As fans of American Idol anxiously awaited Wednesday’s season premiere of the FOX reality show, 24-year-old Casper Smart was waxing poetically about his lady love, Jennifer Lopez, on Twitter, addressing all the naysayers questioning the couple’s May-December romance. What did he say?
When Jennifer Lopez stepped out with back-up dancer Casper Smart following her high-profile split from Marc Anthony, fans and haters alike just couldn’t stop buzzing about the age difference between the 42-year-old pop star and actress and her younger beau.
Now, Smart is finally addressing all of the not-so-subtle whispers himself, arguing that “age, status and opinions of others are irrelevant. Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite.”
“Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining,” Smart explained via Twitter on Wednesday (January 18). “We should all honor our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts, Love and be happy!”
Jennifer supported her man’s words, re-tweeting them to her followers.
According to friends of J-Lo, Smart may be young, but he’s exactly what Jenny from the block needed after her marriage to Marc Anthony ended.
“When Jennifer got together with Casper, it changed everything,” a source close to Lopez tells Us Weekly, adding that Smart is a “very sweet, nice guy.”
