The drama from last week seems to be following Jennifer Lopez into this one as well. First, there were reports that her much younger boy toy, Casper Smart, was caught sexting with not one but two transsexual models. Then, Jen went home to the Bronx to give a concert that was deemed a flop. The venue was only half full and the talk really focused more on her relationship drama than it did on her, um, singing abilities. By week’s end, we learned that Jen and Casper were indeed dunzo.
According to TMZ, Casper was given his walking papers, 2 motorcycles, a jeep, and a truck — but nothing else. After years of rolling in style, he is left with empty pockets and no clue of what to do next. The public humiliation has weighed heavily on Jen, so much so that she has pulled out of the Opening Ceremonies of The World Cup in Brazil just 4 days before she was scheduled to perform with Pitbull and Brazilian star Claudia Leitte. “We Are One” was recorded by the trio especially for this event and so pulling out at the last minute is totally frowned upon.
Apparently, Jen can’t even begin to handle giving another performance that might get ripped apart by critics. The emotional upheaval and gut level disappointment of the last several days is making it impossible for her to even risk another moment in the public eye right now. Jen had expected to be warmly received by her hometown fans in The Bronx and instead was met with tons of criticism. Pulling out of the World Cup will also lead to more backlash. Do you think that Jen is in meltdown mode? Leave us your thoughts in the comments section below!
