The pair started dating less than a year ago and are said to have split earlier this month.
Despite the 18-year-old YouTube personality going through a "rough time", JoJo has been "handling" the show "very professionally" and is focusing all of her energy on the competition at hand.
The source added: “Kylie stopped attending the show so she hasn’t been seen in the audience since they split.
“JoJo is focusing on the competition and giving her all.
“While it’s a rough time for her, she’s handling ‘DWTS’ very professionally and still putting on a smile and giving 100 per cent. She doesn’t want to let down her fans.”
What's more, her dance partner Jenna Johnson, 27, has been "like a big sister to [JoJo]" amid the breakup.
Marking their one-month anniversary in February, JoJo gushed at the
time: "After being my best friend for over a year, January 8th 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my Girlfriend ...
"And Since then I’ve been the happiest I have ever been! She seriously is the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world. And I get to call her mine! Happy one month to my girl! I love you more and more everyday! (sic)"
Meanwhile, JoJo previously admitted she is "proud" to be part of 'Dancing With the Stars' first same-sex couple.
The teenage entertainer - who came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community earlier this year - is excited to be breaking barriers and "changing the future" by dancing on the celebrity dance contest with a female professional partner.
She said: "When I read the email it was like, 'Would JoJo prefer to dance with a girl or with a boy?' And I was like, 'Wait, that's an option? Let's absolutely do it!'
"It was a like, 'Whoa, I'm changing the future' [moment], because I have such a kid demographic. It's making it acceptable, and I love that and I'm so proud of that."
