Should we say Jennifer Lopez has a new 'boy on the block' — and a sexy dancing one at that? The 42-year-old mother of gorgeous twins, Emme and Max, is said to be heating things up with one of her backup dancers, Casper Smart, 24. A source confirms to Us Weekly that the two have been dating for a few weeks now.
TMZ released a photo of J. Lo's new guy cozying up to her backstage after a July 19 performance in Ukraine. They looked comfortable and happy together. Casper is no stranger to fame and extremely talented performers — he reportedly shared the stage with Lopez at a May 5 American Idol performance, and he's also performed with Beyonce and the late Michael Jackson.
An insider tells Us that their relationship is "nothing serious," but they were spotted in NYC being all cute together nearly a week ago. Is Bradley Cooper's New Mystery Woman Actually Jennifer Lopez?
As we know far too well, Ms. Lopez has had a handful of infamous relationships and breakups over the years. There was that first dancer, Cris Judd, who she was married to for less than a year (at least it was longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage). He must have been irresistible to her after appearing in her "Love Don't Cost a Thing" video.
Of course, Jen moved on to become "Bennifer" with Ben Affleck, which was a more widely publicized romance that led to a cancelled engagement. In 2004, we all thought Lopez had finally settled into love with sultry singer Marc Anthony, so we were disappointed when they split earlier this year. 6 Lessons From Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony's Divorce
We have a feeling J. Lo's new situation with Casper (who's way younger than she is, by the way) will end the same way, but who cares? Let the cougar mama have some rebound fun!
