Los Angeles - Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lopez, 42, and the 24-year-old back-up dancer reported as her new flame say age doesn't matter - and they have proudly tweeted it.
The singer and actress, who has not confirmed a romance with Casper Smart, retweeted messages from him saying other people's views don't matter and that "our hearts are endless".
"We should all honour our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts; Love and be happy!" said one comment retweeted by JLo, who split with husband Marc Anthony last year.
'Our hearts are endless'
"Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining ... Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant ...Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite," added another on Wednesday.
Media reports suggest the pair have been dating for three months. She would not be the first older superstar to take a younger lover, following in the footsteps of Madonna and Demi Moore.
The New York-born, Puerto Rican singer and American Idol talent judge announced her split from Anthony last July. The former couple are parents to 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, born in February 2008.
