Britney Spears is hooking up with J. Lo’s ex and she wants you to watch.

It’s not as salacious as it sounds, but as the singer gets closer to finishing up her fourth album, she’s also keeping an eye on how she’s going to promote it. With a fall tour in mind, Spears is lining up her crew, dancers and, of course, that ever-essential choreographer.

But after years of working with wunderkind Wade Robson, Spears is trading him in for the fancy footwork of Cris Judd, a source close to the singer told MTV News. Judd may be best known for his nine-month marriage to Jennifer Lopez, but he’s got an impressive and lengthy dance résumé to boot, having worked with Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Usher and Brian Setzer.

Spears’ spokesperson would only say that they’re “in talks” with Judd “about a variety of projects” and emphasized that nothing is confirmed.

Rehearsals, our source said, start in June.
