Jennifer Lopez ditched her boy toy Casper Smart and was spotted in San Juan, Puerto Rico with her ex, Marc Anthony last week. The couple, who are parents to 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, announced their separation four months ago — so does this mean a reconciliation is in the works?
Not likely. The couple’s visit was all business as they filmed scenes for their reality show Q’Viva! The Chosen, which is like a Latin American version of American Idol.
Anthony hasn’t been linked to anyone since he and Lopez split; however Lopez has been linked with Bradley Cooper, who has just named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive. More recently, she has been spotted getting cozy with 24-year-old backup dancer Casper Smart.
Lopez, 43, met Smart when he became her backup dancer, appearing with her on American Idol when she performed “On the Floor” this May. The American Idol judge split from Anthony in July, however one source says Lopez and Smart did not start hooking up until recently, when they were spotted leaving the same New York hotel within minutes of each other.
Casper, who has also danced for Beyonce, Jordin Sparks and on Glee, reminds us a lot of her ex-husband Cris Judd, who was also her backup dancer. She met Judd on the set of her “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” music video and they married in 2001… and divorced in 2003.
Is Lopez looking for real love — or just a boy toy to pass the time? A source tells Us Weekly that Lopez “has really been trying to concentrate on her kids and work.”
I guess time will be the judge on this one, however Lopez always has Cooper to fall back on, as he has been “really trying to woo Jennifer in a big way.”
