Rumors are abounding that Jennifer Lopez is nursing her breakup with former boyfriend Casper Smart with a brand new love. Word has it that Lopez is now dating Dancing With Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. A source told People magazine, “They are friends and have been talking. I think they could become a couple. Who knows what will happen?”
There are past connections between the two stars. Lopez is best friends with Leah Remini, who appeared on Season 17 of DWTS. Remini reportedly introduced Lopez to Chmerkovskiy. Then the J.Lo and Maks (as he’s affectionately been dubbed by the press) danced together at the 2013 American Music Awards, where Lopez performed a tribute to Celia Cruz. The duo has allegedly remained in close contact since then.
Another source speculated that Lopez and Chmerkovskiy could be currently staging an international love hookup. “Maks is in India and J. Lo is at the World Cup right now,” the source told E! News. “Who knows what could happen down the road?’
But when asked directly if she’s dating anyone new while promoting her new album A.K.A. Lopez tweeted, “No, I’m not. #rumors #not true.”
Who knows what’s really true or not. Only J.Lo does for sure.
