The Kristen Stewart-Rupert Sanders cheating scandal had one unexpected consequence: it made the other tabloids super-angry that they hadn’t exposed some huge scandal, so the other tabloids began going after Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart. Did Star Mag and In Touch Weekly completely manufacture their stories about Casper frequenting a popular gay cruise spot and/or getting “The Travolta” at a backroom massage joint adjacent to a peep show? Not really – considering there was photo evidence of Casper entering the place, the tabloids were just having some fun with it. Still, J.Lo got angry. She and her lawyers threatened to sue – although you have to wonder, what would be worse? If people think Casper is gay or if they think he’s getting backroom handies? Or both, I guess?
Anyway, whatever went down at that peep show/cruising spot/backroom handie emporium already happened. Although Jennifer and her lawyers are trying to get an apology, I doubt one will be forthcoming. Which makes you think… if Jennifer sufficiently embarrassed now? Is she finally willing to admit that making Casper her boyfriend wasn’t the best idea? Perhaps. This strange little piece appeared in People Mag on Friday – they really slid it in under the radar too, shoving it beneath their Olympic coverage:
Her whirlwind romance with Casper Smart began last November as what one source close to the couple told PEOPLE was “a fun fling.”
But now, nearly a year later, could Jennifer Lopez be preparing to leave more than just her American Idol gig?
“He’s moved into her life – and a little too easily, too,” the source tells PEOPLE. “I think her family is watching him closely.”
Lopez’s possible cold front comes amid tabloid reports about Smart: One claims he visited a New York City exotic massage parlor, while another reports he was at a peep show next door. (Photographs show Smart going up a set of stairs that lead to the spa.) Lawyers for the couple call the stories “false, malicious and defamatory.”
Those rumors coincided with her 43rd birthday, which they celebrated together in the city. But although they were all smiles as they were photographed heading to lunch, the source says “she’s getting frustrated with him” and she’s increasingly “short-tempered when she’s around him.”
This is a departure from the affection they displayed when they hit the town – and, recently, in a steamy music video for her single “Dance Again” (and again in a sweet clip during her current concerts for the song “Baby I Love U”).
But as Smart continues to tour with Lopez, a breakup may not be in their near future.
“Jennifer is the kind of girl who doesn’t like to be alone,” says the source. “Until she finds a replacement, I think, he’s around.”
The “source” could be Benny Medina. Maybe it’s one of Jennifer’s sisters. Probably not her mother – Lupe wouldn’t go to People Magazine with “concerns”. Lupe would just put on old-school Santeria hex on Casper and that would be the end of that. I tend to think the source is Medina, though – the “Jennifer is the kind of girl who doesn’t like to be alone. Until she finds a replacement, I think, he’s around” quote sounds like Medina. Because it’s true. That’s exactly what Jennifer is like. She cannot be alone. She cannot NOT believe her life is some kind of “fairy tale”. She cannot stop picking losers. Girl needs a dong intervention. Casper might need one too.
Hilariously, Radar has an even harder version of this – their sources are making room for Jennifer to (gasp!) dump Casper. For real!
Jennifer Lopez is on the verge of breaking up with her back-up dancer boy toy, Casper Smart, because the 43-year-old mother-of-two has come to the realization that she really doesn’t have a lot in common with the 24-year-old, and is beginning to feel like his babysitter, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“Jen is currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias, and Casper is the head choreographer of her show in which he also dances. It’s tough being on the road — this isn’t Jen’s first tour and she has been feeling more like Casper’s babysitter than girlfriend. Casper likes to hang out and party with the other dancers and that just isn’t Jen’s scene. She is all business and is the utmost professional. Jen is absolutely going to break up with him, they just don’t have a long term future together,” a source close to the singer tells RadarOnline.com.
As previously reported, Jennifer Lopez’s twins are proving to be a real handful on mommy’s current tour. According to an eyewitness, Max and Emme, both 4, have been running amok backstage while J. Lo rehearses for her sold-out concerts with Enrique — wrecking equipment and providing a general nuisance to the stage hands.
Jennifer and Casper began dating last autumn, just a few months after her seven-year marriage to Marc Anthony ended in July 2011. The first leg of J. Lo’s tour with Iglesias ends at the end of August in Miami, and the second European leg, begins in Portugal in early October. “Casper will most likely be sent packing when the tour ends in Miami. Jen admits that she fell for Casper and that he was exactly what she needed at the time to help get over her painful split with Marc, but she is just ready to move on now,” the source says.
Dear Jennifer: please dump him. I’ll understand if you wait until the end of the tour and everything, but please. Please. PLEASE dump him. If you dump him, I will love you again.
