Surprise! It’s another back up dancer. Oh, JLo. After her breakup with Casper hit news waves recently, rumors are already spinning that she has replaced the young boy-toy with yet another back up dancer.
According to NY Daily News:
Not even a week after announcing her split from boy toy Casper Smart, J.Lo has found comfort in the arms of another dancer. Confidenti@l sources confirm that Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are an item.
“It’s really new,” a source close to the pair tell us.
J.Lo was literally head over heels for the “Dancing With the Stars” standout when he lifted her as high as he could, and spun her in circles during a performance honoring Cuban salsa artist Celia Cruz at the American Music Awards in November. Chmerkovskiy tweeted at the time that was “the most stressful four seconds of my life.”
While we’re told there might have been sparks between the pair then, nothing happened because J.Lo was in a relationship with Smart at the time and Chmerkovskiy was still dating Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton, whom he split with three weeks later.
“You saw (their chemistry) at the AMA’s?” winked an insider familar with the relationship. Things then heated up this spring. we’re told.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently won the Mirror Ball trophy with partner Meryl Davis on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ In late March, Lopez, 44, and Chmerkovskiy, 34, were “inseparable” according to a Life & Style spy who reportedly saw them getting cozy at the Redbury Hotel in L.A. “At one point, he put his arm around her waist and they seemed to be locked in a very passionate conversation,” the mag reported. That followed a birthday party for Maks’ brother Val.
We’re told J.Lo and Maks will be seen together more often now that Lopez is officially single.
