Jennifer Lopez might be ready to dump Casper Smart, ‘the spark is gone’


Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart might break up. Seriously! That’s what Radar’s sources are claiming. Of course, the tabloids claimed for the better part of a year that Jennifer just wanted to get married but Casper just wasn’t proposing. The tabloids also said Casper might be gay, so God knows. The proof of this alleged “cooling off” is that Jennifer went to DC last weekend with Casper, but she didn’t let him pose with her. And that they haven’t been photographed together in weeks.

Jennifer Lopez was basking in the spotlight as the guest of honor at the Human Rights Campaign national dinner on October 5 in Washington, D.C. There to accept the Ally for Equality Award, she happily strutted across the red carpet, posing for photos with several guests. But her much-younger boyfriend, Casper Smart, was not among them.

Although he did attend the awards, Smart was not photographed on the red carpet with Lopez. And has learned that a picture — or lack thereof, in this case — is worth a thousand words. In fact, they haven’t been photographed together in public in more than three weeks!

Now, multiple sources tell exclusively that the couple is headed for a breakup, and even had a mini-split this summer.

“Jennifer is pretty private about the relationship, but she’s been hinting that the spark is gone,” a source close to Lopez says. “She’s having a hard time ignoring the fact that her head has been telling her for a while that this thing with Casper isn’t forever. And now her heart’s saying the same thing.”

Says the source, “They’re obviously in very different places in their lives, and Jennifer wants to take responsibility for her life and not repeat the same mistakes she has made in the past. She enjoyed the relationship for what it is, but now that giddiness has turned to sadness.”

For Lopez, however, breaking up with her back-up dancer boy toy is easier said than done. According to the source, Lopez has tried to end their relationship several times, most recently in June. During a shoot for Viva Movil in NYC on June 14, “Everyone on set was whispering about the news that J.Lo and Casper broke up,” a set insider tells

“She seemed down and looked tired, like she hadn’t slept well. She holed up in her trailer for hours when she wasn’t needed for her scenes, and asked for vanilla Haagen Dazs ice cream and white flowers. It was obvious she was a million miles away.”

Casper, meanwhile, posted pics from a solo camping trip on his Instagram around the time of the shoot.

“Jennifer’s team started scheduling all her major appearances solo,” the source says. But Lopez eventually took him back — for now.

The last time the couple was seen together was a night out in L.A. on September 21.

One big reason Lopez can’t let go, the source says, is his close relationship with her twins, Max and Emme.

“It’s hard for her to think of how to it explain it to the twins,” the source says. “They love Casper. Jennifer’s probably going to at least stay friends with him so hopefully it won’t be as dramatic as it’s been talking to them about her split from their dad [Marc Anthony].”

Indeed, Lopez hinted she could soon be on the prowl in the October issue of Cosmo magazine. “I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated,” she said. “I bring a lot to the table.”

She “asked for vanilla Haagen Dazs ice cream and white flowers”? That seems kind of random but awesome, right? I would like Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream and lilacs sent to my room. NOW! And in an hour, I would love for someone to send fried chicken and a bonsai tree to my room.

As for the breakup rumors… not posing for photos together isn’t evidence. Casper and Jennifer have been doing that more often, like it’s some big deal to pose together on the red carpet. That’s why she’s paying him!!!! To pose and hold her hand and look loved up. But if the spark is gone, then good for her. I would really love it if she managed to untangle herself from this relationship without an engagement or marriage.

    “fried chicken and a bonsai tree”? Kaiser, you made my day :-)

  2. Anthea says:

    I thought of a comment and then I scrolled down and saw the photo of him with the glasses and now I am speechless. Good god.

  3. Scarlett says:

    Kaiser, you are comedy genius.
    S xoxoxxo

  4. Lempicka says:

    NO! It was such an epic, meaningful lovestory!

  5. Aussie girl says:

    He just does not appeal to me at all!! But fried chicken and a bonsi do!!!

  6. Zbornak Syndrome says:

    Hate this extreme, tapered, trouser leg thing. Only men with VERY trim legs and thighs can pull it off.

  7. Barrett says:

    I feel mean. But for my taste, he is ugly. That is what I think right away.

    • doofus says:

      Don’t feel mean…the man (and I use that term loosely) is REALLY unfortunate looking.

    • Lamb says:

      Don’t forget that her previous husband looked like Skeletor.

      • epiphany says:

        Agreed, Marc Anthony is no looker, but man, is he talented – that can be very sexy. This little boy has nothing.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Agree with you, epiphany. I’m not seeing why she is attracted to him AT ALL. Is his dong magical or something? Because that’s all I’m seeing. He’s not attractive, not even in an off beat way–which is made worse by the fact that he thinks he’s hot shit, AND he isn’t all that talented–he only got to where he is, ahem cough”lead”choreographercough, ahem one of many choreographers on JLO’s crew, BECAUSE of JLo. Dude would be just another backup dancer if it wasn’t for her. And he’s a douchenozzle about it. I can’t remember if it was a regular poster or not, but it was last year, when we were discussing this (right when he told E! that he was the lead choreographer), and one poster said that he was acting like a douche to the other backup dancers, pretending like he didn’t know them—this poster’s daughter/son was one of JLO’s other backup dancers.

        So I don’t understand what she sees in him. And yeah, Marc Anthony has some moves.

    • Petee says:

      don’y get it.She is so beautiful and successful.But she does have very bad taste in men.I think she never got over the Ben Affleck thing.She had a great husband in Chris Judd and just threw it away and had a affair with Ben,After he wouldn’t marry her she married Mark,Total rebound.taylor Swift take notice this is your future,It is okay to be single.

  8. Allie says:

    I love her jacket with the belt, which is shocking because I usually hate everything she does

  9. Caz says:

    If Casper has helped Jennifer feel safe and happy after leaving what seemed to be a not so great marriage, that’s a good thing. They don’t have to get married or be together for years. Not going to criticise either of them for it.

    • gg says:

      It’s not so great to be so codependent.
      And settling for a youngster you already know is going to be short term, not so great either.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        +1. If she just wanted some fun while she got over her ex, then I would understand this relationship—but it seemed to be like these two got very serious very fast. She has a pattern with men that seems very unhealthy to me. I don’t even know if I’d call it codependent, I think it’s just more dependent.

      • gg says:

        I agree – also, as predicted, the kids’ relationship with him is now in jeopardy. I think this is irresponsible to do this to them at such a young age. So how many times is she going to do this before she settles on somebody actually right for her for the long haul? Is this even possible?

        It’s mean and dumb to keep grabbing yet another “Mr. Right Now” over and over and doing this to the kids, so I hope she doesn’t do that…

  10. Frida_K says:

    He just looks so young, gay, and dumb. There’s nothing wrong with being young and gay (or even dumb for that matter) but it undercuts the notion that he’s a hot young stud that provides her with regular and amazing workouts in the bedroom.

    The next one should at least seem more straight, in my humble opinion.

    (Jenny, if you’re reading this…get a straight one next time!)


  11. Kim says:

    Ummmmm…. guest of honor at the Human Rights campaign national dinner? Who nominated her, President Berdimuhamedov? Sheesh! I guess these honors mean absolutely nothing. Lopez has made over $15 million playing for dictators and the like. I guess her camp’s excuse that she “didn’t know” has managed to fool quite a few. Now that she’s been honored for her commitment to human rights work, I wonder if she’ll give the money back or better yet, stop playing concerts for evil despots that trample the rights of their people. Doubtful. What a vile creature!

  12. gg says:

    Maybe he’ll run off to the tattoo place and get his Emilio Pucci neck tattoo finished just to piss off mommy.

  13. Christin says:

    She certainly doesn’t sound high maintenance, does she?

  14. Flora Kitty says:

    He screams rent boy and twink to me.

  15. jamz says:

    I hate that last picture he’s so scary looking with hair on his head.

  16. j78 says:

    I think he is wearing more foundation than her in the first pic…

    He can go back to dating men in 3,2,1…….

  17. Jaded says:

    The only human rights she knows about are her own.

    “I have the RIGHT to the best, custom-furnished trailer on a film set!”

    “I have the RIGHT to order 1000 white roses and a crate of Smarties with ALL the BROWN ones taken out!”

    “I have the RIGHT to behave like a monster diva to everyone who crosses my path!”

    Human rights my ass….

    • O says:

      I can actually see her making all those comments..

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      From what I heard, when she did “Maid in Manhattan”, you know playing an actual maid who didn’t like it when people ordered their maids/butlers around like they were subhuman—she was the biggest diva when it came to the perks. Apparently she had the producers pay for her entourage to travel with her, during the promotion, and wanted only the best when it came to hotels, transportation,etc. Contrast that to Natasha Richardson, who played the snobby rich woman, who was fine with no entourage, and was happy to take a taxi to the premiere in NY.

  18. teehee says:

    “Cos the spark is gone”…. oh, immature people, that is not why you dump someone. And a spark is not the only reason you should date someone, either…. that is just the kickstart of a relationship- and if you chose anyone even half way correctly, you will be able to sustain a relationship without any spark and just grow happier with passing time…. chasing after windmills!

  19. QQ says:

    I adore the bit about “Jennifer is pretty private about the relationship” surely that is what these pics are telling us!

  20. pnichols says:

    you love who you love and owe no one an explanation. we’ve all been there. let them be, together or separate.

  21. Dawn says:

    Well I would think using someone and being used must get old after awhile. If Jennifer did indeed drop him then I will go out on a limb and say that she already met his replacement. She seems to be the needy type to me.

  22. Madriani's Girl says:

    This kid is the poster boy for DERP.

  23. gg says:

    Who let her out of the house with this silly hairdo? She looks old in the above pic and with him, she looks like his mom.

  24. Madpoe says:

    these two had a spark?
    didn’t notice it when I was reading about ‘em. hmmph.

  25. Squeakie says:

    I’m probably the only one, but I think he is actually pretty sexy. She would look like a fool to marry him tho

  26. Relli says:

    So all that getting his tats done and watching Sons of Anarchy is not doing it for her anymore? hmm I cannot imagine why not.

  27. Samanthalous says:

    I think he is on the DL, but that coat with the fur OMG I WANT.

  28. Nicolette says:

    On to the next boy toy I guess.

  29. lisa2 says:

    I think the main problem is NOBODY REALLY CARES ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

    no one is really interested in this relationship. I think her going back to American Idol was proof for me that she is going to use the show to promote herself and him. He will be working with her and we are going to be hearing him and seeing him on the show a lot if the are still together. That is one of the reasons I didn’t want her back.

    • Josie says:

      Jennifer Lopez took I’m so in love pictures with Chris Judd and proclaimed he was the right one, so in love pictures with Marc Anthony and proclaimed he was the right one, and now she’s so in love with Casper Smart and he’s the right one. The only man that I can believe she did love was Ben Affleck but he didn’t want her! Casper Smart was a struggling dancer who lucked up and has lived a life of luxury with Jennifer Lopez, but she is an older woman and a younger man will eventually get bored with that. If these hints are really true, I can believe that its really Casper Smart who wants out of their relationship.
