J-Lo: Casper helped me after split

Jennifer Lopez says she tries not to worry about the age gap in her relationship

Jennifer Lopez has told how she often urges her toyboy boyfriend to find himself a younger girlfriend.

The star, 43, started seeing choreographer and dancer Casper Smart, 25, following her split with Marc Anthony in 2011, after seven years of marriage and two children together.

She admitted to People magazine that she was aware that the 18-year age gap could become an issue, but that she was living in the moment

"I ask him, 'Why don't you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?' And you think, 'How long is this gonna be?', she told the mag.

"You think, 'OK, in 10 years I'm going to be like this and you're going to be like that' and... men at that age are... I think all different things. The truth is we don't know what's going to happen. We're loving this moment right now. We make each other happy."

J-Lo also revealed that Casper helped her through her divorce.

"I just got out of a big, heavy, devastating thing, and he's helped me heal," she said. "He's been there for me."
