Rumours regarding Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the new Ukrain-imported judge on Jhalak 7, seeing pop sensation Jennifer Lopez are painting the town red. The handsome choreographer is said to be dating Jlo, just a week after she called it quits with her ex, dancer Casper Smart.
Jennifer met Jhalak 7 judge Maksim through a common friend who was part of Season 17 of Dancing With The Stars, Leah Remini. "Leah and Jennifer are best friends. So as a group, they're all very friendly. Maksim is in India and Jennifer is at the FIFA World Cup right now. Who knows what could happen down the road?," a source said.
Maksim and Lopez also shared the stage last November at the American Music Awards for her tribute to Celia Cruz, and the couple have reportedly hit it off ever since. The rumours began following the scorching chemistry between them during the performance, and have now snowballed and are making headlines.

These rumours are actually, not hard to believe, for, who would not get blown away with Maksim's charming and suave looks? One look at Madhuri Dixit and Mouni Roy during the Jhalak 7 promos as they are dancing with the man, are enough to guess that Maksim can cast his spell on any woman.
Jennifer has rubbished the rumours, tweeting "No I'm not. #rumors #nottrue #AKAinstoresJune17 :)" adding in a plug for her new album at the same time. Maksim was also recently being linked with model-turned-actress Kate Upton, who is half Jennifer's age.
Now that Maksim Chmerkovskiy is in India to judge Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7, the desi version of Dancing with the Stars, and will not be travelling to the US for sometime, these rumours may be laid to rest.
