"Extra" broke the news of dance champ Helio Castroneves' broken engagement when he told us, "It was already time to go, so you know what? It is what it is."
Now the word is it wasn't Helio who did the dumping.
Sources whisper it was his ex-fiancée Aliette who pirouetted out of his life. Plus, New York Daily News' Gatecrasher Ben Widdicombe says Helio's close relationship with partner Julianne Hough was a big part of the reason for the split.
