Lopez gets close to dancer during rehearsals break

Jennifer Lopez has fuelled rumours she is romancing a toyboy dancer after she was snapped embracing the hunk during rehearsals for Sunday's (20Nov11) American Music Awards.

The Jenny from the Block superstar has been linked to 24 year old Casper Smart for several weeks, following her split from Marc Anthony in July (11).

Lopez has refused to confirm or deny reports she is dating her back-up dancer, but she was caught on camera hugging the hunk and staring into his eyes during a break from practising their performance for Sunday's show in Los Angeles.

Lopez and Anthony announced their separation after seven years of marriage.
