Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart publicly announced their break-up last June … but now a report claims that the two faked the whole thing to sell their separate movie projects.
Sources close to the couple tell us … the break-up they announced in June was a business move. Multiple sources say in the spring they did stop seeing each other, but only for a few weeks.
We’re told JLo was hawking her movie, “Boy Next Door,” and honchos on the film felt creating a buzz that she was hooking up with co-star Ryan Guzman would help sell tickets. It’s hard to do that when you’re not single.
But the decision wasn’t one-sided. We’re told Casper was up to the same thing because he was shooting “Street,” a UFC fighter movie where he buffed up. Again, he was more appealing single.
The outlet goes on to document several moments the couple were caught trying to conceal their supposedly continuing romantic relationship after the break-up … and to conclude that the two never broke up in the first place.
Neither Lopez nor Smart has confirmed the reports.
