Male model known as the 'Brad Pitt of Cuba' has denied having an affair with Jennifer Lopez.William Levy, 30, made a shirtless appearance in the pop star's new video I'm Into You, which was filmed in Mexico in April.
The American Idol judge, 41, was shown cosying up to him in sensual beach scenes filmed at Turtle Beach.
Levy separated frp, his wife of eight years, Elizabeth Gutierrez, a month after the shoot.
Today he dismissed reports he is dating the star, who announced her separation for Marc Anthony on Friday.
A spokesperson for Levy told TMZ: 'The only relationship there was or is, is a professional relationship. That’s all there’s ever been.'
Officially it’s still all systems go, but I hear Simon Cowell’s nemesis will have to rethink the format – and it’s JLO being tipped as most likely to pull out. I’m told: “Simon has been assured Marc and Jennifer are both professional enough to put on a good show regardless of any personal problems they may be having.
“But behind the scenes it’s a very different story. They are barely on speaking terms, and only converse to talk about their children.
“The split is far from amicable although they do hope to be friends in the future.
“The idea was for the couple, along with choreographer Jamie King, to tour 21 countries scouting for fresh Latino talent, but obviously, the last thing either of them feels like doing right now is touring together.
“Jennifer has been brilliant on Simon’s other pet project, American Idol, so the feeling is she will leave Marc to do Q’Viva!
“The only other option is that Marc and Jennifer still do it but travel separately, and have Jamie sit between them on the judging panel.
“Things could get very awkward.”
If Jennifer does quit the series – which is due to start filming in two months – Mariah Carey is being tipped to fill her shoes.
JLO and Marc, mum and dad of twins Max and Emme, would have toured the world looking for new singers, dancers and performers.
Speaking at the time of the show being announced, JLO, 41, said. “We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered.
“This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting.”
The On The Floor singer had stalled on a new deal to be a judge on Idol despite her success on the reality show.
