J-Lo agrees with young lover's tweet: 'age is irrelevant' 

Thursday January 19, 2012

Jennifer Lopez's new boyfriend has spoken out, seemingly, against those who have made negative comments about the couple's age gap.

The American Idol judge, 42, has been reportedly dating her backing singer Casper Smart, 24, following her split from husband Marc Anthony.

Casper tweeted: "Age, status, and opinions of others are irrelevant. Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite.

"Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining."

The backing dancer added: "We should all honour our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts, love and be happy."

Jennifer - who has three-year-old twins Max and Emme with estranged husband Marc - re-tweeted his comments.

J-Lo and Marc announced their split in the summer but were recently reunited professionally for their new TV show Q'Viva: The Chosen.
