Los Angeles - Marc Anthony has reportedly banned his estranged wife Jennifer Lopez's new boyfriend from driving when their children are in the car.
The 43-year-old singer was not happy when he discovered Jennifer's new lover Casper Smart has been arrested in the past for drag racing and speeding and has told her the dancer is not allowed behind the wheel if his kids, three-year-old Max and Emme, are also in the vehicle.
A source told RadarOnline.com: "Marc went ballistic when he found out about Casper's criminal record. He explicitly told Jen that Casper wasn't allowed to drive their children anywhere. Marc hates the fact that Casper is spending time with Max and Emme. Marc is extremely jealous, and doesn't think Jen is using good judgement when it comes to Casper."
Jennifer, 42, has been dating the 24-year-old hunk for several weeks and recently spent Thanksgiving with him and the twins.
Marc - who separated from the singer-and-actress in July after seven years of marriage - is even said to be prepared to take legal action to prevent Casper from driving his children anywhere.
The source added: "This wasn't a threat that Marc gave Jen. He will go straight to family court if he needs to get a judge involved to make sure Casper doesn't get behind the wheel with his kids in the car."
Casper has been arrested twice for speeding and driving on a suspended license.
He was also charged with driving without a valid license in 2004, 2006 and 2007 while in 2005 he allegedly evaded electronic toll charges. In 2004 and 2005 he was reportedly caught for speeding.
Casper posted $26 000 in relations to the charges - which are still pending - and in March he pleaded no contest.
He is now scheduled to appear in court on January 5 2012 and must complete 10 days of community service before then. If found guilty he could be sent to jail for 90 days and pay a $500 fine.
