“J. Lo is ‘too over-the-top’ for Maksim Chmerkovskiy,” reads the headline of a new article from the New York Post, which is now shamelessly trying to backtrack from its dead wrong story linking the two.

MediaTakeOut started the rumor last week that Jennifer Lopez was dating the “Dancing with the Stars” pro.

Then a slew of lemming-like outlets like the New York Post spread the bogus story — until Gossip Cop was the first outlet to bust it.

Lopez herself even confirmed our report that she’s not dating anyone right now.

So, now the New York Post needs a way out of it phony story, and on Tuesday is claiming that Lopez and Chmerkovskiy are now “over” because he was “spooked by all the media attention the budding relationship received.”

The paper then quotes a seemingly made-up source saying, “It’s already gotten too over-the-top.”

No, what’s “over-the-top” is how one outlet makes up a rumor, and the rest of the media follows suit, often adding fabricated embellishments.

Unlike Chmerkovskiy, the New York Post can’t dance out of this one.
