The Word: Jennifer Lopez is paying Casper Smart $10,000 a week

It pays to be Jennifer Lopez’s boy toy.

Star magazine reports that Lopez is paying her former back-up dancer Casper Smart $10,000 a week so he can pretend like he has the funds to date her high-profile self. It’s like crazy Britney Spears/K-Fed all over again! A source tells the mag, “She hated having to whip out her credit card every time they go to dinner. Jen figured it’s easier to give Casper a weekly stipend, and she thought $10,000 was a nice,
round number. Jen doesn’t want to go over the top, showering Casper with too much, but she also wants him to up his game. Jen is hoping Casper won’t think twice about buying presents for her kids or whisking her off for a surprise weekend getaway.” Ha. No. $40,000 a month as payment to be your boyfriend isn’t “over the top” at all, Jen! That’s totally normal and sane behavior!

No wonder she’s shilling so hard for Fiat — she has a boyfriend to support.

Minka Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal?

Minka Kelly is back together with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, New York Yankees star Derek Jeter. But when they were last off she didn’t exactly have a shortage of other options. Sources tells Us Weekly that Kelly shot down a come-on from Jake Gyllenhaal last fall while she was temporarily single. But that’s not to say that Gyllenhaal isn’t up to her standards. Kelly was just “trying to patch things up” with Jeter quietly at the time.  Yeah, right. Like any single woman would turn down a proposition from Jake Gyllenhaal; this was just leaked by her to make Jeter jealous. I call shenanigans!
