JLo Claims She Doesn’t Date Younger Men: It’s About The Person, Not The Age
What do Drake and Casper Smart both have in common? Jennifer Lopez!
These two Hollywood hotties have all been romantically linked to Jenny From the Block — both of whom are also much younger than the pop star. Lopez has carried around the title of being a cougar for years, but according to the singer, she doesn’t date younger men for the sake of dating younger men.
During JLo’s appearance on The Ellen Show on Monday, the mother-of-two explained that “I don’t date younger men. It’s not like you have to be younger. It’s not about that.”
She continued, “I just meet people and if I go out with them, I go out with them. If I like them, I like them. If I don’t, I don’t.”
Lopez added, “It’s about the person. It’s about who they are. It has nothing to do with age.”
The singer went on to explain that “Beau” aka Casper was the “first guy I ever dated who was younger than me and I got labeled right away.” She did, however, admit that age doesn’t matter. “It’s whether or not I’m attracted to them. Their energy, their soul.”
The irony of Lopez’s younger man confession is that she later suggested during a game of “Who’d You Rather,” she’d go for Harry Styles over Zac Effron, Nick Jonas, The Weeknd, Brad Pitt, Prince Harry and Chris Martin. Harry, btw, is 23.
