Casper Smart, the 24-year old boyfriend of American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, reportedly scored a new look courtesy of his cougar. Following her divorce announcement from Marc Anthony in July, JLo has caught much flack for dating Casper, 18 years her junior. Despite the backlash, the couple’s love has only grown stronger. Casper was recently spotted joining Jennifer and her twins Max and Emme on Malibu beach.
In a recent report released by Life and Style magazine JLo is spoiling her boytoy rotten.
Smart went from a “very youthful and street look” to “wearing a US$460 Louis Vuitton belt, a $32,000 Rolex watch and $7100 diamond stud earrings.”
“He was an average kid, nothing really stood out” said an old coach to the magazine. “We sat in stunned amazement that this guy is dating J.Lo. It’s funny, but good for him!”
Psychotherapist Jenn Berman cautioned that Jennifer’s plan may backfire. “Couples turn each other on to new things. But when changing his style becomes an issue of control and dominance, it’s problematic. Then the man feels the bond is superficial rather than about what he brings to the relationship emotionally.”
While her relationship with Casper is being analyzed Jennifer’s career resurgence continues to soar. Her new talent show ‘Q’Viva’ with estranged husband Marc Anthony and Jamie King was just picked up by Fox to air it’s English-language version. According to EW, “The project grew out of Fox’s relationship with Jennifer Lopez after she signed on to judge American Idol two years ago.”
