Jennifer Lopez & Casper

Legal Threats Over

'Gay Sex Club' Reports

Exclusive Details

0801_jennifer_lopez_casper_smart_sue_star_article_2Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are FURIOUS over reports Casper was "caught" in a "gay sex club" and an exotic massage parlor ... and now they're threatening to sue ... claiming the stories are pure BS.

TMZ has learned ... the couple's high-powered attorneys, Shawn Holley and Howard Weitzman, have teamed up and fired off letters to Star Magazine and In Touch ... warning them the "reports" are "false, malicious and defamatory" and will cause "immense damage" to the couple's careers and reputations.

The reports include photographs of Casper outside a XXX peep show in NYC back in July -- Star claims the shop is a "well-known cruising spot for gay men looking for instant hookups."

In Touch claims Casper was "caught" with an "exotic masseuse."

In their letters, the lawyers have each demanded the mags print a full retraction ... warning Smart and Lopez will "immediately file a lawsuit" if the magazines fail to do so.

We reached out to Star and In Touch -- so far, no word back.

This is too funny.. J-LO has poor taste in men. When she dates the superstars, they either cheat on her, take her to night club shoot outs, or dump her and won't marry her. Then she dates people who are not her equal. Marc Antony, Cris Judd, a nobody, and NOW this gay nobody.. She needs a break, be a mom.. Hang with your kids and do movies until mr. right comes along.. If ever!!

A masseuse is a woman so I don't know why she would be working in a gay men's place.

and why sue? What's the slur?

Is this like when Star Jones laughed when people suggested her husband to be was gay? Star went on and on about how she was not stupid. Is Jennifer Lopez the new Star Jones?

So just because someone was photograph outside a business on a public sidewalk means they are doing business with them? Where is the proof of what he did INSIDE! Some of this magazines stories are to be put in their places a lot of misleading goes on. Even TMZ gets their stories WRONG from time to time

I am sure Star magazine has evidence to back up their story, they can't be dumb enough to open themselve up to a lawsuit by publishing a story that is false. Go ahead and sue we need a change of fodder on this site. :-)

isn't it weird that these so called liberal entertainers consider being gay to be bad/detrimental. Considering all of JeLo's gay fans, I love that having her bf be called gay is like calling him a murderer. Hypocrites all of them.
