Jennifer Lopez is rumoured to be on rocky terms with her beau of two years, Casper Smart. The 44-year-old American Idol judge is reportedly considering breaking up with the former backup dancer, who is 18 years her junior.
“They are bickering, and it’s clear to the people around them that there is an irritation between them at the moment,” a source recently reported.
Earlier this month, Lopez attended a Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington all by herself – an unusual occurrence for the typically close couple.
Though the split is not yet confirmed, it would be a major change from this past January, when the star gushed about Casper to Harper’s Bazaar. "He's fantastic; he's like my best friend. I can tell him everything, when I'm feeling down, when I'm feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love and support," she said.
The “Jenny from the Block” hitmaker was previously married to fellow singer Marc Anthony, but their marriage is said to have broken up due to jealousy and and control issues.
The mom-of-two has been busy the past few months producing her ABC Family Series The Fosters. She is also scheduled to return on camera as a judge for the 13th season of "American Idol," for which she’ll rake in an expected $15 million salary.
Meanwhile, Casper publicly denied the rumours this morning. When asked if the two were still together, he replied jokingly: “Last I was informed we were.”
