It looks like Jenny from the Block is a single woman once again.
Jennifer Lopez has split from Casper Smart after nearly three years of dating, a source confirms to Access Hollywood.
As it turns out, the relationship has actually been over for “close to two months,” the source explained, noting both J.Lo and Casper wanted to handle the matter “privately.”
However, the source said Jennifer, 44, and Casper, 27, remain “friendly.”
While the couple apparently split several weeks ago, J.Lo and Casper hit the red carpet together for the Billboard Awards in Las Vegas on May 18, and were also spotted hand-in-hand following the “American Idol” finale taping on May 20.
Back in October, Casper – whose real name is Beau Smart — spoke to Access Hollywood Live about rumors the two were on the rocks.
“Everything is good,” he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover at the time, when asked about the reports claiming he and Jennifer were headed for a breakup.
“Last I was informed we were [together],” he added.
Jennifer and Casper were first romantically linked around Thanksgiving 2011, following Jennifer’s split from Marc Anthony in July 2011.
