Jennifer Lopez hasn't given up on marriage. The Latina bombshell - who began dating choreographer Casper Smart in October 2011 shortly after her third marriage fell apart - is hopeful for a fairytale ending and will "probably" walk down the aisle with her beau in the future.
Probed as to whether she wanted to marry again, she giggled, "I don't know ... probably, maybe! I like [being married], I like the idea of it, I always have. As a girl you never really give up on that fairytale completely."
Jennifer - who has five-year-old twins Max and Emme with her third husband Marc Anthony - is so smitten with Casper, 25, that the 43-year-old singer doesn't care about their age gap and chooses to ignore the stigma about older women dating younger men: "There's more of a stigma to it, you know? But I'm not really one to follow rules or stay within a box."
The star also revealed back-up dancer Casper - who has choreographed the video for her new single "Live It Up" - is the perfect partner because the pair share a creative connection which fuels both their careers. "It's a sweet relationship. It's kind, it's healthy. He's a creative partner to me. He knows what I want to accomplish. We talk about it a lot, obviously we're together a lot. He helps me and I help him, and it kind of works that way," she explained.
Jennifer Lopez is in no rush to marry Casper Smart.
Although the 43-year-old singer is deeply in love with her 25-year-old backing dancer, she says she is taking their relationship one day at a time. Speaking on CBS This Morning she said, "[Usually I'm like] Where is it going? Are we getting married? But now I'm like, maybe it's OK to just be in the moment. Maybe it's OK to enjoy this for right now. Who knows where it's going? There's love here. Relax."
Jennifer started dating Casper after her split from third husband Marc Anthony and the Parker actress admitted it has been difficult explaining the marriage breakdown to their four-year-old twins Max and Emme: "It wasn't until recently they started going, 'Where's Daddy?' And I'm like, 'I'm going to explain it to you when you're bigger because you're not going to understand it right now.' And they'll take that. And I said, 'But here's what I do know. Mommy and Max and Emme are always going to be there. Mommy's always going to be there. Mommy's not going anywhere.' And that comforts them a little."
Jennifer Lopez is suing her former driver for extortion.
The former American Idol panelist is claiming he demanded $2.8 million or else he would tell the media and authorities about secrets he overheard while driving her around for jobs.
Jennifer's case is a countersuit to a claim filed by Hakob Manoukian, who claimed he was forced to resign after being publicly berated by her manager, Benny Medina. In her countersuit, obtained by website TMZ.com, Jennifer alleges Hakob became drunk with power and wanted to control her entire security team and get more money for doing it. When he was turned down, Jennifer claimed he retaliated by threatening to spill confidential information that would be highly embarrassing. Jennifer says the driver threatened that if he wasn't paid $2.8 million, he would take his information to authorities and have her criminally prosecuted. She is suing for damages in excess of $20 million.
Jennifer Lopez struggled to bond with her children when they were born.
The 42-year-old What To Expect When You're Expecting star realized less than two weeks into becoming a mother that she wasn't naturally connecting to her twins Max and Emmie.
"I remember after the babies were born, about seven to 10 days in, I was like, 'What is going on with me?' I felt sad and depressed and thought the babies didn't love me," she said.
The "On The Floor" singer who is now dating dancer Casper Smart explained that the novel which her latest film is based on helped her get through the rough patch: "I actually remember picking up the book to try to see what was happening to me. And it said how you have this huge hormonal drop about seven to 10 days after you give birth. It's called the 'baby blues.' But I just thought they didn't like me!"
Jennifer Lopez wants to marry her boyfriend Casper Smart. The 42-year-old singer is thought to be ready for a fourth trip down the aisle after announcing she was parting ways with Marc Anthony last July.
"She's telling friends she wants to marry Casper. She's certain she wants to be with Casper forever," a source said.
At a press conference on Monday to announce her upcoming world tour with Enrique Iglesias and Wisin Y Yandel, Jennifer announced her partner of six months will play a vital part in putting the show together: "I'm working with [choreographer] Jamie King, and also Casper Smart. It's going to be an amazing, amazing show." She added that the event will be "one of the most historic tours ever."
"There's never been something like this, where Latinos come together like this. It's international - English and Spanish. I just think it's very groundbreaking. I was honored to be asked to be a part of it," she added.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will not have a custody battle over their twins.
The couple split last July after seven years of marriage, but they are keen to make the divorce as amicable as possible for the sake of four-year-old twins Max and Emme, as their welfare and happiness is the most important thing to them.
"The parties are working together to reach a friendly resolution that's in the best interest of their children," Jennifer's lawyer Ron Anteau told People.
Sources also say Marc doesn't want any financial support from Jennifer, who is now dating dancer Casper Smart. "He's not seeking financial support from her in this divorce. This is about trying to figure out how best for two very busy parents to share their children," one insider said.
Earlier this month, Marc filed for divorce from Jennifer, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.

Diddy has always been very nice to me. Justin Timberlake is the same way, he’s really funny. And, Sheryl Crow is really down to earth and really cool. And like, J. Lo would be a really good dancer!"

Is Jennifer Lopez heading toward her third divorce?
According to a new report, the 4 1/2 year marriage between Lopez and Marc Anthony could be coming to a close. This news comes after weeks of speculation about their relationship.
Rumors about possible trouble kicked into high gear after Jennifer’s appearance at The Curious Case of Benjamin Button premiere. Not only was Marc not there - the ringless singer was in Las Vegas doing a little partying of his own - neither was her wedding ring. (This may explain why she looked particularly hot that night. Hoping to make somebody jealous?)
