Is Jennifer Lopez And Casper Smart's Age Gap A Problem?

The utterly bizarre relationship between dancer Casper Smart and pop star and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez still hasn’t been mentioned by either party publicly, but that hasn’t stopped the twenty-four year old from lashing out against the haters. Calling “age”, “status” and “the opinions of others” irrelevant, Smart sent his eighteen thousand followers three consecutive philosophical tweets affirming his commitment and defending the validity of the relationship. Though not mentioned by name, Lopez later verified she was the woman in question after she retweeted his words.

Here’s a look at Smart’s tweets with the “To Be Continueds” removed…

Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant. Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite. Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining. We should all honor our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts; Love and be happy!

I applaud the dancer for defending himself and for trying to hang on to the woman he loves. Passion and dreams are an important element to nurturing a lasting relationship, but I’m not sure he should be surprised by the public’s skepticism. After all, this relationship started immediately after her marriage ended, and while Smart might assert that ages are just “reminders of the hours logged on this earth”, they’re also reminders of differences in stages of life. J Lo is a mother, in her forties. He was, up until recently, a single guy who reportedly enjoyed clubbing. That being said, I do appreciate the fact that he sounds like a well-spoken and engaging dude in these tweets. For his sake, I hope things work out.
