It’s no secret that Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a big fan of Jennifer Lopez, but that doesn’t mean he’s her first second third fourth new love.

Back in 2011, Entertainment Tonight Canada asked Maks this question: If you could just have one casual, non-televised dance with any woman, who would you pick? “I would dance with J.Lo,” Maks said. “I would like to dance with anybody who, you know, who actually puts in their resume 'can also dance' just to see what it's like. And she's single, so..." He raised an eyebrow to the camera.

Well, he got his dance wish last year — and it was televised — when he danced with J.Lo at the 2013 American Music Awards.

But did he get his single wish — since she is now done with Casper Smart and he seems to not be dating Meryl Davis, Kate Upton or anyone in particular?

MediaTakeOut recently said Maks and J.Lo are dating and plan to make an announcement about it soon. People picked up the idea, although they never confirmed any romance; they just said the two met through DWTS alum Leah Remini and kept in touch after dancing at the AMAs. J.Lo was also at Maks’s brother Val Chmerkovskiy’s birthday party in March.

However, a “source close to the situation” recently told Gossip Cop this of Maks and Jenny From the Block: “They are friends.” Just friends. They would be a good-looking couple — and they both like to hang out with other good-looking people — but for now, it looks like they are just hanging out.
