Jennifer Lopez used to Twitter to deny reports that she is dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

On Thursday, she answered a couple of Tweets shooting down the rumors that she is dating the “Dancing with the Stars” pro.

“No I’m not. #rumors #nottrue,” she wrote in response to a Tweet, posted by a radio station that said she is “already dating someone new,” following her split with Beau Casper Smart.

Jennifer also replied to a fan’s question about whether she was dating someone new, by Tweeting, “No I’m not. (dating anyone new already.)”

Neither Tweet mentioned Maks.

On Wednesday, the NY Daily News’ Confidential column reported that Maks and J.Lo “are an item.”

People.com also reported on the romance rumors on Wednesday, noting sources told the site that Jennifer has made time for Maks, but the two were “taking it slow due to work commitments.”

Back in November 2013, Maks performed alongside Jennifer at the American Music Awards. Their performance created headlines when Maks lifted J.Lo up and over his head during a tribute to Celia Cruz.

J.Lo’s split with Casper was revealed last week. The pair split about two months ago, a source told Access, noting that they remain “friendly.”
