Los Angeles - Jennifer Lopez allegedly faked her split from Casper Smart last year.

The Booty hitmaker, who announced she and the 27-year-old choreographer had ended their relationship in June after three years of dating, was photographed kissing him in West Hollywood, Los Angeles on Wednesday, sparking rumours they orchestrated their break-up to create hype ahead of the release of her last movie, The Boy Next Door.

The on-again, off-again couple were spotted locking lips while Jennifer was on a break from filming American Idol.

A source close to the 45-year-old singer, who has seven-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, told gossip website that she only stopped seeing Casper for a couple of weeks last summer in a bid to ignite rumours she was dating her co-star Ryan Guzman, 27.

The insider claims Casper believed he would also benefit from appearing to be single ahead of the release of his UFC fighter film Street.

The duo have frequently been spotted together since they announced their split, but Casper recently insisted they were just "good friends".

He said: "We got a lot of ties. We're very close. We're friends. We're very good friends."
