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.
