Despite the ongoing rumors that Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are allegedly slowing things down in their romance, Lopez’s team tells Fox News Latino the rumors are “false.”
Lopez’s camp is denying the allegations that JLO and her man are on the rocks, after E! News reported that Lopez is “taking some time to think about things” after photos surfaced of Smart near an adult shop in NYC a few weeks back.
New photos of the Puerto Rican superstar and her boyfriend surfaced online this weekend as the two were all smiles on Sunday taking a stroll at the park with Lopez’s kids in Calabasas, Calif.
JLO is seen side by side with Smart, wearing a strapless white and blue beach dress as Smart carries her daughter 4-year-old daughter Emme. An older man walking in front of JLO and Smart is holding Lopez’s son Max’s hand.
Last week TMZ reported JLO and her boyfriend/choreographer Smart are threatening to sue Star Magazine and In Touch over what they call fabricated reports that Smart visited a gay sex club.
Now E! News says a source has come forward saying Lopez is rethinking her commitment with Smart.
“They are still together,” the source said according to the website. “But the photos have shaken her up. She is taking some time to think about things."
The site further quotes the source as saying that for Lopez “this feels all too familiar” since she "has never been great at picking men.”
"They have not split yet, but it's fair to say they are cooling off a bit,” the source told E! News.
“The pictures have created a distance between them. Even if Casper is telling the truth, and he didn't mean to walk into the doorway, it just proves how young and immature he is. He should have been more careful, he knows he is often being followed by paparazzi."
Last week a new video surfaced on Celebuzz, where a barber from Diamond Cuts says Smart went to get a haircut at the barbershop near the adult shop in Manhattan's Times Square.
He says Smart then went to the ATM, which appears to be right in front of the adult shop.
The barber told Celebuzz the allegations that Smart went into a gay peep show are completely untrue.
Still, the source tells E! News that Lopez is taking time to think if Smart “is worth all this trouble."
"Jennifer cares about Casper, they are certainly very close," the source said. "But he is not the love of her life. She can live without him. If she does decide to split from him she'll be ok.”
Despite the report from E! News, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton says another source claims Lopez is not ready to let go of Smart just yet.
"Jennifer is the kind of girl who doesn't like to be alone,” the unidentified source told PerezHilton.com. “Until she finds a replacement, I think, he's around."
