Casper Smart is using the L-word now when he talks about his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez. She is rich and famous and 18 years older than he is; she is also still legally married to Latin singer Marc Anthony. The two have been shacking up very publicly since she and her famous husband split. After seeing them on the red carpet together promoting yet another one of the celebrity couple’s joint business ventures, the backup dancer turned romancer took to Twitter.
Page Six reports, “…while Smart and Lopez‘s relationship seems to be progressing quickly, Lopez did spend time with estranged husband Marc Anthony on Saturday, promoting their television show ‘Que Viva’ at the Television Critics Association Press Tour. At one point the two were even snapped holding hands.”
That must have been quite a big deal emotionally for the estranged star celebs.
The site then said, “Perhaps Smart felt a pang of jealousy…,” prompting to start tweeting the intimate philosophical details about his romance with JLo.
What did he have to say about love and loving Jennifer Lopez, possibly trying to taunt Marc Anthony? (A man who, for the record, has also started dating a 24-year-old model girlfriendÂ—apparently to get even with Lopez for her PDAs with her backup dancer in front of the press and their twin celebrity kids.)
“Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant. Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite,” says Casper Smart. “Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining. We should all honor our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts; Love and be happy!”
Wise words from a twenty-something boy toy dating one of the sexiest and wealthiest middle-aged women in America. As a judge on American Idol, she’s rumored to earn a whopping $20 million alone for one seasonÂ—and that’s not factoring in all the money she makes doing commercials for Kohl’s department store, the new FIAT 500, and L’Oreal giving her celebrity endorsements to marketing campaigns for luxury products. She’s also making bank on her music sales and movies, too.
Perhaps that’s why it has been so easy for Casper Smart to overlook an age difference or her relationship history. His tweets would have been even funnier if he had told Marc Anthony’s girlfriend to close her eyes (rather than her ears) and just enjoy the ride.
He’s definitely got the better end of the deal all the way around in this love triangle turned square. If they are in love for real right now, most fans simply don’t see it. What’s more, to date, she has not convincingly confirmed it despite the fact she obviously enjoys lavishing him with expensive trips and her affection.
What do you think? Will the relationship last for these two? Sound off in the comments section below. Does anyone but Jennifer Lopez think Casper Smart is cute?
