Jennifer Lopez, Casper Smart Split Coming? Tabloid Claims Couple Heading For Breakup

Are Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart headed for a split?

RadarOnline.com claims Lopez and her much younger beau are inching toward a breakup following a "mini-split" in June. She has reportedly tried to end the relationship multiple times, but his close bond with her twins, Max and Emme, has made it difficult. Still, Radar's sources claim she feels they are at very different places in their lives and doesn't want to repeat past mistakes.

“Jennifer is pretty private about the relationship, but she’s been hinting that the spark is gone,” a supposed source close to the 44-year-old said. “She’s having a hard time ignoring the fact that her head has been telling her for a while that this thing with Casper isn’t forever. And now her heart’s saying the same thing.”

GossipCop quashed claims of a Lopez-Casper split, citing an "actual" source close to the situation who said the recent report is "absolutely false."

In the October 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, Lopez discussed her love for her 26-year-old boyfriend, whom she has been dating since 2011.

"For me, it's about having a great partner to walk this life with," she said. "I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table. I'm not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person – love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship."

The two were last spotted strolling hand-in-hand while shopping around Beverly Hills on Sept. 17, E! News noted. He was noticeably absent when she attended the 2013 Human Rights Campaign National Dinner on Oct. 5 to accept the Ally for Equality Award.
