Lopez and Smart, a dancer and choreographer, originally began dating in 2011. He quickly became immersed in the superstar’s life, both personally and professionally. In addition to choreographing a number of Lopez’s performances and music videos, Smart grew close to the singer’s two children, Max and Emme, from her marriage to Marc Anthony.
In the spring of 2014, Lopez and Smart called it quits for the first time. They continued to spend time together, however, leading to false reports of a reconciliation. It was several months before they formally reunited as a couple.
The relationship seemed to be going strong over the last year, and even just last month. Casper joined Lopez in Las Vegas to celebrate her 47th birthday with multiple parties. But the romance has once again run its course, at least for now.
In the weeks since Lopez’s July 24th birthday, they decided to part ways. Gossip Cop is told they still intend to stay friends, and it seems possible they could work things out once more. The breakup news comes exactly three weeks after Gossip Cop corrected a Life & Style cover story that falsely claimed Lopez was pregnant. Smart confirmed our accurate debunking by retweeting our bust.
