Jennifer Lopez says she’s NOT dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

On Thursday, before she took the stage at the World Cup opening ceremony, the performer shot down the rumor on Twitter.

Asked by a follower whether she’s dating someone new in the wake of her split from Casper Smart, Lopez replied, “No I’m not. (dating anyone new already).”

Of course, Gossip Cop was the FIRST OUTLET to debunk the Chmerkovskiy rumor on Wednesday.

And we even sent out an alert to other media that the report was false.

Still, a bunch of other outlets — People, the New York Daily News, the New York Post, Glamour — followed the lead of a disreputable report from a webloid called MediaTakeOut, which spread the false rumor that Lopez and Chmerkovskiy were an item.

Now they’re all backtracking.

Gossip Cop was first, yet again, with the real story.
