Jennifer Lopez is reportedly concerned the “spark is gone” from her romance.
The 44-year-old star has been dating her backing dancer Casper Smart, 26, since October 2011. They haven’t been seen out much lately and haven’t been photographer together either, with Jennifer apparently worrying about whether they have a future together.
“Jennifer is pretty private about the relationship, but she’s been hinting that the spark is gone,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “She’s having a hard time ignoring the fact that her head has been telling her for a while that this thing with Casper isn’t forever. And now her heart’s saying the same thing.”
Jennifer began her relationship with Casper just a few months after she split from her third husband Marc Anthony. She has a reputation for diving into romances and is said to be determined to make the right choices in love going forward.
The star is said to be concerned she and her beau want different things from their lives. It is claimed she has even tried to end it in the past, but then rekindled the love affair as she couldn’t be without Casper.
In June, the star shot a campaign for cell phone company Viva Móvil in New York City and it is alleged she had split from Casper at the time.
“Everyone on set was whispering about the news,” a source claimed. “She seemed down and looked tired, like she hadn’t slept well. She holed up in her trailer for hours when she wasn’t needed for her scenes, and asked for vanilla Häagen-Dazs ice cream and white flowers. It was obvious she was a million miles away.”
Jennifer and Marc have five-year-old twins Max and Emme, who get along well with Casper. One of the reasons she is apparently struggling with what to do is that she doesn’t want to upset the little ones. She has reportedly vowed to stay on good terms with Casper even if they aren’t romantically involved any more.
