Report: Jennifer Lopez doing more than dancing with Maks Chmerkovksiy


She sure likes her men in shape. Jennifer Lopez apparently has traded up. Just a week or so after we heard she was dunzo with sext-happy backup dancer Casper Smart, the actress/entertainer is now reportedly with Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovksiy. Perhaps the new couple will go on gym dates. A source tells RadarOnline that J.Lo is “obsessed” with fitness, and the topic can get a little dull.


The lady doth protest: No way she had an affair with Jay Z, says Casey Cohen, of Bravo’s Princesses: Long Island. In Touch Weekly reported that the rapper had been stepping out with the NYC hostess, whose lawyer has contacted the magazine’s publisher, Bauer Media, with a cease and desist letter and wants all posts regarding the alleged affair removed. Jay Z and Beyonce start their On the Run tour June 25 at Sun Life Stadium.


Casey Kasem’s daughter has the authority to withhold food and fluids from her ailing father, a judge has ruled. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy concluded that the radio host would endure more pain if kept alive. “It’s just flat out wrong,” said Steve Haney, an attorney for Kasem’s wife, Jean.


Bachelorette couple Trista and Ryan Sutter are in front of the cameras once again, struggling to save their 10-year union. In Friday night’s episode of ABC’s Marriage Boot Camp, firefighter Sutter confesses he hasn’t been the greatest husband. In a creepy bonding exercise, Trista lies in a fake morgue while Ryan cries over her “dead” body, telling her he should have told her he loved her more.


Brad Pitt has joined Angelina Jolie at a London summit on sexual violence. They hope representatives of the more than 100 countries there will back a new protocol on how sexual violence in conflict zones should be investigated. Also in attendance: Human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who is due to wed George Clooney in September in Venice.


An attorney for music producer Stevie J denies prosecutors’ allegations that his client owes $1 million in child support. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was arrested Monday in Georgia on the New York charges and has been ordered to appear in court in the Southern District of New York.


You can say one thing for Robin Thicke: He’s a persistent bugger. The singer hopes that he’ll impress his estranged wife, Paula Patton, by naming his upcoming album after her, Us Weekly reports.
