After almost two and a half years, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are dunzo! But it seems the split happened quite some time ago and has nothing to do with the recent sexting scandal.

TMZ reports that sources close to the couple reveal J.Lo and the 27-year-old backup dancer ended their relationship nearly two months ago, but kept it hush. The two are reportedly still friendly, but grew apart over time.

"It has actually been an amicable process that started a few months ago," an insider told Us Weekly. "It wasn't an easy decision, but they decided to stay friends...Their relationship couldn't work with the distance. He started trying to establish his own life and career, and she is so focused on hers, and they just couldn't be all about each other anymore."

Lopez and Smart began dating back in November 2011, roughly four months after her split from Marc Anthony.

And for those wondering how J.Lo is taking it all, a source tells Us Weekly she is "doing fine" and busy promoting her upcoming album, A.K.A.
