Rumor has it that Jennifer Lopez is dancing with a new fellow.
According to People, the Boricua superstar is reportedly dating one of her backup dancers named Casper Smart. A source told the magazine that the pair is “having a good time.”
“They've been getting more open with their flirting for weeks,” the source added. According to People, Smart has appeared in the FOX hit show Glee, CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, and 2010 film Step Up 3D.
The website reports that Smart posted on his Facebook page that he was about to do a show with Lopez for someone’s birthday. Another source reportedly said that the relationship between Lopez and Smart was just “a fun fling.” A representative for Lopez has no comment about this, according to People.
TMZ has a photo of Lopez and Smart together, which was reportedly taken while they were traveling in Europe. The pair began as friends, the website reports, and lately they have been touchy-feely in front of J.Lo’s other dancer. If the rumors are true, this wouldn’t be the first time Lopez gets involved with a dancer. On the set of her music video for “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” Lopez met Cris Judd and later married him in 2001. Lopez and Judd divorced a year later.
The romance rumor mill does not stop spinning for J.Lo. This fall, she was linked to hottie actor Bradley Cooper but in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, dodged questions about her current relationship status. She maintained that Max and Emme, her two children with estranged husband Marc Anthony, are number one in her life.
“I wouldn’t ever comment on anything until I’m in a serious relationship again,” Lopez told Entertainment Tonight. “So at the end of the day, it’s about them.” This past July, Lopez and Anthony announced they were splitting after seven years of marriage.
One more thing; Smart is 24, and J.Lo is 42. Do we smell another May-December romance?
