Jennifer Lopez is taking business advice from Casper & her advisers are pissed

A week ago, everyone was all up in arms because it looked like Jennifer Lopez was going to leave American Idol high and dry after two successful seasons. Idol relaunched J.Lo’s career, and my interpretation of the situation was A) J.Lo was rude to leave Idol especially if producers really wanted her back and B) Casper Smart was probably involved in Jennifer’s decision. Well, Jennifer ended up pulling back a little publicly, and saying that she hadn’t really made up her mind as to whether she would return. But In Touch Weekly now says it’s a done deal – Jennifer is leaving, and Casper is behind it. And Jennifer’s advisors are pissed off.

In Touch Weekly has learned that in an effort to keep 25-year-old Casper Smart happy, Jennifer Lopez is about to undo the smartest career decision she ever made – and give up her job as an American Idol judge.

Jealous of all the time she was spending away from home – and with cute Idols like Phillip Phillips – Casper urged her to quit the plum gig and focus on their relationship instead. And remarkably, J.Lo is listening. Although Jennifer tweeted on may 17 that she hadn’t “decided what I am doing next year,” sources tell In Touch that the star has already informed Idol brass that she won’t be coming back next season.

“Casper would love it she would just chill out and travel with him,” explains a friend, adding that as ambitious as she is, J.Lo has also been overwhelmed – and he picked up on that. “She had her relationsip, music, movies, Idol and being a good mom,” the friend shares. “She loved being on Idol, but something had to give, so she took Casper’s advice.”

J.Lo’s closest advisers wish she hadn’t. most recall her career was in a lull before her Idol-inspired comeback.

“If anything should go, it should be Casper,” huffs the friend, who marvels at the increasingly important role Smart is playing in Jennifer’s life. “Everyone is annoyed that Jennifer is taking business advice from Casper.”

Jennifer’s friends worry that Jennifer has fallen too hard, too fast for Casper, and she barely knows him. An insider observes, “She’s a fool for love.”

I love “If anything should go, it should be Casper.” If only. If only Jennifer would do a cold, hard appraisal of her life, professional and personal, and decide to cut out the dead weight. Unfortunately, as I’m beginning to realize, Jennifer is kind of an idiot. She’s not just dumb in love – her love idiocy extends to her professional world because she keeps promoting her boy-toy and making him part of her industry. And now they’re going to do a reality show together too – so Jennifer totally has time to do a reality show with Casper, but not enough time for Idol, which pays her millions of dollars a year and relaunched her career.

The Enquirer also has a Jennifer story – this one all about how Jennifer and her mother Guadalupe are fighting over how to raise J.Lo’s twins. Lupe wants the twins to stay home in LA while Jennifer tours over the summer, but Jennifer wants to bring the twins (plus nannies) on tour with her. Marc Anthony agrees with Lupe, and it’s raising a lot of custodial issues (because Jennifer will have to take the kids out of state). Blah – it’s a boring story. Suffice to say, sources claim “Jennifer always wins out in the end” so the babies are going on tour, I’m sure.

    Silly people. She’s not leaving. It’s a negotiating tactic. Why do you think she would only sign a one year contract last year when they gave her a huge raise after pulling the same coy I might not be coming back spiel. Build the hype and play the game. She will come away with a even bigger contract. Smart girl.

  2. galaxygirl says:

    Idk why but that belt made me think of tampon packaging:P

  3. Maguita says:

    Isn’t it odd to think Casper Smart the wiser one between the two?

    JLo seems to be suffering from a Benjamin Button syndrome.

    You know, us professional women tend to grow more knowledgeable with age, and understand and manage better where to draw the line between our love life and career. JLo is going about it backwards, and seems to be shooting herself constantly in the foot lately. She used to be notorious where her career was concerned, leaving ex-husbands in the dust. And BTW, she did the same thing with Idol last year; She made them wait until the last minute before re-signing.

  4. NeNe says:

    I guess that is what happens when you become d*ckamatized. Sorry to be so vulgar.

    Personally, I think it would not be much of a loss if she left AI. I do not feel that she brings much to the show, but as others have posted, I believe it is most definitely a negotiating tactic. I would tell her, “just make sure the door doesn’t hit that big ego of yours when you walk out the door.”

    • Maguita says:

      Dickmatized (no a), but yeah, totally believe that!!

    • Feebee says:

      Some may find it vulgar but like a few other choice words it sums up the situation perfectly in one word.

  5. Lithe says:

    This is going to end well I’m sure.

  6. Lee says:

    What a smug face he’s got.
    Egos run amok.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Yes, he always does look smug. I say enjoy the ride, Casper sweetie, its going to be a short one for someone like you. Arrogant and not much talent. He should have a kid with her fast to guarantee his K-Fed paycheck in the future.

  7. Dana M says:

    I too think it’s a negotiation tactic for more money. Although, being with this Casper guy does lead me to believe she is an idiot. So I guess we will just see…

    • Raven says:

      She’s married several of them, so he fits right in. I agree with you that this is a negotiating tactic rather than her submitting to him.

      She should have rescheduled her tour after getting AI. Frankly, this is a full time job while it’s on.

  8. Lucy says:

    I’d love to see her end up broke…

    • Linda says:


      She is so obsess with attention. Why do you think she wants to be everywhere. Magazines, commericials, IA, tours,
      movie, etc. Maybe that’s why Ben Afflect left her. I see Jennifer Ganner with her kids more than I see this woman with her kids. I’m not saying she’s a bad mother but I rarely seen her with her kids.

    • aquarius64 says:

      …and watch Casper become a ghost b/c he dropped her for a new sugar mama.

  9. Toot says:

    We’re believing ITW now?

    I think if Jennifer leaves AI it’s because she probably has something else planned and that reality show is probably Jennifer trying to help promote her up coming tour more than Casper.

  10. lover says:

    fast forward two years j ho will have another toyboy and dumped casper with a payoff. this woman will never ever learn.. she is indeed a fool for love and dickmatized..

  11. Maritza says:

    She’s doing what she wants, good for her. Casper looks quite good when he is all dressed up. As for the kids going on tour well why not, they are very young, now is the age to do it before they give their own opinion to the matter. They’ll learn how hard their mom works.

  12. Marjalane says:

    ****Happy Dance****
    I love American Idol, (yes, I am just THAT shallow) and Jlo was a horrible judge- unless you were male and under the age of 25- It was painful to have them endlessly promote her “projects”. and push her “world wide hits”. (that one always makes me giggle)

    Go, and take your squatty boytoy with you!

  13. mel says:

    I read an article the other day and it basically implied that no one on Idol really “judges”…I thought the whole show was so boring. I could careless if JLO comes back. I still prefer her as an actress.

  14. lil ole me says:

    Ah yes, so wonderful to be dickmatized. Mark must not have gone down on her (sorry for the crude language, just callin’ it like I sees it).

    It boggles my mind how these celebrities can be so unaware of the image they portray. They are surrounded by “Yes Men”. What an odd life

  15. TruthTella says:

    Maybe I’m the only one but I just can’t imagine JLO taking advice from her bf on her career.

  16. Agnes says:

    oh, jlo… what we won’t do for some peen. ha!

  17. Tiffany says:

    He is holding her purse. He is holding her purse.If it was a man, I would think it is sweet to hold your lady’s purse. But with this clown its just funny. HA!! *falls out of chair and laughs. hard*

  18. I Choose Me says:

    Just noticed something. They have similar facial features. Hers are softer of course but it reminds me of the study that claims we are most attracted to people who look like us.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Is there a study about that?

      I have long thought that celebrities just want to f*ck themselves, so they find people who look like them.

  19. madonna iz doing it says:

    Nobody’s saying anything about MADONNA’S (another LEO) 25yr old Dancer Boytoy!!! With her 50+yr old azz!& they’re STILL GOING STRONG! People need 2 CHILL & let her get her some GOOD DI@%K for a change..hell..we ALL KNOW she’s been deprived for Y.E.A.R.S.!!!!! lol! 😉

    • anon33 says:

      Madonna is not idiot enough to take business advice from her 25 year old lover though, or to approve the advancement of stories that state she is doing that. That’s the difference here. She does not mix business with the d8ck that she’s getting (not since Ritchie, anyway.)

  20. Jover says:

    mel, there was an article in elle last yr wherein one of the producers of AI admitted only half the show was about “singing” the other half is of course the usual, ratings, egos, product placement, etc. Like all these shows they are fresh starting out and then became cliches and worn out;
    and JLO is truly one of our more detestable one percenters – how do celebutards avoid the wrath of the OWS crowd considering the interconnections between the media, Wallstreet, and the entertainment industry. I can’t imagine being JLO when your only thought 24/7 is about yourself. Disgusting.

  21. Lizzie K says:

    She’s clearly a smart woman… you don’t get where she’s gotten with the limited talent she has without being really smart, or at least shrewd.

    But she’s clearly a stupid woman, too. She has a truly dreadful instinct when it comes to relationships… all of her exes suck, and this latest wormy little thing she’s with is the worst of the lot.

    I don’t watch or listen to her, for me she’s only ever been tabloid fodder, and not very good fodder either. But if she goes off the AI rails for this loser, that will be interesting, in a train wreck kind of way.

  22. weird says:

    American Idol gave J.Lo a career comeback. If she still has ego and pride and money on her mind, that’s a problem because “you don’t bite the hand that feeds you”. I understand you can love non-celebrities, sadly I don’t believe Casper Smart is making her better and he seems fame hungry too. Like Lainey said, she will probably marry him and divorce but by then Casper has her money and a nice resume to keep the money flowing.

  23. sup says:

    her new rhino looks ridiculous. but as usual i do love her make-up.

  24. Rita says:

    Wow, this ‘hammer time’ ridiculous clothes plus being in love like this to one that looks like her son it’s so ridiculous but so expected from skinning animals alive jennifer looser
