Casper Smart's post-Jennifer Lopez life may have fewer champagne wishes and caviar dreams ... but dude can still afford a (sorta) fancy new hair style.
Smart went full Asian on Tuesday ... strolling out of Philippe Chow while rocking a mean Samurai-styled topknot.
Casper was pretty talkative too -- giving us his pro-dancer review of J.Lo's recent twerkfest in Miami, but more importantly ... he told us what the hell he was thinking when he got his hair chopped.
Then again ... that cut might be self-inflicted.
I Bank on America

Poor Casper Smart. No really ... poor Casper Smart, who went hat in hand to Bank of America.
As we previously reported ... Jennifer Lopez did NOT give Casper a fabulous parting gift -- such as money -- when the two broke up a few months back.
So the freshly single/cash strapped Casper made the trek to the Calabasas branch, spoke with a banker and then hightailed it out of the parking lot on his chopper.
The good news -- he has experience babysitting, and that can pay quite a lot.
Scoping Out Real Estate
On Lopez Street
6/21/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez's ex boyfriend was photographed looking at property in L.A. Friday, and of course the agent showed him a house on Lopez Street.
It's unclear if Casper is serious about the place, but based on the location -- we're guessing he'll pass.
Dude already did more than 2 years on Lopez. Didn't end well.
Blog Claims His Lawyer's
A Dumb F***
6/19/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casper Smart's lawyer just got the most sarcastic letter we've ever seen in the 9 years of TMZ ... all stemming from Casper's alleged dalliances with transsexuals.
Casper's attorney threatened to sue TheDirty.com after 2 transsexuals posted comments on the website claiming they hooked up with Casper. The lawyer says the comments are defamatory.
But the lawyer for TheDirty -- David Gingras -- fired off a brutal response, telling Casper to pound sand. TheDirty's lawyer says if Casper has a case ... it's against the transsexuals, not the blog.
Here are some of the choice comments in the lawyer's response:
-- "In America, we have this annoying little thing called the 'First Amendment.'"
-- "First, your letter is addressed to 'Hooman Karamian' and yet it begins, 'Dear Mr. Hooman." I have no idea why lawyers think it's impressive to refer (incorrectly) to another person using their first name. I must have missed that class in law school. Do you think this makes you look smarter? Trust me -- not so much."
-- "Now let's get back to first year of law school, shall we? And to make this really easy for you …"
Casper's lawyer made the mistake of telling the lawyer for TheDirty this wasn't his first rodeo. So TheDirty's lawyer fired back, "You're darn tootin' Cowgirl -- this isn't our first time at the rodeo."
And check out the artwork next to the lawyer's John Hancock.
Them's fightin' words, cowgirl.
I Did Not Cheat
on Jennifer Lopez!
6/16/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casper Smart did NOT cheat on Jennifer Lopez with two transsexuals -- and he's prepared to sue the website that claims he did ... so says Casper Smart.
As TMZ first reported, JLo and Smart split up a few months back ... and it had nothing to do with Smart's alleged sexcapades.
But Smart is pissed that TheDirty.com claimed he had flings with two transsexuals he met on Instagram ... so his lawyer has fired off a letter to the site's founder, Nik Richie, denying he's ever met, kissed or had sexual relations with either of the transsexuals in question.
Smart says he didn't send them dirty pics and flat out denies cheating on Jennifer.
Smart has given the site an ultimatum -- either retract the story or get sued.
Smart's lawyer also sent a threatening letter to one of the transsexuals who has been talking to the media ... imploring her to sign a declaration saying they never met Smart.
TMZ reached out to Richie for a response ... and here's the part we can post: "Casper, go get a real job. I heard Instagram is hiring over in their compliance department ... Stop blaming everyone else for your problems."
Busts Crazy Dance Moves
To Pull Hot Maxim Chicks
6/12/2014 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casper Smart went looking for a Jennifer Lopez replacement in a target rich spot -- the Maxim Hot 100 party -- but the choreographer had trouble attracting babes with his moves on the dance floor.
Sources inside the party Tuesday night tell TMZ ... Smart was there with his boys, including Wilmer Valderrama.
We're told things got weird when Smart -- who remember is a dancer by trade -- hit the floor by himself, and busted out some crazy moves?
Some people felt he was trying to steal the spotlight by dancing solo near a giant video screen that was flashing photos of the hot 100 babes.
But the best moment was when #36 ... J.Lo popped up on screen. We're told Casper kept his head down the whole time to avoid seeing her pic.
Walks From JLo
With Sweet Rides, But That's It
6/9/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casper Smart is keeping some fabulous parting gifts in the wake of his breakup with Jennifer Lopez ... but he's not getting any cash ... he's now strictly on his own.
Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... Casper gets to keep 2 motorcycles, a jeep and a Dodge Ram truck.
Pretty sweet so far, but that's where it ends. Casper's days tooling around L.A. in that white Bentley are over. Ditto flying private jets, the fancy Hamptons mansion and the Hidden Hills estate.
The toughest change for Casper -- he won't be sitting front row during Paris Fashion Week with Kanye.
And there's this. Our sources say Jennifer won't be doling out any money for Casper to land on his feet, but we're told that's the way he wants it. As it was put to us, "He's too much of a man" and hasn't asked for anything.
Well, Melanie Griffith is gonna be single soon ...
Offered Big Movie Role
But There's a Catch
6/7/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casper Smart lost his job as Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend/dancer/babysitter -- but now he's getting a shot to make hundreds of thousands of bucks by starring in porn.
Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch sent a letter to Casper ... asking him to play the lead love interest in an XXX film featuring the transsexual with whom he was rumored to have an online fling.
Hirsch says Sofie Vissa is locked and loaded for a film called, "Sofie on the DownLo" ... and Hirsch wants Casper to get it on with Vissa in the company's first-ever transsexual sex tape.
We're told Casper is being offered around $200,000 -- with big back end potential and the possibility of a sequel, "Casper, the Friendly Host."
Casper has not acknowledged any sort of relationship with Sofie.
Casper's Free to Go ...
On a T&A Safari
6/6/2014 6:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart's break-up has nothing to do with any new relationships he may or may not have ... according to people close to them.
So hypothetically speaking, if a couple of attractive transsexual women are into Casper -- J.Lo hypothetically doesn't care ... cause she's been done-zo for a while.
But It has Nothing to Do with Transsexual Texts
6/6/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have called it quits after nearly 2 1/2 years ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the former couple tell us ... they actually split nearly 2 months ago, but kept it on the down low. We're told the breakup was civil. They're still friendly but simply grew apart.
We're told the breakup had nothing to do with recent stories of Casper's sexual escapades. One source put it this way: "Casper has been a single guy and can text or see whoever he wants, but the idea that he was knowingly texting a transsexual is laughable." The source added, "He's not that guy, but like a lot of single guys online he obviously likes to look at a 'lil T and A."
Casper is in the process of moving out right now. We're told there was no rush because JLo's been on the road promoting her 10th album, AKA.
We're told Casper will be pursuing acting, which is why he took show directing and choreography off his Instagram.
Smart is Dumb
Reveals 'A.I.' Return
8/17/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez must sure think Casper Smart is cute, because upstairs there's a vacancy -- he just ruined her big announcement that she's returning to "American Idol."
Smart was promoting his new show -- yes, anyone can -- when he was asked if his GF was coming back to the struggling show. He dug deep and said, "Yes."
Apparently Casper thought the cat was already out of the bag.
So JLo will join Keith Urban. No word on other potential saviors.
I'm a Bigger Rain Diva
Than Jennifer Lopez

Casper Smart is like a gremlin ... whatever you do, DON'T GET HIM WET!
With the rain coming down pretty hard in NYC on Wednesday, J.Lo's boy toy was safely sheltered from the elements with TWICE the amount of umbrella assistants as Jennifer.
Being the luckiest backup dancer in the world has its perks ... for now.

In the $$$ Dept.

Marc Anthony and his kids hit up Disneyland with his new girlfriend who is both hot and billionaire-adjacent.
The new GF is Chloe Green, daughter of UK billionaire Sir Philip Green, whose estimated net worth is $5 billion.
It's a good bet Sir Philip provides his daughter with an endless supply of loot. He reportedly dropped $6 million on his son's Bar Mitzvah -- a lot more impressive than a bunch of useless savings bonds.
In related news ... Casper Smart just got a big raise in his allowance.
