Is Jennifer Lopez having déjà-vu? She already married a back-up dancer once, Chris Judd, and we all know how that turned out…IT DIDN’T.
So anyways, J.Lo hasn’t learned from her mistakes and is dating another non-famous backup dancer. His name is Casper Smart and he’s only 24. A world famous singing sensation dating a 24 year old dancer, who does that remind you of…of right, MADONNA. If J.Lo gets scary “pilates” arms and starts speaking with an almost-British accent, I’m quitting this country.
So anyways, J.Lo and this Casper dude met this summer when Casper started dancing back-up for her. At first the duo were “just friends” but “boss and employee” would be more like it, seeing as he’s hired to do step-touches behind her.
However, over the months their relationship has grown more romantic.
“Yes, they are dating and having a good time,” a source tells People, “They’ve been getting more open with their flirting for weeks.”
We know he is STILL one of her dancers as he posted on Facebook on Friday night, “In Palo Alto Bout to do a show w/ Jennifer Lopez for some1s birthday.”
But the same source says, “[it’s] a fun fling. It’s not meant to turn into anything more.”
Let’s hope for J.Lo’s sake that it doesn’t turn into anything more. While J.Lo is a talented and stunning woman, if there’s one thing she’s not good at it’s marriages.
Sources tell TMZ that the couple has become more flirty and touchy-feely in front of the other dancers and earlier this month the duo was seen out solo in NY, trying to hide from the paparazzi.
So what’s so great about this Casper guy anyways? Besides being named after a ghost, he dances shirtless at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood. He was also a dancer in Honey 2 and Step Up 3D. However, he did dance back-up to Beyonce during her 2010 Grammy Awards performance and was in the “Single Ladies” episode of Glee last year, so that’s pretty cool.
But whatever happened to J.Lo and Bradley Cooper? They were seen having a romantic dinner in NYC at Per Se eatery and were even spotted driving in a car together. Gasp!
According to a source, that fling is over. Apparently J.Lo “liked the thrill and the fact that Bradley has been pursuing her.” Oh so she was leading him on! Sounds like it.
J.Lo tried to dispel the rumors she was dating Cooper when she said she was trying to “concentrate on her kids and work.”
And by “work” she means “dance rehearsals” and 24 year old Casper Smart. Heyooo! Get it girl!
