Pop star Jennifer Lopez's romance with backing dancer Casper Smart is heating up as the couple have gone vacationing in Hawaii.
The 42-year-old singer-actress is said to have struck up a close relationship with 24-year-old Smart in the weeks following her split from husband Marc Anthony, the father of her twin babies, in July, reported TMZ online.
But the superstar has now been snapped cosying up to Smart for the first time since news of the budding romance broke earlier this month.
Lopez was seen dressed in a skimpy black bikini as she reclines on a luxury beach bed beside Smart, while another shot shows the new couple cuddling.
Lopez has refused to confirm or deny reports about her alleged new beau.
"I told everybody... 'Until I'm in a really serious relationship, because of the babies, I'm not really gonna be commenting on my personal life'," Lopez said.
