Casper who? Jennifer Lopez looked sexier than ever as she made her first appearance post-split from choreographer Casper Smart at a digital influencers lunch for her upcoming eighth studio album, A.K.A., on Saturday, June 7. The event was sponsored by Beats by Dr. Dre and hosted by Karen Civil.
"The countdown is on!!! 10 days until #JLoAKA album release," the 44-year-old wrote via Twitter. Alongside the caption, the "I Luh Ya Papi" singer struck a fierce pose as she wore an Emanuel Ungaro black-and-gold mini dress. She kept her chestnut locks swept back and kept her sunglasses on despite being indoors.
"Jennifer was in a great mood and really happy with the reception to the new music! People loved it," an onlooker told Us. "She was really happy. She has been so focused on launching this album and feeling really great."
Us confirmed Friday that Lopez and the aspiring actor, 27, split after two-and-a-half years of dating. "It has actually been an amicable process that started a few months ago," an insider told Us. "It wasn't an easy decision, but they decided to stay friends...Their relationship couldn't work with the distance. He started trying to establish his own life and career, and she is so focused on hers, and they just couldn't be all about each other anymore."
Smart, meanwhile, was most recently photographed leaving the American Idol judge's L.A. home on the same day that the pair's breakup was revealed. "Casper still really loves Jen a lot, and she loves him," a source told Us. "They are still close."
