A few months ago, we reported that Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart were spotted together on New Years Eve, making rumors swirl that the couple was back together!
Now, it appears they are not only back together after they were caught kissing in public while at an American Idol taping this week, but the duo were never really apart to begin with! Sources say that the breakup they announced back in June was nothing but a business move!
It makes sense — execs on J.Lo's movie Boy Next Door thought creating some buzz that the 45-year-old star was hooking up with her co-star Ryan Guzman would help sell more tickets at the box office.

Smart benefited from the public break too. The 27-year-old dancer was bulking up for his UFC fighter movie Street, and his single status would give him some buzz for the movie as well.
But reportedly, the real story is that they only stopped seeing each other for a few weeks.
Two months into the breakup, the two were spotted in a BMW — but J.Lo ducked in the car out of sight when she saw the paparazzi! Then last month, the singer picked the dancer up from a GQ event, and they hightailed it into a restaurant so they wouldn't be seen.
Even though Jenny reassured press that she was single back in January, we think the evidence might say otherwise!
Do YOU think the couple's split was for professional reasons?
