Dancing With The Stars pro Mark Ballas and former American Idol contestant Pia Toscano began dating earlier this year, but already, their romance has ended.

Toscano's rep declined to comment on why the couple split. However, the following statement was released:

    "She's hard at work on her new album and can't wait for her fans to hear it. Pia is wrapping up her American Idol tour and her album is expected to be released soon."

Ballas, 25, and Toscano, 22, met while they were both working on their shows. DWTS and AI rehearse and shoot at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.

For DWTS Season 13, Ballas has been teamed up with Kristin Cavallari. Now that the Hills hottie is single, will these two strike up a showmance? It would certainly be great publcity for the show's premiere on September 19!
