Pair split amid sexting rumors

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart split amid rumors that the former backup dancer was sending steamy texts and photos to a transgender woman.

The split rumors are true and things are done between Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart. Their breakup was confirmed today, Friday, June 5, amid reports that the former backup dancer sexted with someone else recently.

After being together for 2 1/2 years, Lopez and Smart have gone their separate ways due to their relationship having grown apart. They have actually been apart for about six weeks now, sources claim. Rumors surfaced that their relationship was in trouble after Smart sent steamy texts to another woman, but the pair slammed these allegations.

"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 is reportedly "doing fine" with the split and is very "focused on promoting" her new album, while Smart is also in a good place with his career at the moment.

While the breakup is supposedly a friendly one, the rumors that Smart had been sending steamy texts and photos of himself to a transgender model spread like wildfire. Gossip site The Dirty claimed it had evidence of the photos and messages exchanged between the pair.

However, Lopez and Smart are adamant about these reports and their reps insist they had nothing to do with their split. A source in the know told TMZ that as a single man, Smart "can text whoever he wants, but the idea he was knowingly texting a transsexual is laughable."

The site went on to say that "like a lot of single guys online he obviously likes to look at a lil' T and A." But he and Lopez remain close friends and broke up mutually — they just "grew apart" and decided to pursue their interests separately.
