Is Jennifer Lopez causing Maksim Chmerkovskiy to lose friends? We can’t say for sure, but People reports that the former “Dancing with the Stars” pro is no longer cool with his celebrity dance partner, Kirstie Alley.

Alley is a well-known Scientologist. J-Lo is BFFs with Leah Remini, the ex-Scientologist whom Alley can’t stand. She recently referred to the “King of Queens” star as a bigot for remarks she made after leaving the controversial church. Now the former “Cheers” star feels like Maks is running in a bad circle of friends.

On Tuesday, Maks told Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” that Kirstie “stopped getting along with [him].” He went on to say, “We had a great relationship…But I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can’t be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with.” For the most part, he’s baffled about the situation, but wishes Kirstie well.
