In response to a radio station Tweet that she was already dating someone new, J.Lo replied, "No I'm not. #rumors #nottrue" before playfully plugging her new album, A.K.A., out June 17.
When a fan asked if it's not true she is dating someone new or simply that she's single, Lopez clarified further.
"No I'm not. (dating anyone new already.)"
Still, a Lopez pal says the singer and the DWTS hunk might have a chance at taking their budding friendship to the next level. "I think they could [become a couple]," says the friend. "Who know what will happen?"
The singer, 44, has repeatedly said she is "one of those people who does not like to be alone," and those in her circle say she already has an idea of what she's looking for in a new man.
The mom of two is envisioning "a relationship with a guy who is older and has an established career," a source tells People in this week's issue.
But for now, the busy star is promoting her album and performing at the World Cup opening ceremonies today in Brazil. Where she did an amazing job and looked hotter than ever. She really brought down the house with her opening number.
We are sure when she is ready to date again there will be a long line of men waiting.
