Is Casper Smart Gay?

From Radar:

Studly backup dancer Casper Smart has been dating Jennifer Lopez for seven months, but has exclusively learned one of his fellow dancers says Casper’s actually gay and is just using J.Lo for her fame and fortune!

Joshua Lee Ayers — a dancer at Hollywood nightclub Boulevard3, who’s worked on Glee and with artists such as Fergie, LL Cool J, Natasha Beddingfield and Ludacris — has been blasting Casper on his Twitter account.

“Check out Ur boy… And his low key homo ways,” Joshua wrote on a photo of Casper that he posted on his Twitter account in March.

In the photo, Casper is shirtless, wearing shiny gold short shorts obviously stuffed with something, a sparkly bejeweled belt, a scarf and a deer hunter hat while surrounded by other shirtless men in their underwear.

On May 24, Joshua posted another photo of Casper showing off his cheekbones with the caption: “I know what I know, Not love, a lot of business and public relations.”

Joshua and Casper appeared in the 2010 dance flick Step Up 3D together and have done several dance gigs in the past.

As previously reported, Lopez, 42, and estranged hubby Marc Anthonyannounced their split last July and only four months later she was openly dating her 25-year-old backup dancer boy toy.

“Casper is not gay. These comments are born from envy and jealousy,” the couple’s rep, Mark Young, told

“It must be a slow news day.”

And that picture of Casper in the shiny gold short shorts, since I know none of you will be able to go on without it:

Honestly, I think the most ludicrous part of this whole thing is how Radar called Casper Smart “studly,” because, you know, no. But I don’t have any problem believing that Casper is gay and is just using Jennifer for money. It’s not something that I really ever considered before, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was true. I mean, he’s obviously using her for money and for fame, so the idea that he’s gay as well is really just an additional reason to give an “oh, Jennifer,” isn’t it?
