After her split with ex Casper Smart, Jennifer Lopez is said to have a new boyfriend.
A source told People that Lopez is taking her time to get to know “Dancing With The Stars” mainstay, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. It seems like Lopez has the hots for dancers these days.
Casper used to be J-Lo’s backup dancer, while Maksim danced onstage with Lopez at her performance at the American Music Awards.
According to the source, the “I Luh Yah Papi” singer met the 34-year-old hunk through mutual friend Leah Remini but the two are taking their time getting to know each other, as they are both busy with their careers.
‘He danced with her at the [American Music Awards last November] and they kept in touch,’ the source said.
However, Jennifer Lopez just recently denied having a new boyfriend. On Twitter, she denied rumors of her dating the “Dancing With The Stars” stud.
The singer replied to a radio station tweet which suggested she is “already dating someone new (And he’s GOOD LOOKING! FINALLY!)” with a link to a report linking her to the heart-throb dancer.
She responded: “No I’m not. #rumors #nottrue #AKAinstoresJune17 :)” adding in a plug for her new album at the same time.
Maksim was previously linked to Kate Upton, who at 22 is exactly half the age of J-Lo.
Meanwhile, appearing to confirm the rumours, Jennifer and Leah attended Maksim’s brother Val’s birthday party in Los Angeles in March.
And the insider believes they may become an official couple, saying: “I think they could. Who knows what will happen?”
But multiple sources with Us Weekly deny the romance, saying that the two are “just friends.”
People contacted reps for both stars, and they declined to comment.
