Days after a source told us that Jennifer Lopez‘s two-and-a-half year relationship with Casper Smart has been “all but over” for some time, new reports indicate the superstar’s affair with the backup dancer drew to a close nearly two months ago.
According to online reports, the scandal-plagued couple have been finished since April, quietly calling it quits in a cordial parting of the ways.
The break-up was not directly connected to Smart’s alleged recent communications with multiple transexual models via Instagram, according to reports, which stated that Smart has been removing his belongings from Lopez’s home as she tours in promotion of her upcoming album.
As we previously reported, a source close to the dancer, 27, told Radar that relations between the two had been strained with the “On The Floor” singer, 44, prior to the recent humiliation over his online shenanigans, as she kept him sidelined as her promotional tour hit her native New York.
The source said, dovetailing with the latest reports, that Lopez had essentially been wrapping things up with Smart prior to the scandal, removing him from his creative director position in her organization.
“He was basically demoted to her cabana boy.”
Last October, a source told us that the Selena star knew “the spark [was] gone” in the romance, and “that this thing with Casper [wasn’t] forever.
“She’s having a hard time ignoring the fact that her head has been telling her for a while and now her heart’s saying the same thing,” the source told us at the time.
In the meantime, one of the transsexual women Smart had allegedly exchanged messages with, Sofie Vissa, continues to attract attention for her involvement in the fiasco, with Vivid Video extending an offer to the 23-year-old bikini model for a sex tape to cash in on her 15 minutes of fame.
“We don’t normally do transsexual celebrity tapes,” Vivid founder Steve Hirsch wrote, “but in your case we just might make an exception.”
