Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, choreographer Casper Smart, have split.
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart had been together since 2011
Casper Smart, 26, is taking a stand against rumors that he cheated on J Lo with a transgender model named Xristina Marie.
According to The Sun, Xristina Marie claims she hooked up with Casper Smart weeks before news of his breakup with Jennifer Lopez, 44, went public.
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart had been together since 2011 when Casper was her backup dancer and soon after Lopez split with then-husband Marc Anthony, with whom she has six-year-old twins. Their last public appearance together was on May 18th at the Billboard Music Awards.
Jennifer Lopez was rushed to safety after gunshots were fired in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, near the place she was filming a music video.
Security guards took JLo to a vehicle after hearing several gunshots about 400 yards from where she was filming on Sunday night in Fort Lauderdale.

Police converged on the area, but the people involved in the shooting were not found, although police detained several people at the scene.
Jennifer Lopez, 43, was in Fort Lauderdale to shoot the music video for Live It Up, her upcoming collaboration with Pitbull.
She was filming an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the set of her music video when the shots were heard.
Entertainment Tonight‘s Rob Marciano, who was interviewing JLo, reported that “Security scrambled [Jennifer Lopez] away” after the shots rang out.
He tweeted: “BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away.”
Rob Marciano added: “Can hear & see ambulances converging ~400 yards down the street.”
Before adding: “Police confirming: <<shots fired. no one hit>>. Whew.”
Security officials said Jennifer Lopez was secure in her vehicle when the incident was reported, but it’s bound to have brought back memories from the time she and then boyfriend P. Diddy were arrested over a shooting at a nightclub in New York in the late ’90s.
JLo is being supported on the shoot by her partner, Casper Smart, 25, who has brought his mother along too.
Jennifer Lopez has spent the last week with beau Casper Smart in Paris, believed by many to be the most romantic city in the world.
And while she has previously denied engagement rumors, Jennifer Lopez has once again prompted speculation regarding her relationship by sporting a very large rock on her ring finger.
Jennifer Lopez and her 25-year-old toyboy have been inseparable all week shopping, attending fashion shows and also a fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
But while she may be head over heels for her former back-up dancer, J Lo has insisted that her bling does not mean anything.
The popstar first sparked rumors that the pair was taking a big step forward in their relationship back in June when she was also photographed sporting a diamond sparkler on her ring finger.
But Jennifer Lopez was quick to deny the story on her website saying: “Rumors!!! Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got,” quoting her 2002 hit, Jenny From the Block.“No engagement!”
But the couple may have been unable to resist the influence of the City of Romance and sources say Casper Smart is besotted with the 43-year-old: “He’s madly in love with her,” the insider told Us Weekly.
“It’s not just that she’s his lover, she’s also his best friend.”
Jennifer Lopez opened up about her new man to Vogue earlier this year saying: “He’s adorable. He really is [sweet]. He’s a good egg. I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing.”
J Lo and Casper Smart first stepped out together in 2011, just a few months after her painful July split from crooner Marc Anthony.
Marc Anthony filed for divorce from Lopez, with whom she has four-year-old twins Max and Emme, in April after seven years of marriage.
Jennifer Lopez has been married three times, to Marc Anthony in 2004, Okani Noa in 1997 and Chris Judd in 2001.
