Here we’ve been, spending weeks on end racking our brains trying to figure out what couple name best suits Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy — Jaksim? Chmerkez? MaksLo? — only to hear they’re actually not a couple. We mean, we know a J.Lo-Maksim union seemed like a stretch, but did you see those photos of them all cozy at the club?! That looked a shade more than "friendly" to us…
Cool your heels, though, says the Dancing With The Stars pro. He’s definitely not taking a walk around Jenny’s block. Maksim tells the NY Daily News’ Confidenti@l column that the only thing he’s gotten out of rumors he and Jennifer are dating is a big old headache.
“I now understand why Hollywood is such a difficult place to have a good relationship in: because there’s all these interferences,” he says. “Two people have to be so strong — and notice I didn’t say ‘in love.’ They have to be in love, but trust me, there’ve been situations when two people have been really in love, and all of this gets in the way and it completely ruins it.”
But don’t let that fool you into thinking Maksim and Jennifer are officially Hollywood’s hottest new couple. “With the Jennifer thing, look, we’re friends and … we’re friends. This is it. This is where it ends, pretty much.”
“Pretty much,” huh? We’re pretty much sure we should keep brainstorming couple names.
