Looks like Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart just couldn't overcome their recent "rough patch." The couple of nearly three years has reportedly parted ways, a move that supposedly came several weeks ago. In other words, it predated recent reports that Smart had been exchanging messages with two transgender models."It has actually been an amicable process that started a few months ago," a source tells Us.

Despite breakup predictions, they weathered the storm."I'm one of those people who does not like to be alone," Lopez said in January. "I have no shame saying that at this point in my life.
