REPORTS: Bindi Irwin dating DWTS partner Derek Hough

By Marni Dixit December 14, 2015

New Idea is reporting that Bindi Irwin has ended things with 19-year-old Chandler Powell for her dancing partner Derek Hough.

A source told the magazine that Bindi and Derek became very close over the time they were dancing together: "It’s very sweet to see the bond that’s developed between these two, and the fact he’s gone all the way Down Under to hang out with her shows just how close they are."

Bindi is yet to comment on whether it is true or not, and while it's clear she is very fond of Derek, we don't really believe she has left Chandler for her dancing partner, especially considering the lack of evidence provided.

Bindi regularly takes to Instagram to share sweet photos of herself and Chandler like this one from two weeks ago:
