star said. “They took care of it. So they’re safe and Peta’s OK. That’s the most important thing.”

The Los Angeles Police Department later confirmed the break in to E! Online. According to a report, they received a call about an attempted break in at the “DWTS” pros’ home. No arrests were made.
