Jennifer Lopez 'really hurt' by Casper Smart split

2014-09-03 23:00

Los Angeles - Jennifer Lopez was left "really hurt" over her split from Casper Smart.

The 45-year-old beauty and her toyboy boyfriend, 27, went their separate ways in June following two-and-a-half years of dating and while the On The Floor hitmaker - who has been divorced three times - has had several failed romances, she is hoping to learn from her mistakes and start again.

She said: ''Everybody has seen that I make mistakes, I rush in, I get swept up and I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things, each time it goes wrong, it's hard. I get really hurt but I have to let myself go, what did I do? what can I learn? and as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher, I've got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right.''

The brunette star - who has had failed marriages with Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and more recently Marc Anthony - still believes her Mr. Right is out there somewhere and she won't give up looking for him.

Speaking to ELLE UK magazine, she added "I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he's out there somewhere. But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything."

Despite being in several relationships over the years, Jennifer - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc - recently insisted she doesn't sleep around, preferring to be in a committed relationship.

She added: "I like being in a relationship. I'm not one to like wh**e around and stuff like that - that's not my thing."
