Jennifer Lopez doesn't know if she'll marry again
It's been rumored that Jennifer Lopez has been getting cozy with 20-something dancer Casper Smart, but the "Idol" judge told Matt Lauer on "Today" that she's still recovering from her recent split.
Lopez, who separated from husband Marc Anthony last July, told Lauer that the change in her personal life is "still fresh," adding that she doesn't know if she'll ever marry again. "It's not the time to think about [marriage] yet."
What is on her mind is her new show with her estranged spouse, "Q'Viva! The Chosen," which she continued to work on with Anthony following their separation.
