Illuminating the cover of People magazine, Jennifer Lopez is opening up about beau Casper Smart and ex-husband Marc Anthony in a candid, intimate interview.
When JLo and Marc divorced in 2011, the singer says it felt like “her whole world fell apart” and credits her boyfriend, choreographer and dancer Casper with helping her heal. “I just got out of a big, heavy, devastating thing, and he’s helped me heal,” Jennifer says, adding, “he’s been there for me.”
Now, we’re all aware that the 18-year age difference between the two has sparked a lot of speculation as to why the two are together, but guess what? Jennifer admits that even she questions their relationship sometimes.
“I ask him, ‘Why don’t you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?’ The truth is we don’t know what’s going to happen,” she admits. “We’re loving this moment right now. We make each other happy.”
Even though the two are happy, don’t expect them to walk down the aisle anytime soon: “I’m making decisions for three, I’m mama bear. I want to make sure everything’s right. I have been hasty in the past, super hasty.”
And speaking of her past, the actress spoke out about ex-fiancé, Ben Affleck’s “golden” win at a recent press junket. “I am so happy for him. You know we went through a really rough time in the press, and things like that back in the day. So I really felt like ‘Wow, this is a great moment,’” Jennifer said of watching Ben take home not one, but two Golden Globe Awards, adding, “I gave him a standing ovation. I was VERY happy!”
