Jennifer Lopez may be dating again, but her fellow American Idol judge Steven Tyler does not agree with it.
Lopez, 42, is reportedly dating actor Bradley Cooper, 37, according to recent speculation. Cooper, who has appeared in numerous big screen comedies such as “Wedding Crashers” and “Hangover” was photographed driving with Lopez in the passenger seat of his car on Saturday.
A TMZ source claimed that the two are romantically involved.
"They are definitely dating," the source told TMZ.
This is the second time the two have been photographed together, the first being a New York City encounter in September. Although Lopez’ representatives said the two initially met for a business meeting, sources told People magazine a different story.
“After their date in New York, Bradley and Jennifer stayed in touch," a source told People magazine. "She does like his attention, and it makes her feel good that he seems so into her. She has a fun time with Bradley and he makes her laugh."
Lopez announced that she signed divorce papers to split from Marc Anthony, her husband of seven years. Tyler, Lopez’s “American Idol” co-host, said it may be too early for her to be dating.
Tyler, 63, spoke with Us Weekly Friday about Anthony still being a part of her.
“She's exuding this energy and this pulse from her heart”, Tyler said. “She's got this thing about her, you know, she still has Marc. They've just been married too long.”
The Aerosmith lead singer said Lopez shared in his youthful mentality at times and was known for taking risks in her life.
“[She's] jumping into new ventures, be that her clothing line or the next [Idol] contestant, or a boyfriend or her babies”, Tyler told Us Weekly. “Behind all that, she's really a little baby girl.”
