Despite the incessant rumors surrounding her dating life, Jennifer Lopez insists she's a single lady.

The Internet has been buzzing with reports that the 44-year-old beauty is dating Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy following her recent split with beau Casper Smart

And while E! News already reported that there's currently no truth to the romance rumors, the "I Luv Ya, Papi" singer decided to set the record straight herself during a Twitter Q&A on Thursday.

After the radio station Q92.9FM Pittsburgh speculated that J.Lo "broke up with Casper Smart on FRIDAY and is already dating someone new!," the hitmaker replied, "No I'm not. #rumors #nottrue #AKAinstoresJune17 :)"

As a follow-up question, one fan asked Lopez to clarify whether this means "you didn't break up or you're not dating someone new."

Her response? "No I'm not. (dating anyone new already.)"

As for how the rumors began?

J.Lo met Maks last November when they shared the stage at the 2013 American Music Awards during her tribute to Celia Cruz and have kept in touch, a source told E! News. "They're friends," the insider added.

Moreover, Maks is close with fellow DWTS pro Tony Dovolani, who has "remained on great terms with Leah Remini," one of Lopez's best friends, since being partnered with her on season 17.

"Leah and Jennifer are best friends," the source explained. "So as a group, they're all very friendly. [Maks is] in India and [J.Lo's] at the World Cup right now. Who knows what could happen down the road?"

A second source adds that Maks "is a sweet guy and she is just enjoying being single. They are friends..for now." So perhaps these two will link up when J.Lo gets back in the dating game?

Of course, the busy mother of two barely has time for romance at the moment, considering she's preparing for the release of her upcoming album and she performed at the opening ceremony for the 2014 World Cup on Thursday.

The "On the Floor" singer took to Instagram prior to her performance and asked fans which costume she should wear on stage, while also giving her followers a sneak peek of herself rehearsing.

"#whatshouldjlowear4theworldcup #jlovers I'm trying to decide what to wear today for the World Cup? ##jlogreenwc #jlosilverwc or #jlocatsuitwc ??? Let me know!!! Hope u watch! #worldcup2014," she captioned the video clip.
