Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart lied about their breakup in order to better market their work projects.
Back in June 2014, Jennifer and Casper announced their breakup. Around the same time, Jennifer was promoting her movie, The Boy Next Door, which co-stars Ryan Guzman.
According to a new report, the whole “breakup” was a ruse so Jennifer could go on the promotional trail as a purportedly single woman, flirt with her co-star and generate headlines about an alleged fling.
TMZ reports, at most, Jennifer and Casper were apart for a few weeks over the summer of 2014 and then promptly got back together. And they’ve been in a committed relationship this whole time while appearing to be apart.
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart did NOT get back together, because we found out they were never really apart.
Sources close to the couple tell us … the break-up they announced in June was a business move. Multiple sources say in the spring they did stop seeing each other, but only for a few weeks.
We’re told JLo was hawking her movie, “Boy Next Door,” and honchos on the film felt creating a buzz that she was hooking up with co-star Ryan Guzman would help sell tickets. It’s hard to do that when you’re not single.
But the decision wasn’t one-sided. We’re told Casper was up to the same thing because he was shooting “Street,” a UFC fighter movie where he buffed up. Again, he was more appealing single. [via TMZ]
