Jennifer Lopez’s relationship with Alex Rodriguez has her ex-boyfriend, Casper Smart’s seal of approval. The 30-year-old admitted to TMZ Sports that he is not jealous of the Shades of Blue star’s new beau. “It’s all respect and love,” Casper said. “I’ve heard he’s an incredibly nice guy.” While the dancer hasn’t met Alex, he praised the former Yankees star calling him an “incredible player” and a “legend.”

Casper, who previously worked as Jennifer’s backup dancer, dated the Ain't Your Mama singer on-and-off from 2011 until 2016. The mom-of-two has since moved on to dating A-Rod. HOLA! USA confirmed earlier this year that the pair are an item. Since news of their coupling broke, the actress and the 41-year-old have traveled to Miami, the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic together. Jennifer and Alex made their red carpet debut as a couple on May 1 at the annual Met Gala in New York City.

Back in March, the retired baseball player opened up about his ladylove saying, “It's obvious. We've been having a great time," adding, “She's an amazing, amazing girl. One of the smartest human beings I've ever met and also an incredible mother." Meanwhile Jennifer, 47, has admitted that her boyfriend is supportive of her. “Every time I finish something, I bring it home and I want him to hear it,” she told Entertainment Tonight in April. "He's so supportive. He's such a supportive person and he's so lovely."
