Marc Anthony “Ballistic” Over Jennifer Lopez’s New Boyfriend Casper Smart

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez were gracefully handling their divorce until J.Lo got a new man, at which point Marc’s side of the amicable breakup reportedly became not-so-amicable.

Marc was supposed to join Jennifer in South America to film scenes for their Q’Viva! The Chosen talent show, but pulled out at the last minute after hearing 24-year-old Casper was joining J.Lo on the trip. Star reports Casper was headed back to his home base in L.A. when Jennifer changed her mind and asked him to come with her to film for the show. A source explains: “Casper was booked on a commercial jet — in economy, no less — back to Los Angeles, but J.Lo had decided that she wanted him to go with her to Peru for Q'Viva!”

This development caused Marc to pull out of the trip altogether, and he’s now threatening to quit the show entirely. “Marc is extremely jealous, and doesn't think Jen is using good judgement when it comes to Casper.” The salsa singer reportedly called producer Simon Fuller and told him his reason for wanting out of Q’Viva! "Marc told Simon the reason was, quite simply, J.Lo. He said 'I can't work with her!'"

The drama continues to build. Marc got wind of Casper’s drag-racing past and, according to Radar Online, Marc “went ballistic when he found out about Casper's criminal record. He explicitly told Jen that Casper wasn't allowed to drive their children anywhere. Marc hates the fact that Casper is spending time with Max and Emme.”
