Jennifer Lopez called time on her relationship with former backup dancer Casper Smart after rumors surfaced that he was hooking up with a transexual model during their time together. Smart denied the reports of a hookup between the two and threatened to sue, but she decided to break things off anyway. Now, it appears that even despite reports that Lopez had moved on to former “Dancing With The Stars” professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, she is still really hurt by her split from Smart.
She revealed, “Everybody has seen that I make mistakes. I rush in, I get swept up and I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things. Each time it goes wrong, it’s hard. I get really hurt but I have to let myself go, ‘What did I do? What can I learn?’ And as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher. I’ve got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right.”
The singer said that she is still holding out hope for Mr. Right. She said to “Elle UK” magazine, “I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he’s out there somewhere. But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything.”
She added, “I like being in a relationship. I’m not one to like whore around and stuff like that – that’s not my thing.”
