Jennifer Lopez and Beau “Casper” Smart have broken up after five years of dating. Sources say JLo and Casper’s split was “amiable” and “natural.”
Lopez, 47, and Smart, 29, began dating in 2011 when he was one of her back-up dancers.
The two were recently together at Jennifer’s star-studded 47th birthday party in Las Vegas in July.
“Jennifer and Casper have split,” a source told People. “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. They will remain friends and they see each other. It was very amiable.”
Ironically, Jennifer Lopez was recently the target of pregnancy rumors, which she debunked by flashing her washboard abs.
Despite their 18-year age difference, Lopez said Casper had a calming effect on her life, and was fantastic with her 8-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
“We don’t really go out very much,” Smart told People in March 2016. “We both don’t drink, we don’t do any drugs, smoking, pills or any of the craziness. We don’t get wrapped up in the Hollywood life that can chew you up and spit you out.”
At age 47, Lopez is fitter and hotter than ever, thanks to a mostly vegan diet and fat-blasting Tracy Anderson workouts, as TheImproper has reported.
“Jennifer does the Tracy Anderson Method, which includes muscular structure work and between nine and 13 different exercises,” said Anderson.
Lopez is no longer 100 percent vegan, but sticks to a mostly vegan diet because she feels so much better on a plant-based diet.
“Even if you’re 70 to 80 percent vegan, it’s so much better having those vegetables,” said Jennifer. “It’s going to change your life and health.”
Jennifer, who’s divorced from singer Marc Anthony, is at peace and happy with her life after suffering through some high-profile breakups (such as ex-fiance Ben Affleck).
Looking back, JLo said she learned a lot and became a wiser, stronger person as a result of the difficult times she weathered.
“The adversity you come across in life may cause pain, but with pain comes growth and the opportunity to rise to the occasion as your strongest, best self,” Lopez wrote in her memoir, True Love. “You have to take care of yourself: your body, your mind, your soul. Be your own keeper.”
JLo, who has been married and divorced three times, hasn’t ruled out getting married again, but it’s not a priority for her.
