You would think this is the Royal Wedding, the way people are carrying on about this divorce…
Days after Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced their split, William Levy–the male model and telenovela star eleven years Lopez’s junior who played the singer’s love interest in the music video for her new single “I’m Into You”–is denying allegations that he had an affair with the pop star.
Though Levy separated from his wife of eight years, Elizabeth Gutierrez, just a month after the sexy shoot–which featured JLo and Levy cavorting, “From Here To Eternity”-style, on beautiful Mexican beaches–his rep told TMZ Monday that Levy’s relationship with the singer was and is purely professional: “That’s all there’s ever been.”
These allegations come on the heels of other trouble for the Cuban actor/model–according to RadarOnline.com, he is currently fighting a lawsuit that accuses him of sexual battery of a minor. The suit, which surrounds an incident that took place in Glendale, California last year, alleges that Levy also gave the minor a sexually transmitted disease during the episode.
Levy acknowledges that the encounter occurred, but insists it was consensual, and has counter-sued for defamation and extortion, and asked that his case be be tried in court by a jury.
Lopez has yet to comment on her relationship with her video co-star.
