Before we dive in, let’s take a moment to murmur admiringly about how I correctly spelled “Chmerkovskiy” without looking it up.

Thanks for the murmurs. Moving on: Is “Dancing With the Stars” pro Maksim dating Jennifer Lopez? They say no, but I’m going to go ahead and doubt their word.

Lopez and Chmerkovskiy met last year while working on the American Music Awards together. At the time, Chmerkovskiy was dating model Kate Upton and Lopez was with former backup dancer Casper Smart, but they’re both single now and they’ve been frequently spotted in each other’s company.

Lopez has said that she and the dance pro are just friends, but they’ve been hanging out together and awful lot. Chmerkovskiy even followed J.Lo to Connecticut, and if that’s not love, I don’t know what is. He attended her show at that Foxwoods Casino, and they were later spotted dancing at the Shrine Nightclub. “They were close all night and appeared to be very flirtatious,” a witness told Page Six.

At the end of the night, however, they apparently hugged goodbye and left separately. So maybe Maksim was really only in it for the raging Connecticut nightclub scene after all.
