Jennifer Lopez Goes Solo

01 Sep 2016

The singer splits with long-term boyfriend before surprising her ex-husband on stage

It seems that Jennifer Lopez has once again found herself unlucky in love, with her relationship with beau and toyboy of five years, Casper Smart reportedly coming to an end. 
 
Secret Split
TMZ alleged that the duo’s split took place after Casper opted to spend a night ringside at sporting event UFC 202 in Las Vegas, rather than accompanying JLo to a benefit in New York. However, sources say the breakup occurred on far more mutual terms: “They have not been together for a few weeks. It wasn’t anything dramatic and they were on good terms – it just came to a natural end.” The aource added, “They will remain friends and see each other, but they are not together. It was very amicable.” 
Neither JLo nor Casper has commented on the split, but both have taken to social media to express their feelings. Casper posted a snap of a note saying, ‘New experiment. Going to try to live old school for a little while. Going back to a time before social media. Going to focus on personal connections over a type and text existence.’ 
JLo, for her part, shared a picture of herself beside a sign saying ‘Protect your heart’ – advice we think she’ll be following! 
 
Friends Forever
After her latest love split, the A-lister was spotted heading to her ex-hubby Marc Anthony’s concert, where she joined him on stage for a duet. The pair ended their seven-year marriage back in July 2011, and have eight-year-old twins Max and Emme together.
The Papi singer recently revealed that she struggled with the breakdown of their marriage saying, “When it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, ‘this is too hard’.” She continued, “It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment and anger. But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.”
Well, we reckon it won’t be long before she’s snapped up.
