The gay rumors surrounding Casper Smart began swirling from the moment singer/actress Jennifer Lopez took her relationship with her former back-up dancer public.
According to the scuttlebutt, Casper has a predilection for male dancers and well-put-together trannies. The NY media outed Casper in 2012 when he was caught exiting a NY brothel known for its transgender sex workers.
And most recently, Casper was caught sending direct online messages to transgender bikini model Sofie Vissa. He quickly unfollowed Sofie on social media when the blogs caught wind of his most recent transgressions.
“I don’t put nothing past the kid. He’s an opportunist. It’s all gonna come out eventually,” Casper’s former dance pal Joshua Lee Ayers told Radar Online.
“He should know better, he definitely should know better. If a woman looks overdeveloped in more ways than one, you gotta watch out for that sketchy sh*t.”
In 2012 Ayers accused Smart, 27, of being gay claiming he was only with Lopez, 44, for her money and the fame.
Ayers said Casper is known in the industry for stealing other dancers’ routines to help Lopez.
“He’s a little opportunist b*tch boy and he’ll do anything to help [Lopez’s] career,” Ayers told Radar.
“He’ll scout other people’s talent and craft and work, then bring it to her and they’ll do a piece or a video with it. That’s what he’s always done.”
Ayers claims Casper flirted with male dance choreographers for a chance to appear in music videos.
“Half of his resume, he worked for gay choreographers and dancers. He flirts with them to book work and add it to his resume. It’s really just him going that extra mile to be in the limelight,” he said.
“He’s gay for opportunity, gay for the spotlight, whatever gets him in front of the camera. He’ll do it.”
There are indications that the rumors are taking their toll on J-Lo.
“Casper came to dance rehearsal Tuesday and met with J.Lo’s publicist and manager, Benny Medina,” to discuss the rumors, an insider told Radar. “He denied everything.”
It’s interesting to note that Medina himself is gay.
