The reports to date can be summarised as follows: 1) Smart is King Of The Help, who alternates between sleeping with the boss and being a glorified chauffeur 2) he receives a five-figure monthly stipend from his girlfriend to keep up with her lifestyle 3) she deigns to slum with the help because he’s the only one who asked her out 4) they’re living together and possibly engaged and planning to adopt, although the aforementioned is just Smart’s insidious way of making himself indispensable 5) she literally introduced her kids to Smart right away and now they call him “Daddy Casper” and “Poppa.”
Those are tabloid stories, but Lopez is sending some mixed signals about how she feels about him. She takes him everywhere and was expected to walk the 2012 Oscars red carpet with Smart. However, she opted to walk alone and meet him at the Vanity Fair after-party where, admittedly, she introduced him as her “boyfriend.” And she tweeted a Valentines photo only to hastily delete.
So now Star is examining the relationship dynamic and their motives, claiming that Smart is a manipulative leech who’s using Lopez.
“[Jennifer's] friends are concerned that Casper is using her for fame and fortune,” a source tells Star. “They think after he cashes in, he’ll dump her like yesterday’s news.”
[Jennifer] seems to be indulging 24-year-old Casper’s every whim. “Everyone’s worried that [she] will wind up with a broken heart again and humiliated. It’s so obvious to everyone but [Jennifer] that he’s using her.”
Meanwhile, Casper is living it up on J.Lo’s dime. She pays Casper $10,000 a week to support his new life of luxury.
“He doesn’t have his own money… and, at this rate, she’ll go broke supporting his champagne tastes.”
He’s even exploiting her business contacts. “Casper needles [Jennifer] to introduce him to music executives and entertainment big-wigs,” says the source. “[She] bends over backwards to please him.”
And her relationship is ravaging her friendships. “[She] dumped two longtime girlfriends because they were slamming Casper… [She] exploded, calling her friends traitors. Ultimately, she chose Casper over her [friends].”
While J.Lo refuses to see the warning signs, sources say this love is doomed to disaster. “Casper is a jerk. Eventually Jennifer will learn this painful truth.” - via Star Magazine, Celebitchy (with edits for readability).
