Jennifer Lopez has reportedly been in a hot and heavy relationship with 24-year-old backup dancer Casper Smart, who recently shared the stage with the 42-year-old sexy performer at the AMA's earlier this week.

Smart, who sources say "wants to be rich and famous," has a checkered past including a court date to face reckless drag-racing charges, according to In Touch.

The dancer was pulled over last winter while racing on an LA freeway, and as a result, Smart will face a judge this January. Also back in 2006, Casper was found guilty for driving without a driver's license.

As for his alleged romance with JLo, the source adds, "Hes a smooth talker and he obviously thinks J. Lo will be his meal ticket.

Lopez has two children, 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, with soon-to-be-ex Marc Anthony. The two were married for seven years before deciding to call it quits.
