He's only a few weeks into his romance with Jennifer Lopez, and Casper Smart already has to contend with his family blabbing to the tabloids. His dad is quoted as telling the London Daily Mail that the dancer is a newcomer to the game of love.
"I don't remember any girlfriends in the past," says his father, Roy. "Certainly nothing serious. He's been an elusive kind of a guy with girls. He never brought any girl home or anything. I thought he was single, but he doesn't really tell me about his love life."
Still, that doesn't stop him from weighing in on the relationship, which began with some calculated PDA before seguing into a touchy-feely Thanksgiving getaway to Hawaii with J.Lo's 3-year-old twins.
"He just wants to keep a lid on it," explains Papa Smart. "They're friends, they're on the road together. He told me she's a nice girl. She's regular, but he didn't let any of us believe it was anything more than just a working relationship."
He also confirms what we already assumed about a 23-year-old backup dancer who managed to woo a thrice-married celebrity nearly twenty years his senior.
"Nothing bothers him," says his dad. "He's a confident guy. He's got a good head on his shoulders, but he's pretty shocked at the all the interest in him. He doesn't drink. He doesn't do drugs. He's a Christian and has got his head straight."
