Jennifer Lopez is said to have found herself a new lover less than a week after her split from former boyfriend and dancer Casper Smart. Well, J.Lo's new man is apparently a dancer too - in fact, you might know him. Maksim Chmerkovskiy ring a bell? The pop singer and the Dancing With The Stars choreographer and instructor have reportedly been getting rather friendly recently.
The 44 year-old 'Jenny From The Block' singer recently split from her 27 year-old lover amidst reports that Smart had been sexually involved with two transgender women. Luckily, Chmerkovskiy has been on hand for to comfort Jennifer in a friendship that could have blossomed into more.
"It's really new," an insider said of the pair's relationship to the NY Daily News. Apparently, things began to sizzle between J.Lo and Maksim at last November's American Music Awards where the DWTS standout performed as a backing dancer and even twirled the singer above his head at one point in a nerve-wracking dance stunt.

"He danced with her at the [American Music Awards last November] and they kept in touch," a friend of the singer's told People. However, J.Lo probably dismissed any attraction towards Maksim at the time because she was dating Casper. That didn't stop things from getting heated this Spring when Lopez and Chmerkovskiy began spending a lot more time with each other.
Life & Style magazine spotted the pair getting cosy at LA's Redbury Hotel and reported: "At one point, he put his arm around her waist and they seemed to be locked in a very passionate conversation."

But surely their joint love for dancing won't keep them apart for long!
