No! No no no. Maks is meant for Meryl, darn it. (I’m such a loser. I know, don’t have to remind me, but thanks.)
Remember the American Music Awards? Oh, you didn’t watch? You didn’t miss much, believe me. Anyway, J Lo performed and Maks was one of her dancers, and he had to lift her up and all that jazz. For some reason this has ignited rumors that they’re romantically involved. Especially considering her and Casper the friendly ghost have called it quits. And her pal Leah Remini is supposedly trying to play matchmaker.
“They are friends,” a source close to the 44-year-old tells Us. “He performed with her on the AMA’s. But [they’re] just friends.”
“She doesn’t have a second to date anyone right now and it is definitely not romantic with Maksim,” the source adds of the “First Love” singer who has been busy promoting her upcoming album A.K.A.
One person who definitely does want the friends to get together is Lopez’s BFF Remini. Another source tells Us, “Leah is trying to play matchmaker with Maks and Jennifer,” adding, “She’s really egging it on and encouraging it.”
I don’t know how this would work, it seems like in J Lo’s past relationships at least, she kind of is the more powerful one, if that makes any sense. I wouldn’t be sad if they got together though. They’re both gorgeous, and he doesn’t work for her so that’s already an improvement.
