Jennifer Lopez 'very flirty' with Maksim Chmerkovskiy

2014-06-23 18:30

Los Angeles - Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy enjoyed a "very flirty" night out this past Saturday.

The Dancing With the Stars performer was spotted celebrating with the Booty hitmaker - who recently ended her relationship with 27-year-old dancer Casper Smart after two-and-a-half-years of dating - at Shrine nightclub in Ledyard, Connecticut after her concert at the Foxwoods Resort Casino.

An eyewitness told "Chmerkovskiy was whispering into her ear and hugging her. They looked very flirty with each other...She had a huge smile on her face and looked like she was having a great time."

The duo recently denied they're dating, but the 34-year-old dancer remained by the 44-year-old beauty's side for most of the night.

The source said they held hands, talked and shared a long hug at the end of the night and before they left separately with different friends.

The First Love singer danced with Chmerkovskiy - who previously dated Kate Upton - at the American Music Awards last November and they were "inseparable" at his brother Val's birthday party in Los Angeles in March.

But a source close to Jennifer - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony - insisted she and Chmerkovskiy are still just friends for the moment.

The insider said: "They are friends. She doesn't have a second to date anyone right now, and it is definitely not romantic with Chmerkovskiy."
