Jennifer Lopez’s Beau is “a Clown” Says Former Dance CrewmemberPublished by on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Some people may not believe in the blissful union of Jennifer Lopez and her beau Casper Smart, but a leader of Smart’s former dance crew does.
It was recently discovered that the J.Lo’s back-up dancing boyfriend was former member of the street dance collective, the Hip Pop Clowns, whose leader, Tommy the Clown, was featured in the hit documentary Rize.
Tommy spoke with the New York Daily News about his old dance crew member.
About Smart’s hoofing skills and his way with the spotlight and the ladies Tommy said: “He was amazing – I mean Casper had always been a spontaneous type of guy, the uniqueness of his moves [AND]the way he acted. Being on tour, you get a hold of that fame and it can get to you and he was a ladies man.”
But when it comes to Smart’s relationship with Lopez and whether Smart is in it for the fame, the dance pioneer believes it’s true.
“That is Casper’s ideal woman, J-Lo is fine,” Tommy said of the couple. “She’s the bomb, because she’s still athletic, she can work out, dance and she’s a mega star. Age ain’t nothing but a number.”
Giving his final assessment of why J.LO is into the younger man, Tommy offered this: “J-Lo is dating a clown, that’s what she wants, they [ARE]in a big old circus and the kids is happy because he is a clown.”
Whether that was a backhanded remark, we will probably never know because, well, it’s coming from a grown man who dances in clown makeup. But, we get the picture. Love is a funny thing.
