Sad news out of Hollywood today, as TMZ is reporting that Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have broken up.
In other news: Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart were apparently still dating.
The reports that the couple is dunzo come on the heels of rumors that Lopez is pregnant at the age of 47.
We think it's safe to say you can add this to the pile of evidence that those rumors are bogus.
There's no word on why Lopez and Smart called it quits, but insiders say it was Lopez who pulled the plug on the relationship.
The couple first started dating way back in October of 2011...
But it's anyone's guess as to how many times they split up and got back together.
Part of the reason for that is that Jen and Casper intentionally sent mixed messages about the status of their relationship.
Insiders say Lopez and Smart faked a breakup in 2014 because they were sick of the public scrutiny of their relationship.
From the start, the pairing was a subject of public fascination ... and a fair amount of puzzlement.
At 29, Smart is 18 years Lopez's junior and was a struggling professional backup dancer when they met.
Not what you expect from a woman who previously dated men as successful as Diddy and Ben Affleck, but as several fans pointed out over the years, male celebrities date and marry young, attractive nobodies all the time.
So we're not throwing shade over the age difference, but we're still pretty happy to see these two go their separate ways.
There were multiple signs that the relationship was less than stable, not the least of which were the multiple breakups (fake and otherwise).
We don't know if J-Lo called things off face-to-face or if she just ghosted Casper, but either way, it was probably a smart move.
We'll show ourselves out.
