This month, Jennifer Lopez celebrates her second anniversary with Casper Smart, which is two more than most people expected them to have. But the milestone has arrived amid rumblings of trouble (yet again), courtesy of Radar Online, which claims the pair are on the road to splitsville.
"Jennifer is pretty private about the relationship, but she's been hinting that the spark is gone," alleges a source. "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."
With so many body parts apparently talking to her, it's no wonder she's feeling a mite confused.
Anyhoo, the spy adds, "They're obviously in very different places in their lives, and Jennifer wants to take responsibility for her life and not repeat the same mistakes she has made in the past. She enjoyed the relationship for what it is, but now that giddiness has turned to sadness."
Still, the two looked plenty giddy just a few weeks ago, when the backup hoofer shared the "Weekend at Bernie's"-esque photo at left: "My boo & I having a #datenight out on the town!!"
Radar contends the couple also had a brief breakup over the summer but soon reconciled. In July, however, Casper gushed about his famous squeeze, tweeting, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my very very beautiful bear the nicest, sweetest, funniest, sexiest bear there is! Love u."
Lopez's rep did not respond to our request for comment on the rift report. But an insider tells us the breakup rumors are so much baloney.
J.Lo, 44, began dating Smart, 26, in October 2011, not long after calling it quits with third husband Marc Anthony. She has referred to him as her "best friend" who gives "endless love and support."
"For me, it's about having a great partner to walk this life with," she told the October issue of Cosmo. "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."
