Jennifer Lopez’s representative has denied the star’s dancer boyfriend Casper Smart is gay after rumors spread this week.

Entertainment website RadarOnline posted an ‘exclusive’ story about the celebrity couple, saying one of Lopez’s dancers had outed Smart.

Joshua Lee Ayers, a dancer at a Hollywood nightclub, was blasting Smart on his Twitter account.

On a picture of Smart dressed in nothing but gold glittery shorts, a deer hunter hat and a scarf at a party, Ayers tweeted: ‘Check out Ur boy… And his low key homo ways.’

On 24 May he posted another picture of Smart, saying: ‘I know what I know, Not love, a lot of business and public relations.’

Mark Young, who represents the American Idol judge and dancer, said: ‘Casper is not gay. These comments are born from envy and jealousy.’

Smart and Ayers worked together during the dance film Step Up 3D.

According to EntertainmentWise, another dancer accused Smart of manipulative intentions, saying: ‘He’s willing to do whatever Jennifer wants as long as it furthers his own career.’

The site also alleges he slept with the woman who got him the job of being Lopez’s backing dancer, and dumped her as soon as he met the singer.

Lopez divorced her third husband Mark Anthony in April 2012.
