Washington, Mar 15: Jennifer Lopez' manager Benny Medina has claimed that she fell for toy boy Casper Smart because she was 'fertile ground'.
The 42-year-old singer, who has had relationships with Ben Affleck and P. Diddy, started dating the backing dancer after her seven-year marriage to Marc Anthony ended in July 2011.
Medina also claimed that Casper, 24 was such an appealing prospect because he could give her what she needed.
"She's not oblivious to her own reality right now, as in, 'Damn, I'm 42 with a 24-year-old. Why?" Contactmusic quoted him as telling Vogue magazine.
"We talked about it yesterday. She was just like, 'It's not even the age, Benny'.
"It's actually that I just came out of a relationship where I felt like I was kind of not getting what I needed. And I'm open!
"So somebody who steps in right now and is actually touching me in a way - it's very fertile ground!'," he added. (ANI)
