Singer rekindles romance with ex – despite cheating rumours

Jennifer Lopez and former flame Casper Smart are reportedly a couple again, after splitting last year.

The couple, who have an 18-year age gap, began dating in 2011 shortly after Jennifer separated from her husband Marc Anthony. Although Jennifer and Casper were together for almost three years, it's believed things hit a rocky patch in June 2014 after rumours emerged that Casper had cheated.

At the time, The Sun reported that Casper had been "intimate" with two transgender models, something he strongly denied. 

Even after things ended, Casper and J-Lo remained friendly and now it seems the pair are giving their romance another chance, with Entertainment Tonight confirming the two are an official item again. The lovebirds even celebrated New Year's Eve together in Las Vegas, where Jennifer was performing at Caesar's Palace.

Although things may have come to a rocky end in June, Jennifer spoke openly during the relationship about how happy she was with Casper. "It’s a sweet relationship. It's kind, it's healthy… it's supportive," she said in an interview back in 2013.

The reconciliation comes after Jennifer's recent admission that she considers herself "a love addict" and fears being alone – something she has tried hard to work on over the last few months. "When I face myself, I go, 'You have a fear of really being on your own. So you know what? That's what we're gonna do right now.' …But it took me years to get there. So first it was learning to love myself. And then it was about facing my fears," she told Self magazine.
