The artists, who were seated close to each other at the Oscars on Sunday, may have dated following her divorce from Marc Anthony in 2011.
On top of TMZ reporting the two were on a date at Manhattan restaurant Per Se, and being spotted in a car together by UK’s The Mirror, they also both sat front row together at Tommy Hilfiger’s New York Fashion Week show prior to their outings in September of 2010.
Although People reported that the aforementioned dinner date was strictly business.
The singer, 49, and Anthony share two children together.
“I hung in there for seven years,” Lopez told W Magazine in 2016 of her marriage ending. “I knew very quickly that it wasn’t the right thing.”
The “Silver Linings Playbook” actor, 44, had recently broken up with actress Renee Zellweger at the time.
A prior fling may be the reason why Lopez was happy to give the “A Star is Born” director advice to calm his nerves at the awards show before he took the stage with Lady Gaga to sing their winning hit, “Shallow.”
“He seemed a little nervous,” Lopez revealed in an Instagram Live on Sunday night (via People). “I just whispered, ‘The song is so beautiful. When they hear the first few notes, they’re going to start applauding. So don’t worry. Just deliver the song.’ He was like, ‘I got it, I got it, okay.’”
And even though their performance was steamy enough to make a few viewers uncomfortable, Cooper is taken as he’s dating model Irina Shaik. They share a one-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine.
Lopez has been dating former Yankee Alex Rodriguez for two years.
Reps for both Lopez and Cooper didn’t return our requests for comment.
