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

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.

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.

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.

We're told the kids -- Emme and Max -- have been hangin' with J.Lo and Casper during the most recent leg of Jenny's international tour ... and when they arrived back in the States on Monday, daddy was right there to greet them.
Sources tell us ... things seemed very friendly and the kids appeared happy to see their dad.

... But J.Lo Chose Casper

Marc Anthony held out hope for a reconciliation with Jennifer Lopez, but decided to file for divorce when she told him ... she's madly in love with BF Casper Smart ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... Marc filed for divorce Monday -- nine months after the couple announced they were splitting.
But sources extremely close to Marc tell us, he didn't make the decision on his own -- he had a heart-to-heart with J.Lo a few weeks back to see if she really, truly wanted to end the marriage.
We're told he said he wanted to give the marriage another try, but Jennifer confessed ... she was deeply in love with Casper ... and wanted to pursue that relationship.
We're told Marc was blindsided ... he had not idea things were so serious -- and he was hurt.
So that's why Marc filed divorce papers this week.
Rents L.A. Public Beach
Keep Away from My Kids

Jennifer Lopez is drawing a line in the sand -- paying nearly a grand to rent out a public beach in L.A. last weekend ... to keep randoms away from her family and children.
Sources tell TMZ, Jennifer forked over $925 to the city of Long Beach to rent out Marine Beach on Saturday -- 3,400 feet of shoreline -- just for her, her kids, her BF Casper Smart and other family and friends.
To keep out the riffraff, we're told lifeguards marked off the water using buoys -- and kept the beach gates locked.
We're told J.Lo and co. brought their own jet skis for awesome fun times -- and even hired a wakeboard instructor.
Meanwhile, a bunch of sad locals stayed home and played with dirt.

Gets Probation for Drag Racing
1/3/2012 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez might want to think twice about handing Casper Smart the keys to her Bentley ... 'cause her BF just pleaded no contest in a drag racing case.
Casper's high speed bust came back in April 2010 -- long before his J.Lo days -- and today an LA County Superior Court judge hit him with 12 months probation and a $500 fine.
Casper wasn't required to be in court ... his attorney entered the plea. We're guessing speed racer had better people things to do.
