Just days after it was announced that Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart were no longer dating, PEOPLE reports that Lopez may have a new man already, and that man is ‘Dancing With the Stars’ pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Sources to the magazine say that Lopez, 44, met Chmerkovskiy, 34, through Leah Remini and her ‘DWTS’ partner Tony Dovolani, but the two have been “taking it slow due to work commitments.”

“He danced with her at the [American Music Awards last November] and they kept in touch,” a friend told PEOPLE.

Reps for Lopez and Chmerkovskiy did not comment on the story for PEOPLE.

Last Friday, it was reported that Lopez and Smart had separated partly due to work commitments, so it would make sense that Lopez would want to take it slowly during a busy time in her life. Lopez has been working on the last season of ‘American Idol’ as well as prepping for her next album, ‘A.K.A.’
