*TMZ is reporting that Jennifer Lopez and her boy-toy Casper Smart have called it quits after nearly 2 ½ years – and that the breakup actually happened two months ago but was kept secret.

Also, sources connected with the former couple tell the website their decision had nothing to do with recent stories of Casper texting a known transsexual. One source put it this way: “Casper has been a single guy and can text or see whoever he wants, but the idea that he was knowingly texting a transsexual is laughable.” The source added, “He’s not that guy, but like a lot of single guys online he obviously likes to look at a ‘lil T and A.”

According to TMZ, the Casper and J.Lo are still friendly, but simply grew apart. He’s currently in the process of moving out, but there’s no rush because Lopez has been on the road promoting her 10th album, “AKA.”

Casper will reportedly pursue acting, which is why he took show directing and choreography off his Instagram, TMZ reports.
