Casper Smart, the professional dancer who is currently dating singer Jennifer Lopez despite a 17-year age difference, has denied that he is a homosexual following explosive claims recently made by a fellow dancer, Joshua Lee Ayers.
Ayers, who reportedly works at Hollywood nightclub Boulevard3, posted a strange photo of Smart on Twitter where the 25-year-old is seen dressed in flamboyant clothing, including tiny gold shorts. Smart appeared to be surrounded by at least three other men who are dressed in their underwear, according to Radar Online.
"Check out Ur boy… And his low key homo ways," Ayers wrote alongside the bizarre photo, suggesting that Smart is a closeted homosexual.
Mark Young, 42, represents both Smart and Lopez, and immediately shot down the allegations.
"Casper is not gay. These comments are born from envy and jealousy. It must be a slow news day," Young told Radar.
Ayers reportedly claimed that Smart, who has been dating Lopez for seven months, is simply using the mother of two for her fame and money.
On May 24, he posted another photo of Smart where the dancer is seen posing in a very feminine way. Smart is seen dressed in his usual urban wear but is sucking in his cheekbones and seductively staring at the camera.
"I know what I know, Not love, a lot of business and public relations," Ayers wrote in the photo caption.
Lopez began dating Smart shortly after separating from her estranged husband, Marc Anthony, in July 2011 and the couple are said to be getting serious.
"Jennifer and Casper spend all their spare time together – and he is crazy about [her] twins," an insider told Star magazine. "He's a great substitute dad, and the twins love to play with him. They're already like a family."
