If Wednesday’s reports out of the New York Daily News Confidenti@l are true, then Jennifer Lopez has made a “Smart turnaround” and moved on with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The celebrity dating rumor mill has had a field day with the latest headlines linking the “DWTS” team of Maks and Meryl Davis as well as assuming JLo broke off with Casper after sexting a transsexual.

But, gossip is just that and last week it was reported Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart split before the sexting scandal on the same day that Sofie Vissa, the transsexual in question, was offered an adult film from Vivid Entertainment. As Lopez and Smart were saying ciao, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis, “Dancing with the Stars” season 18 champs, were fending off rumors that their dancing chemistry meant they were dating. Davis and her ice dancing partner Charlie White (who recently announced his engagement to Tanith Belbin) discussed dating rumors on Huff Post Live where the ice dance pair both agreed there was a lot of acting on the ice and the “Dancing with the Stars” ballroom, with Davis embellishing that she and Chmerkovskiy “had an amazing time.”

Among all of this dizzying relationship talk comes the news that Maks, 34, and Lopez, 44, are an item, a scary thought considering they both are rumored to be incredible divas. Or maybe it’s a match made in heaven. A source close to the new celebrity pair told Confidenti@l that the Chmerkovskiy and Jennifer hookup is “really new.” According the Daily News Lopez fell for Maks at the AMAs where the “DWTS” pro lifted JLo, and all of her assets, during the Celia Cruz tribute, in what he tweeted was, “the most stressful four seconds of my life.”

Confidenti@l went on to state that there was immediate chemistry between Maks and Lopez back in November, however he was involved with supermodel Kate Upton at the time and JLo hadn’t split from the sexting Smart. Apparently the two reconnected in March and both got their flirt on as a “Life and Style spy” spotted Chmerkovskiy and Lopez at the Redbury Hotel in Los Angeles, after a birthday party for Maks’ brother Val.

For now Hollywood’s soon-to-be hottest couple are across the world from one another. Maksim Chmerkovskiy is in India to judge the country’s version of “Dancing with the Stars,” and Jennifer Lopez is in Brazil to perform the opening ceremonies for the World Cup. It’ll be interesting to watch what type of cutesy acronym will be formed to unite Maks and JLo.
