Sad news for Jennifer Lopez, as it’s been reported that the pop star has split with her dancer boyfriend, Casper Smart.
J-Lo, 47, and Casper, 29, have reportedly called time on their relationship after five years together. It’s thought that the pair are still on amicable terms and remain friends, after a source confirmed to People magazine: ‘It wasn’t anything dramatic and they were on good terms’
‘They will remain friends and they see each other, but they are not together. It was very amiable.’
After the news of the break-up, TMZ have since reported that it was Jennifer who made the decision to end their relationship.
The pair met in 2011 when Casper was a back-up dancer on Jennifer’s tour, just a few months after the star split from her third husband Marc Anthony in July 2011. It’s not the first time Casper and the pop princess have split – in 2014 they called time on their romance, and reportedly broke up briefly earlier this year before getting back together.
Opening up about the previous split to US chat show host Wendy Williams, Jennifer said: ‘I was (single).’
‘We broke up for a little bit. We’ve done that a couple of times.’
When Wendy asked: ‘How does that work? In my mind, when you fight with a man and break up, he’s running out of the house with vases crashing at the front door’, the mum-of-two replied: ‘No, no, it’s not that dramatic. It’s like, bye, then we get back together and then, hi.’
Jennifer has eight-year-old twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximilian David Muñiz, from her relationship with Marc Anthony. She was previously married to Cuban waiter Ojani Noa, before dating rapper Sean Combs and then marrying dancer Cris Judd. J-Lo was also famously engaged to actor Ben Affleck, but the pair split in 2004 and the star then tied knot with third husband Marc Anthony.
