Rumors have been flying for weeks that American Idol judge and all-around superstar Jennifer Lopez is hooking up with actor Bradley Cooper, but now another source is chiming in — to confirm that the two stars are "casually dating."
As TMZ reports, Bradley was photographed yesterday behind the wheel of an SUV alongside a woman who was covering her face, but bore a striking resemblance to Jennifer. A source close to the couple has now confirmed to TMZ that the mystery woman was indeed J.Lo — and that the two are definitely seeing each other.
Jennifer separated from longtime husband Marc Anthony in July, while Bradley has been linked to everyone from Scarlett Johansson to Olivia Wilde following his high-profile split from Renee Zellweger in March. Fellow Idol judge Steven Tyler recently said that Jennifer seemed "as fine as can be" after the separation, mentioning that she's got all kinds of "new ventures... be that her clothing line or the next [Idol] contestant, or a boyfriend or her babies." We'd thought that the "boyfriend" bit was just speculation — but now it appears that there's something more substantial to back up Steven's quote!
Whether things get more serious with Bradley, or Jennifer decides to pursue another guy (perhaps one of the gents we suggested for her?), it looks like the superstar is very much back on the market post-Marc!
