Jennifer Lopez is dating one of her backing dancers just four months after splitting up with husband Marc Anthony.
The American Idol judge has been seeing Casper Smart in secret for the last few weeks, but is intent on keeping the relationship a secret.
A source revealed, “They have been dating for a few weeks, but have been trying their hardest to keep it on the down low. They clearly like each other, but it’s not serious at this stage.”
Professional dancer Casper, who is in his twenties, was hired to work on her San Francisco show. He was also one of Beyonce’s dancers during her 2010 Grammy Awards performance, and according to his IMDB filmography, has appeared in 10 films including Honey 2 and Step Up 3D.
But the news has come as a blow for Bradley Cooper, who has been persistently pursuing 42-year-old J-Lo. A source revealed Hangover star Bradley has been “really trying to woo Jennifer in a big way.”
J-Lo obviously likes men who can dance, as she married another former dancer Chris Judd in 2001. They met on the set of her Love Don’t Cost A Thing music video, but divorced in 2002. She became engaged to Ben Affleck that same year but split in 2004, and was later married to Marc for seven years, with who she has three-year old twins Emme and Max.
