A representative for Jennifer Lopez has denied a report published in Star Magazine alleging that the singer ran off and married Casper Smart, her current boyfriend and backup dancer.
Star reported that Lopez, 42, and Smart, 24, recently went to Mexico where they married and now, Smart wants to adopt Lopez’s two young twin children who she had with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
They also quoted a ‘source’ as saying, “Everyone in Jennifer’s inner circle thinks she’s lost her mind. Her mom, Guadalupe, flat out told her that marrying Casper will be the biggest mistake of her life!”
“Jennifer called her mom, sister and a few trusted friends from Acapulco … She said that she and Casper decided to get married in Mexico. Her mom … thought they had eloped, but Jen just laughed and said it was only a matter of time,” the source added.
After the story was published Lopez’s rep simply told Us Weekly, “This story is completely false.”
Lopez and Anthony divorced in 2011 and almost immediately Lopez began dating Smart. In an April issue of Vogue her manager Benny Medina says, “She’s not oblivious to her own reality right now, as in, ‘Damn, I’m 42 with a 24-year-old. Why?'”
Adding “We talked about it yesterday. She was just like, ‘It’s not even the age, Benny. It’s that I just came out of a relationship where I felt like I was kind of not getting what I needed. And I’m open! So somebody who steps in right now and is actually touching me in a way.’ It’s very fertile ground.”
