Been wondering what Jennifer Lopez’s secret is to looking impeccable so soon after a breakup? Well, it helps the split happened months ago.

News that the American Idol judge is back on the market just reached our ears a couple of weeks ago but Jenny says she and beau Casper Smart actually parted ways long before the headlines. “I’m single right now. I have been for a couple of months,” she told Wendy Williams while stopping by her TV show to promote new album A.K.A.

We’d heard as much in the initial reports of Jennifer and Casper’s split with insiders telling TMZ the two actually said their goodbyes in April. “They were hoping to be more low-key about things,” a source added to E! News. “He was slowly going to move out and that would be it.”

Jenny didn’t divulge where that moving out process currently stands, instead turning the talk to what she looks for in a guy. “I don’t look at the outside so much,” she told Wendy who, we must say, has quite the knack for getting typically private celebs to open up. “I’m not an outside-cover person. I am more of, like, an essence person.”

That’s true for herself too. “I’m a big soul searcher,” Jennifer explains, “and I read a lot of self-help books. I am always kinda searching for answers.”

Us too, Jenny. Case in point: How are you still single?!
