Jennifer Lopez

It sounds like Jennifer Lopez isn't letting her recent break-up with Casper Smart sour her taste for dancers. Several sources claim Lopez, who is now in Brazil for the World Cup opening ceremony, could be moving on and dating Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The two shook their stuff on stage during the American Music Awards and PageSix claims the two had a mutual attraction, but they were both already spoken for: Lopez was still with Smart and Maksim was apparently with Kate Upton

While the two kept in touch after performing, it sounds like DWTS contestant Leah Remini might have played matchmaker for the two after they both became single. While Us Magazine reports via a source, "[Lopez] doesn't have a second to date anyone right now and it is definitely not romantic with Maksim," another source contends, "Leah is trying to play matchmaker with Maks and Jennifer. She's really egging it on and encouraging it."

With Lopez working the World Cup Opening Ceremony and then promoting her new album A.K.A., we think a new romance is probably out of the cards until she settles down again. We assume she'll follow up her album with a world tour and Maksim will be busy with DWTS, so we'll re-visit this when it seems more timely - and likely.
