Jennifer Lopez was reportedly in good spirits, when she was pictured leaving a New York City building on 25 August, despite her split from her long-time boyfriend Casper Smart a few days back. The former couple started dating since late 2011 after The Ain't Your Mama singer split from her ex-husband Marc Anthony the same year.

According to E! News, the 47-year-old singer was casually dressed in a blue denim shirt, which she paired with a white t-shirt underneath, jeans and tanned ankle length boots. However, Smart did not look well as he tried to go incognito with a hoodie, which he paired with a baseball cap and sunglasses while keeping his head down as he walk in the Big Apple. The choreographer was later spotted getting into a car after his solo shopping trip.

A source previously told People that the two were no longer dating.

"Jennifer and Casper have split. They have not been together for a few weeks," the source said. "It wasn't anything dramatic and they were on good terms – it just came to a natural end. They will remain friends and they see each other, but they are not together. It was very amiable."

Lopez previously said Smart had a big role in the lives of her 8-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

"My relationship with them – our references are always in reference to the kids. What's best for them, what's good for them, let's talk this way in front of them... Once they're happy, they just add happiness and joy into the home and then everything else kind of goes from there."

When the couple were first rumoured to be dating, Smart said: "She's [Jennifer Lopez] sweet, funny, nice, easygoing and gracious. You can't ask for anything more. She's beautiful."

"We don't really go out very much. We both don't drink, we don't do any drugs, smoking, pills or any of the craziness. We don't get wrapped up in the Hollywood life that can chew you up and spit you out. I've seen it happen a million times," he added.
