Jennifer Lopez has the Hollywood establishment and fans buzzing over the recent explosive allegations made by the entertainment publication 'TMZ' that she never broke up with her boyfriend Casper Smart as she previously started around the time of the release of her film 'The Boy Next Door' (Daily Mail - March 27).
Some entertainment observers are wondering if the allegations are accurate because if so it could severely undermine and potentially destroy her credibility with her fans and lead to a backlash from fans who might decide not to attend her movies or to stop watching her on the hit reality television show 'American Idol'.
Suspicion about whether the couple ever truly broke up has reached very high levels of doubt when she was recently photographed kissing Casper Smart on the West Hollywood set of American Idol looking very much like they were a couple.
The issue for some entertainment insiders and filmmakers is whether entertainment fans will feel betrayed about her alleged use of the public relations act to draw attention to her new film while garnering support as a divorced Mom who was betrayed by her younger lover, a man alleged to have been exchanging messages and photos with two transsexuals.
Various entertainment observers are amazed at the possibility that she would embark on this path of a fake breakup but her silence at the moment is speaking very loudly for some insiders and providing fuel for thought about if this will impact her 'connection' with fans.
It looks like Jennifer Lopez might have some 'explaining' to do to her fans on the talk show circuit in the very near future if she does not want to be the recipient of a fan backlash that could impact her current and future projects.
