Lopez Threatens Legal Action Over Reports About BF
August 01, 2012
Jennifer Lopez is striking back against recent tabloid reports about her boyfriend Casper Smart, threatening legal action over two separate publications' cover stories.
Attorneys for Lopez and Smart issued the following statement Wednesday to ET: "These statements are false, malicious and defamatory. Ms. Lopez and Mr. Smart will pursue all remedies available to them under the law."
A Star Magazine story shows photos of Casper purportedly entering and exiting what the publication calls a "gay XXX peepshow" in New York City. The tabloid adds that the visit to the establishment came the day before Lopez's birthday on July 24.
An article in In Touch magazine alleges that Smart also visited an "exotic massage parlor" in the same building as the establishment mentioned in the Star story. The In Touch story says Smart denied, via his rep, that he visited the massage parlor. In a statement to ET, In Touch said, "we stand by our story."
