New York-Jennifer Lopez’s relation with Casper Smart is reportedly on the rocks.

According to reports, the pair is headed for a breakup, and even had a mini-split this summer.

“Jennifer is pretty private about the relationship, but she’s been hinting that the spark is gone,” a source said. “She’s having a hard time ignoring the fact that her head has been telling her for a while that this thing with Casper isn’t forever. And now her heart’s saying the same thing.

“They’re obviously in very different places in their lives, and Jennifer wants to take responsibility for her life and not repeat the same mistakes she has made in the past. She enjoyed the relationship for what it is, but now that giddiness has turned to sadness.”

Lopez has tried to end their relationship several times, most recently in June. During a shoot for Viva Movil in NYC on June 14, “Everyone on set was whispering about the news that J.Lo and Casper broke up,” a source said.

“She seemed down and looked tired, like she hadn’t slept well. She holed up in her trailer for hours when she wasn’t needed for her scenes, and asked for vanilla Haagen Dazs ice cream and white flowers. It was obvious she was a million miles away. “Jennifer’s team started scheduling all her major appearances solo. It’s hard for her to think of how to it explain it to the twins. They love Casper. Jennifer’s probably going to at least stay friends with him so hopefully it won’t be as dramatic as it’s been talking to them about her split from their dad [Marc Anthony].”
