OMG. So many of us are desperately clinging to the hope that he and Meryl Davis are in love and will live happily ever after, which is why the new rumor saying Maksim Chmerkovskiy is dating Jennifer Lopez is a major buzz kill.
Yes ... I said Maks and J. Lo are maybe/possibly an item. It isn't all that unfathomable, considering she recently kicked Casper Smart to the curb.
According to the New York Daily News, "it's really new," but apparently there have been sparks between Jen and Maks since they performed together at the American Music Awards back in November.
Nothing happened between them at that point, of course, since she was dating Casper and he was seeing Kate Upton.
But then supposedly the two of them were spotted getting cozy at a hotel in L.A. this spring. Now that J. Lo is officially a single woman again, we probably shouldn't be surprised if they start turning up in each other's company more often.
And I mean absolutely no offense to Jennifer when I say this, because I lurrvvvve her -- but she and Maks are all sorts of wrong for each other! Sure, they're both hot as hell and I'm sure their sexual chemistry is off the charts. But after seeing the deep, once in a lifetime connection Maks had with Meryl on season 18 of Dancing With the Stars, the thought of him embarking on a romance with Jen is pretty difficult to accept.
It's not like there's a real chance of them having a lasting relationship given how crazy their schedules are. What's the point of even trying to date -- unless they're simply planning on being hookup buddies or whatever.
Ugh. I know I'm not the only one who will be seriously disappointed if Maks doesn't fully explore whatever he has going on with Meryl before becoming J. Lo's latest boy toy. If he gives into temptation, he just might miss out on settling down with the love of his life.
Do you think Maks and Jennifer are a good fit?
