Jennifer Lopez breaks her silence on relationship with Drake at the 2017 GRAMMYs

Jennifer Lopez was caught in an awkward moment on the red carpet before Sunday night's 2017 Grammy Awards.

The "Dance Again" singer was talking to Ryan Seacrest on the E! Red Carpet before music's biggest night, when the former "American Idol" host asked her about her relationship with rapper Drake.

"I love Drake," Lopez said with an uncomfortable smile. "He's so brilliant and talented."

The moment came just a few days after news broke that the couple has reportedly broken up after two months of dating because of their conflicting busy schedules. Drake, who's currently on tour in Europe, wasn't at Sunday night's award show, so he didn't have to answer any questions about J.Lo.

When Seacrest asked whether the pair has "creative sparks" together while working on the song they recently made together, Lopez responded emphatically: "Yes, absolutely!"

"We had a great time," she continued. "I have so much love for that boy."

It was clear that Lopez has great admiration -- both personal and professional -- for the "Hotline Bling" hitmaker, and it didn't appear as though she had any bad blood towards him, despite their alleged breakup.
