J.Lo’s lover faces jail time

2011-11-25 09:06

Los Angeles – Jennifer Lopez’s toy boy lover could be sent to jail for 90 days.

The singer-and actress began dating dancer Casper Smart a few weeks ago and it has now been revealed the 24-year-old hunk has racked up a number of speeding and traffic-related charges.

According to police records, they include speeding over 160 km/h and illegal drag racing. He was also charged with driving without a valid licence in 2004, 2006 and 2007 while in 2005 he allegedly evaded electronic toll charges. In 2004 and 2005 he also reportedly exceeded speeds of 104 km/h.

Casper posted $26 000 (more than R220 000) in relations to the charges – which are still pending – and in March he pleaded no contest.

He is now scheduled to appear in court on January 5 next year and must complete 10 days of community service before then. If found guilty he could be sent to jail for 90 days and pay a $500 fine.

When he appears in court, it is unclear whether Lopez will be supporting him as she is said to be treating the relationship as a “fun fling” and is enjoying getting to know Casper.

A source has said: “They are dating and having a good time. They’ve been getting more open with their flirting for weeks.

“It’s a fun fling. It’s not meant to turn into anything more.”

Jennifer has three-year-old twins, Max and Emme with estranged husband Marc Anthony.
