Jennifer Lopez Reportedly Dating 'DWTS' Professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy After Split From Casper Smart

Jennifer Lopez doesn't seem to want to waste any time being single. Only several days ago, news surfaced that the 44 year-old songstress had split from her boyfriend of two and a half years, Casper Smart, but it looks like she has already grown close to another dancer.

Lopez is reportedly dating again

Lopez is reportedly back on the dating scene with 'Dancing With The Stars' professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy, according to New York Daily News, who claim a source revealed, "It's really new."

Lopez and Chmerkovskiy have already proven that they have chemistry after performing together to pay tribute to salsa dancer Celia Cruz at the American Music Awards in November (2013). Most likely nothing happened between the pair at the time as Lopez was still dating Smart, and Chmerkovskiy was also in a relationship with Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton.

But as the performers are both currently single, maybe they decided to pick up where they left off. The duo were spotted at Los Angeles' Redbury Hotel in March.

This new dating news comes less than a week after it was confirmed Smart and Lopez ended their well-publicized romance. Their split was amicable, but they decided to call it quits, almost two months ago, after simply growing apart.

Chmerkovskiy is apparently Lopez's new man

"It wasn't an easy decision, but they decided to stay friends," another source told Us Weekly. "Their relationship couldn't work with the distance. He started trying to establish his own life and career, and she is so focused on hers, and they just couldn't be all about each other anymore."

"She will definitely still keep things civil and actually still loves him. The hard part is the kids love him too. He has become a part of her family," another insider told E!News. "It's not going to be one of those breakups where you never see them together again."

Neither Lopez nor Chmerkovskiy have commented on the dating speculation.

News of Lopez & Smart's split only surfaced last week
