Before stepping out publicly as a couple, Smart and Lopez took their chemistry to the stage in October at the Mohegan Sun’s 15th anniversary celebration, where the singer actually broke down in tears. “I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love,” a post-split Lopez told the audience. “A lot has changed since then.”
Despite their 17-year age gap, Lopez kicked up her heels and got in touch with her youthful side while having a swinging good time with Smart in Santa Barbara for Valentine’s Day. “Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant,” Smart Tweeted. “Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite.”
The American Idol judge cast Smart as her dance partner for her steamy music video “Dance Again,” in which Lopez sexily blindfolded her man. A week later, the entertainer bought Smart a truck for his 25th birthday.
Taking charge, Smart led the way for a sparkling Lopez during a March date night out in Beverly Hills. “I’m a bit of a romantic, if you hadn’t noticed,” Lopez said at a press conference for her upcoming film What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
Mwah! and Smart pucker up while enjoying themselves in Mexico in March. “[Jennifer] never half does anything,” the star’s manager Benny Medina said of the romance. “When she commits to anything in her work, her life or her relationships, she is in it.”
