Casper Smart went looking for a Jennifer Lopez replacement in a target rich spot -- the Maxim Hot 100 party -- but the choreographer had trouble attracting babes with his moves on the dance floor.
Sources inside the party Tuesday night tell TMZ ... Smart was there with his boys, including Wilmer Valderrama.
We're told things got weird when Smart -- who remember is a dancer by trade -- hit the floor by himself, and busted out some crazy moves?
Some people felt he was trying to steal the spotlight by dancing solo near a giant video screen that was flashing photos of the hot 100 babes.
But the best moment was when #36 ... J.Lo popped up on screen. We're told Casper kept his head down the whole time to avoid seeing her pic.

Melanie Griffith is still carrying Antonio Banderas in the form of a tattoo on her right arm ... and she flat out showed it off yesterday in Santa Monica.
As TMZ first reported, the "Working Girl" filed for divorce from Antonio after 18 years of marriage. Griffith wants custody of their daughter and spousal support.
A referral to a good tattoo removal doc wouldn't hurt either.
However the divorce plays out, it's clearly going to take some time for Melanie to entirely erase Antonio from her life.

Casper Smart is keeping some fabulous parting gifts in the wake of his breakup with Jennifer Lopez ... but he's not getting any cash ... he's now strictly on his own.
Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... Casper gets to keep 2 motorcycles, a jeep and a Dodge Ram truck.
Pretty sweet so far, but that's where it ends. Casper's days tooling around L.A. in that white Bentley are over. Ditto flying private jets, the fancy Hamptons mansion and the Hidden Hills estate.
The toughest change for Casper -- he won't be sitting front row during Paris Fashion Week with Kanye.
And there's this. Our sources say Jennifer won't be doling out any money for Casper to land on his feet, but we're told that's the way he wants it. As it was put to us, "He's too much of a man" and hasn't asked for anything.
Well, Melanie Griffith is gonna be single soon ...

Take our word for it, you did not have as eventful of a week as Jeremy London.
London's wild seven-day stretch began a week ago Friday, when he finalized his divorce from wife Melissa Cunningham.
London was arrested in 2012 for alleged domestic violence ... he agreed to take anger management classes and in return the charges were dismissed.
Fast forward to Tuesday, when London married his girlfriend, Juliet Reeves. That would have been the highlight of his week ... if she didn't give birth to their son Wyatt just two days later.

Justin Bieber is at the center of the break-up of deejay Calvin Harris and Rita Ora ... and let's just say it wasn't because Justin was into Calvin.
Our sources say ... word got back to Calvin, Justin and Rita got "touchy feely" with each other while they were in the recording studio together over the last few months. Calivn heard they were very affectionate -- she would sit on his lap, he would rub her back, etc.
Justin was down in Mexico for the last few days ... and not coincidentally RIta was there as well.
For Calvin's' part ... he was out in Hollywood earlier this week with a slew of women ... and when we asked him about Rita hanging out with Bieber, he gave a very telling response.
Sources close to Harris and Rita tell TMZ ... he's already had her things removed from his L.A. house. We're also told he produced a few songs for her, but now he won't allow their release.
It's all about the release.

Casper Smart lost his job as Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend/dancer/babysitter -- but now he's getting a shot to make hundreds of thousands of bucks by starring in porn.
Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch sent a letter to Casper ... asking him to play the lead love interest in an XXX film featuring the transsexual with whom he was rumored to have an online fling.
Hirsch says Sofie Vissa is locked and loaded for a film called, "Sofie on the DownLo" ... and Hirsch wants Casper to get it on with Vissa in the company's first-ever transsexual sex tape.
We're told Casper is being offered around $200,000 -- with big back end potential and the possibility of a sequel, "Casper, the Friendly Host."
Casper has not acknowledged any sort of relationship with Sofie.
But It has Nothing to Do with Transsexual Texts
6/6/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have called it quits after nearly 2 1/2 years ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the former couple tell us ... they actually split nearly 2 months ago, but kept it on the down low. We're told the breakup was civil. They're still friendly but simply grew apart.
We're told the breakup had nothing to do with recent stories of Casper's sexual escapades. One source put it this way: "Casper has been a single guy and can text or see whoever he wants, but the idea that he was knowingly texting a transsexual is laughable." The source added, "He's not that guy, but like a lot of single guys online he obviously likes to look at a 'lil T and A."
Casper is in the process of moving out right now. We're told there was no rush because JLo's been on the road promoting her 10th album, AKA.
We're told Casper will be pursuing acting, which is why he took show directing and choreography off his Instagram.

John Mayer has returned to form! It's just like 5 years ago, when he was the funniest celeb in the TMZ universe.
We got John at Madeo Monday night, and he was hilarious. A photog brings up the buzz that his ex GF Katy Perry was writing a song about him, and John was cool with the prospect. Hell, he's already been through it with Taylor Swift.
We also asked John about what our photog called "scientific proof" that songs with his name in it shoot to #1.
The clip reminds us of some of the best TMZ videos ever.
I Didn't Cheat
WE WERE ON A BREAK!!!
5/27/2014 1:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katharine McPhee insists she's no cheating skank -- claiming she was SEPARATED from her husband last year when she publicly made out with another man.
TMZ has obtained McPhee's divorce docs -- she lists her date of separation from husband Nicholas Cokas as March 15, 2013 ... more than 7 months before she openly locked lips with married "Smash" director Michael Morris.
As we reported, McPhee filed for divorce from Cokas last week. She cites irreconcilable differences in the docs.
Also interesting ... according to the docs, McPhee wants to keep all the money she made post-separation ... which might explain why she picked such an early separation date.
McPhee and Cokas briefly attempted a reconciliation in March ... but that just didn't work out.
