Jennifer Lopez might not admit that she’s more than just friends with her backing dancer Casper Smart. But the rumoured relationship seems to be heating up - the couple has been photographed cuddling on a beach in Hawaii.
J-Lo, who split from husband Marc Anthony, the father of her twin babies, in July 2011, is believed to have struck up a close relationship with the 24-year-old Smart just weeks afterwards.
The singing diva has refused to confirm or deny reports about her alleged new man, saying, "I told everybody... 'Until I'm in a really serious relationship, because of the babies, I'm not really gonna be commenting on my personal life.'"
But Jennifer’s has now been snapped cosying up to Casper for the first time since news of the budding romance broke earlier in November.
In the photos, obtained by TMZ.com, Lopez is seen dressed in a skimpy black bikini as she reclines on a luxury beach bed beside Smart, while another shot shows the new couple cuddling.
