Just yesterday, word got out in the press that things were heating up between Jennifer Lopez and her rumored new fling, backup dancer Casper Smart. Confirmation of it comes today, as several photos have emerged online.
After the divorce from Marc Anthony, JLo threw herself in her work. While traveling through Europe to perform, she became closer to one backup dancer in particular, word has it.
His name is Casper Smart and he’s 24 years old. The two were just friends at first, reports say, but became intimate sometime this summer or perhaps a bit later.
Now, TMZ has irrefutable proof that the two are actually an item, which, once more, proves there’s never smoke without a fire.
“Jennifer Lopez and her new boy toy BF Casper Smart continued their Thanksgiving weekend romp in Hawaii, cozying up on the beach this morning ... in the first photos of the couple since word of their relationship got out,” the e-zine says.
One photo shows the two soaking up the sun side by side, but a second one leaves no room for doubt as to their relationship, since they appear to be making out.
Before being linked to Smart, Jennifer was believed to be romancing Bradley Cooper. A photo of the two in a car outside his home seemed to confirm, at the time, that they were dating.
When asked directly about it, JLo said she’d rather not comment in any way on her personal life, since she is a mother of two and couldn’t afford to have her love life backfire.
However, she did say that she planned on saying something publicly should she ever enter again in a more serious relationship, as we also informed you at the time.
For the sake of argument, though, the media and the blogosphere consider the romance with Smart just a rebound thing, so chances of her talking about it are slim to none.
