Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart's split actually due to Marc Anthony?!

News that Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend of two and a half years, Casper Smart, officially split only broke yesterday, but not many were surprised by the confirmation. Rumors that their relationship was on the rocks have been flying for months now, particularly in the last several weeks, when reports claimed that Smart was exchanging racy texts with transsexual model, Sofie Vissa.

But though neither Lopez nor Smart has commented on the split, more details of their breakup now seem to be coming to light. Sources are now telling E! Online that the breakup actually had nothing to do with Vissa, but that there was a third party involved- and that it was none other than Lopez's ex-husband, Marc Anthony!

According to E!, Lopez turned to her ex and father of her two children, Emme and Max, for help regarding her tumultuous relationship with Smart. ""One person she got advice from is her ex Marc," a source reportedly told the publication. "He's been supportive and great through this all."  

The report goes on to claim that the split was a "long time coming" but that the two are still friends and planning on keep things civil, particularly for her kids, who have grown really close to Smart.  Lopez is keeping busy promoting her upcoming album, while Smart is reportedly focusing on launching his acting career—which actually may come sooner than you think. TMZ claims that he was recently approached for a big movie role….in porn! Yikes!

Whatever they decide to do next, (although let's hope it's not porn), I'm glad that they're being adults about the breakup and keeping things amicable, especially since it seems that Smart really became part of Lopez's family during their time together.
