Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: A Match Made in Dancers’ Heaven?

Think it’s safe to assume Jennifer Lopez has a type?

It’s only been, oh — a nanosecond, since Jen gave backup dancer Casper Smart the heave ho (and the newfound freedom to proposition transsexuals on Instagram), but Jenny From Block is nothing if not resilient. The three-time divorcee is reportedly in the throes of a budding romance with Kate Upton’s ex. A hot-tempered, light-footed reality star Dancing with the Stars aficionados know best as Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The New York Daily News and Life and Style magazine are among the glossies dishing the deets on the red-hot relationship. While Daily News snoops describe Jennifer and Maksim as a new item, Life and Style claims the 44-year-old diva and the Ukrainian ballroom ace, 34, were spied canoodling at a Los Angeles hotel as far back as March.

“At one point, he put his arm around her waist and they seemed to be locked in a very passionate conversation.”

We suppose the rumored hookup shouldn’t come as a total surprise. After all, Maks did once describe Jennifer as his dream Dancing with the Stars partner.
