Jennifer Lopez Opens Up About Casper Smart RelationshipPublished by Natasha Fierce on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 9:06 am.
Could Jennifer Lopez’s romance with 25-year-old Casper Smart be the real deal? The pop superstar swears to heaven that it’s serious, but we’re not saving any dates just yet.
In an interview with People, Lopez opens up about her relationship with the former club dancer, who is eighteen years her junior, claiming that Smart helped her get through some tough times. “I just got out of a big, heavy, devastating thing, and he’s helped me heal,” she says. “He’s been there for me.”
Lopez seems to get how her relationship looks from the outside. “I ask him, ‘Why don’t you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?’ And you think, ‘How long is this gonna be?’ You think, ‘Okay, in 10 years I’m going to be like this and you’re going to be like that’ and … men at that age are … I think all different things,” she reveals. “The truth is we don’t know what’s going to happen. We’re loving this moment right now. We make each other happy.”
Smart was on J. Lo’s arm at the Golden Globes this past Sunday, where he got an awkward intro to two of Jennifer’s exes, Ben Affleck and Diddy. She also made him the head choreographer on her worldwide tour and agreed to produce and appear in a reality show chronicling his work.
Considering how far she’s putting herself on the line for a guy she met in a club, Lopez insists she has her eyes open. “Now I’m at a point where I have to recognize that these choices and things that happen are partly because of me and my decisions and I have to be more careful. So I am being more careful.”
Her friends may warn her otherwise, but looks like no one is going to keep J. Lo from being a hopeless romantic. We say, work it if you can get it, girl.
