According to TMZ, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart broke up after two and a half years of dating. The couple actually split two months ago, but didn’t go public with the break-up immediately.
Sources revealed that the split was civil and the two remained friends.
Namely, they grew apart and it’s possible that the age difference had something to do with it. JLO is 18 years older than Casper.
“It has actually been an amicable process that started a few months ago,” said a source close to JLO. “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.’’
Another source claimed that their break-up had nothing to do with the alleged text messages to a transsexual.
“Casper has been a single guy and can text or see whoever he wants, but the idea that he was knowingly texting a transsexual is laughable.”
The source added, “He’s not that guy, but like a lot of single guys online he obviously likes to look at a ‘lil T and A.”
Lopez is currently promoting her tenth album, AKA and Casper is in the process of moving out. Since JLO isn’t at home, Casper can take his time.
Additionally, the source says that Casper wants to pursue an acting career and that’s the reason why he took choreography and show dancing off his Instragram profile.
