Star: Jennifer Lopez “will go broke supporting Casper Smart’s champagne tastes”

After so much hand-wringing about Jennifer Lopez’s facially-challenged boyfriend, I think I’ve finally figured it out. Jennifer adores Casper Smart. He makes her feel young. They are enjoying themselves. But he embarrasses her. I know he embarrasses her because A) She took down the loved-up Twit-pic and B) Casper didn’t get to walk the Oscar red-carpet with her. Sure, Casper was her official date for the post-Oscar parties, and he got to be introduced to everyone as Jennifer’s “boyfriend.” But the fact that he didn’t actually go to the Oscars with her? That says something. That says that Jennifer has a smidge of self-awareness. It shows that she might not end up marrying this one. Still, the tabloids are trying to convince us that Jennifer is poor victim being used by her boy-toy!

While Casper Smart may have helped Jennifer Lopez heal from the heartache of her divorce, Jen’s new love is tearing her life to pieces!

“Jen’s friends are concerned that Casper is using her for fame and fortune,” a source tells Star. “They think after he cashes in, he’ll dump her like yesterday’s news.”

Jen seems to be indulging 24-year-old Casper’s every whim – “Everyone’s worried that Jen will wind up with a broken heart again and humiliated. It’s so obvious to everyone but Jen that he’s using her.”

Meanwhile, Casper is living it up on J.Lo’s dime. She pays Casper $10,000 a week to support his new life of luxury.

“He doesn’t have his own money… and at this rate, she’ll go broke supporting his champagne tastes.”

He’s even exploiting her business contacts. “Casper needles Jen to introduce him to music executives and entertainment big-wigs,” says the source. “Jen bends over backwards to please him.”

And her relationship is ravaging her friendships. “Jen dumped two longtime girlfriends because they were slamming Casper… Jen exploded, calling her friends traitors. Ultimately, she chose Casper over her pals.”

While J.Lo refuses to see the warning signs, sources say this love is doomed to disaster. “Casper is a jerk. Eventually Jennifer will learn this painful truth.”

I’m not sure if I buy this dynamic. While I could believe that Casper is partly a user and a famewhore, I also think he’s just… young. He’s attached himself to this older woman who is very, very famous, and he’s figuring it out as he goes along. That’s how I’m reading it – he wants to make her happy, and he’s not pushing things. Plus, I’m guessing that Casper knows, somewhere, that Jennifer is kind of embarrassed to be dating him.

    i always try to see the positive.

    isnt it a sign of emancipation that more and more guys look for on old lady with money and offer her sex? just as women now should be able to lead a global company guys should be able to trade sex against cash.

    casper smart is a pioneer. he does all of that in the name of equality. god bless him.

    • izzyvalentine says:

      Exactly! If men can have trophy wives, why can’t women have boytoys? If an unemployed woman marries a rich, older man, she is (usually) not judged for it. And neither is he. But God forbid an older woman wants a younger man to make her feel good, and in return she lavishes him with gifts. I’m not sure if you were being sarcastic or not, but regardless, I agree!

      • Julie says:

        i was exaggerating (just a little bit) but there is a point in it.

        i mean i always looked down on women who had sex with guys like flavio briatore only for the money. if guys now also step that low thats “good”, its tells us men and women can be pathetic. im also sure it’ll help understand men that not all women are chasing only the money. (same with cheating it was only blamed on the guys but now people see both genders are cheaters)

        what i dont like in both cases is that the focus is so much on the money. if an older woman and a young guy or an old guy and a girl have fun just for the fun of it or because someone is a lot more experienced, cool. but not if you bone someone who is digusting just because he is rich.

        though Jlo is hotter than flavio briatore. casper gets a nice body and money.

      • autumndaze says:

        I have to disagree. Lowering ourselves to the standards that some men use to justify trophy wives or dating women younger than daughters is not emancipation.
        It only says that there are also women of means out there who are as fearful of aging and irrelevance as some messed up middle-aged men.

  2. Marjalane says:

    It’s hard to believe that Casper the friendly boytoy has the upper hand in this…although given the type JLo has dated and married before, maybe she likes to be bossed around by skeevy men.

  3. Bite me says:

    What happened to j.lo baby hairs… Her edges look think

  4. dorothy says:

    Hey, being needy and clingy is very expensive.

  5. Hayley says:

    His hands look really small. Just wondering if his feet and….. well, anyway, just wondering.

  6. Julie says:

    well in general there arent many women at the level of both women you mentioned.
    i would also take a guess that if you want to have such a huge career you will need someone who supports you. i dont think a toyboy can handle that. if i look at the bigger names in hollywood most men there also have longterm relationships. hanks, huffman, spielberg for example.

    the media is far harsher on women in the spotlight. i would also think that women need more mental support than guys because of that.

  7. dorothy says:

    Where are her children? I mean he doesn’t count…her smaller children. Does she even see them anymore?

  8. ladybert62 says:

    She gets no sympathy from me – if he takes her for a lot of money I dont care.

  9. Leticia says:

    She is foolish when it comes to men.

  10. Ravensdaughter says:

    He’s not even that attractive…

  11. Shelly says:

    I’d believe that he was using her if she was ugly and looked old. But she is beautiful and does not look her age at all. I am sure he finds her hot and probably can’t believe his luck that he gets to be with her every night. I’m sure he is also enjoying the lifestyle, but I would enjoy the lifestyle, too, lol. I also highly doubt he is going to make her broke. LOL! She is super rich, please!

    • Julie says:

      i agree. 10,000$ might be a lot for us per year but for JLo its nothing per week. its “only” 520,000$ per year, she earns more than that.

      as i said above casper gets the full deal, money and a nice body. im sure he would hit it for free.

  12. TruthTella says:

    If she hasn’t gone bankrupt supporting her own tastes she isn’t gonna go broke supporting his lmao… isn’t she worth like $200m?

  13. butch says:

    god I hope he knocks her up! Jen’s amazing. Love this woman. Get some lotion in that basket girl!

  14. butch says:

    holla @truthtella …truf that

  15. truthful says:

    uh because he’s ugly that’s why…no but seriously, I think they will get married and I think she did not have have him on the red carpet–because SHE wanted to save HERSELF AND him the ridicule.

    I wanted her w/that video guy, the tall good looking one BUT if she likes it then I love it.

  16. skuddles says:

    It would serve her right if it turns out he’s just using her and dumps her in the end. Her ridiculous ego could use a good jolt of reality.

  17. Angiele says:

    is her self esteem that low? I would never pay a guy to be with me even if I was rich. That says a lot about her.

  18. z says:

    OMG…. I think Jennifer is going through a midlife crisis and having such a young boyfriend is a way to keep her youth. She likes the attention she gets for having a boy toy but I don’t think she realizes he is just using her to his advantage. She is in her early 40′s and she has 2 twins under 4 years old. By the time her kids are 20 she will be in her early 60′s. She is not getting any younger and having kids at her age is not the same as having them when your in your early 20′s or 30′s. Instead of spending and wasting her time on this gold digger boyfriend she should be using her energy on her kids.

  19. crtb says:

    Was anyone expecting him to do something different?

  20. Dredz says:

    A 20+ years younger BF who follows her around, ready to do whatever and go wherever, if Clooney can do it, why not J.Lo?

  21. Maritza says:

    I’m sure they both enjoy being together for as long as it takes and they both know the odds of them lasting is very slim because of the age difference. I doubt they will ever get married because she hasn’t even divorced yet, why has her divorce taken so long?

  22. barb says:

    I think they’re together for a reason. They each are getting something good out of it, or they wouldn’t be there. I doubt that it will last…so lets hope she doesn’t jump into another marriage quite so quickly.
