Morning Quickies: Jennifer Lopez’s Boyfriend Gets A $10,000-A-Week Allowance

  • Star Magazine claims Casper Smart, backup dancer boy toy of Jennifer Lopez, is paid a $10,000-a-week allowance. The mag claims J.Lo didn’t like having to pay every time they went out to dinner and wants a guy who’ll buy presents for her kids, so she figured she’d give him cash to make it happen. “She can take care of herself just fine, but she’s old-fashioned when it comes to wanting the man to take charge,” the source says. Hey, if it works for them, good! No one bats an eye when a male celeb pays for the lifestyle of his girlfriend(s). Why should it be any different for J.Lo and Casper? [Celebitchy]
