Don’t we all have that one friend who consistently dates douchebags just so she can be dating someone? And you’re like “uh, I don’t think this is going to turn out well at all,” but you keep you mouth shut because she’s happy right now and you don’t want to get all in her business? But then she finally starts realizing what a douchebag he really is, and you’re thankful that she’s finally coming to her senses, but also secretly a little pleased with yourself that you called it from the beginning?
Her whirlwind romance with Casper Smart began last Novemberas what one source close to the couple told PEOPLE was “a fun fling.”
But now, nearly a year later, could Jennifer Lopez be preparing to leave more than just her American Idol gig?
“He’s moved into her life – and a little too easily, too,” the source tells PEOPLE. “I think her family is watching him closely.”
Lopez’s possible cold front comes amid tabloid reports about Smart: One claims he visited a New York City exotic massage parlor, while another reports he was at a peep show next door. (Photographs show Smart going up a set of stairs that lead to the spa.) Lawyers for the couple call the stories “false, malicious and defamatory.”
Those rumors coincided with her 43rd birthday, which they celebrated together in the city. But although they were all smiles as they were photographed heading to lunch, the source says “she’s getting frustrated with him” and she’s increasingly “short-tempered when she’s around him.”
This is a departure from the affection they displayed when they hit the town – and, recently, in a steamy music video for her single “Dance Again” (and again in a sweet clip during her current concerts for the song “Baby I Love U”).
But as Smart continues to tour with Lopez, a breakup may not be in their near future.
“Jennifer is the kind of girl who doesn’t like to be alone,” says the source. “Until she finds a replacement, I think, he’s around.”
An exotic massage parlor? You don’t say.
Look, I’m sure that Jennifer Lopez is the only person in the whole entire world who has seen Casper Smart and didn’t think “wow, Casper Smart is a jackass.” But Jennifer is a “romantic,” which means that the only thing that will truly break this spell is an even bigger jackass to come and sweep her off her feet. If only Ashton Kutcher wasn’t taken ….
