Casper Smart’s family is urging him to marry J.Lo so they’ll get a piece of the pie

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart
Like the Ellen and Portia story I just covered, I find this Enquirer story believable. It’s got an angle that we wouldn’t normally consider when it comes to a 25 year-old backup dancer being given a half a million a year to hang out with his older wealthy girlfriend – his family. Yesterday we heard that Lopez was hoping to marry “supportive,” “devoted” Smart just as soon as her divorce from Marc Anthony is final this October. A source told US that Smart “exists only for her.” Of course he does, this is the sweetest, highest-paying job he’s ever had!

So allegedly Casper’s family is encouraging him to marry J.Lo, because they’re hoping to get a piece of that pie. At least that’s what I got from this story. Here’s more:

“Some people in [Casper's] family are dirt poor and feel like they’re being ignored,” said a family source. “J.Lo has made sure that when she and Casper have been on trips together, most recently to Acapulco, he’s brought back presents for his mom, his twin sisters, some cousins and a few other people.

“The people who have been left out are jealous, and it’s created a big family feud.”

According to the source, one of Casper’s aunts is even flying in from Australia to try ad get in on the “family lottery”!

While those in the anti-Jennifer camp have accused of her using the 25 year-old backup dancer to make her.. ex jealous, those on Team J.Lo are pushing Casper to pop the question!

“They want him to propose before she changes her mind,” said the source.

The family insider said Casper, who has only been dating the 42 year-old [singer] for a little more than six months, has fallen “head over heels in love.” And he already has the engagement ring – a gold heirloom that belonged to his grandmother.

“She passed away about 12 years ago and her ring has tremendous sentimental value to Casper,” said the insider. “He believes that Jennifer will be touched by it, even though he doesn’t have the type of money that Marc Anthony had to impress her with expensive jewelry…

“Caster is trying to keep momentum in the relationship going and is hinting at throwing her a private party in August,” said the source. “Of course, his family members all want their invites!”

Someone needs to talk some sense into me, because the part about Smart getting his grandmother’s ring to propose sounded really sweet and romantic to me. I have such a weakness for proposal and romantic wedding stories. He’s surely head over heels for her too. And I don’t have a problem with the roles being reversed and a rich lady dating a guy who is struggling. (Relatively. I mean he probably made a good amount of money prior to landing J.Lo.)

I do take issue with the fact that he doesn’t seem to bring much to the table. He just turned 25! I don’t know if I could even go on a date with a guy under 30 and take him seriously, and I’m not even 40 yet. Guys just strike me as so immature at that age. This is what Jennifer wants, though. She wants a guy who will dote on her and be available for her all the time, because she’s incapable of being alone. Once the flush of new love wears off what is left? Maybe that’s why Lopez is hoping she can have a baby with him, sadly.

As for this guy’s family, of course they want some cash if they’re struggling. That’s how it works when someone comes onto a lot of money suddenly.

    All the best to la Lopez and mr. Smart

  2. ladybert62 says:

    Smart is smart about knowing what he has to do to get her money and I am not surprised that others want to feed off of him.

    Ms. Lopez is the stupid one and she gets no sympathy from me – she looks silly and desperate and everyone (except Smart) is laughing at her,

    CB – It’s the Larry King effect: Marry someone much, much younger, who in the beginning is absolutely impressed with the lifestyle. Dote on them, shine a bit of jewelry, than expect them to be there for you all the time, and shower you everyday with love and adoration in order to express their undying gratitude for saving them from a life of absolute averageness.

    But like Larry King, JLo is buying herself a much younger housewife, who would be falling for the kids’ nanny, or baseball coach. It’s just a matter of time.

    And how tacky is it that family, not even immediate family, feels absolutely entitled to your, or your spouse’s money? Auntie should truly stay in Australia, and appreciate a Christmas card from time to time.

  4. Madpoe says:

    Yes yes get a piece of that bubble butt pie- do a KFed and bounce and become a footnote in JLo’s VH1 behind the Music. Another man her babies call daddy.

  5. Rory says:

    Yikes, seriously? Like they actually think it’ll work? I thought she was smarter than that :( Wow.

    • WillyNilly says:

      What in JLo’s past ever made you feel like she’s intelligent when it comes to her love life?!

    • Hautie says:

      This relationship will not end well.

      And we will witness another Demi Moore style of meltdown. When the much younger husband, spends his anniversary shagging a random 20 year old.

      Jennifer will not be amuse when it all happens. But I have no doubt she will have that pre-nup in place when it all goes wrong.

    He probably didn’t have a “good amount of money” before her. He was a backup dancer. The good ones make ok money, but they still gotta hustle for dancing gigs, choreography work, and teaching classes. Not saying that makes him unworthy to date a rich lady; if it doesnt bother her and he makes her happy, then mazel tov.

  7. brin says:

    He not only doesn’t “have much to bring to the table”, he needs a booster seat to reach it.

  8. Franny says:

    He’s seriously only 25? I’m 24, and I can’t imagine anyone my age dating a 40+ mother of 2. Its strange.

    • Rhea says:

      Put a lot of dollars sign in front of them and you would get a surprise on how many people would jump on the chance of dating a 40+ with a kids regardless of their age gap. ;)

  9. Juno says:

    I just wanna know, how does she do it? She looks so young and she doesn’t look botoxed!?! HOW?

    • smartcookie says:

      tons of spray tan and poweder to angle her features and cover the fine lines I would guess. she probably does very regular facials too and works out daily–in and out of the sack :)

  10. Ari says:

    They are starting to grow on me but he needs to tell his family to stop the nonsense if this is true.

  11. Mary jones says:

    If she marrys him I’m sure she wouldnt do so without a prenup. Shes not stupid they won’t stay married long. And when they divorce he will get nothing.

  12. Neelyo says:

    I want to see the wedding pictures because I’m sure they’ll rival My Big Fat Gypsy wedding for sheer tackiness.

  13. Bella says:

    she has lost her mind,and my respect.

  14. nancy xl says:

    i think j-ho is feeling old now that she is 42 with kids. dating a younger guy makes her feel young. she is such a cliche’ and we’ve said it all before. as for him making lots of money before as a dancer…i highly doubt it…not compared to j-ho’s $$$$. marry her and he’ll be set for life, have kids, even better.!!

  15. bluhare says:

    If he’s smart (haha), he’ll just keep riding that gravy train, not ask her to marry him, keep cashing the checks and sock a bunch away. He’ll end up better financially that way.

    And, Jenny-Poo? You’ve got saddlebags that would fit a Clydesdale. Don’t wear leggings.

  16. Agnes says:

    meh. this is as weird to me as older men dating way younger women. but jlo can afford a paid-for piece, so i guess no harm done now, or if they do marry?

  17. CreamSoda says:

    How poor can his aunt be if she if flying to the U.S. from Australia? If she can afford the flight, she can’t be struggling that bad. Greedy people.

  18. Rhea says:

    J.Lo, can you hear me now??? DON’T.DO.IT!!!!!

  19. Itwillrain says:

    I dunno.,,,I’m kinda hoping it works out for them and they prove all the naysayers wrong…
