Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart to Sue Over “Gay Sex Club” Story

EXCLUSIVE

(Star)

The new Star cover attack on Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart is a doozy — and the couple is planning to fight back.

According to the tabloid, which has published fiction about them for months, Smart “betrayed” Lopez by getting “caught” in a “gay sex club.”

What supposedly happened?

Star suggests that paparazzi photos of Smart allegedly entering an X-rated peepshow in New York on July 23 are evidence that he’s engaged in sexual activities behind Lopez’s back.

The pictures — which everyone saw and mostly ignored a week ago — don’t actually show anything.

Smart is seen talking on his cell phone in the middle of Manhattan in broad daylight, making no effort to hide.

He momentarily steps into a door and then comes back out.

That’s it.

But Star falsely claims he was “caught” in a “sex club.”

Based on… what?

Well, the magazine says it sent an “undercover reporter” into the establishment, only to discover it’s a “well-known cruising spot for gay men looking for instant hookups.”

Star’s correspondent offers a long, fairly graphic description of his investigation of the peepshow and its clientele — but never establishes what, if anything, Smart did there.

In other words, Star has nothing, but still went with the sensationalistic claims.

The tabloid spends a huge chunk of space pretending that previously debunked rumors about Smart’s sexuality somehow prove that something illicit must have happened at the peepshow.

Star also manages to ignore its own staggeringly bad track record with Lopez-Smart stories — such as the time it made up a secret Mexican wedding for the couple or falsely alleged that they were “trying for a baby.”

The lesson, as always, is that Star seemingly knows nothing and makes up stuff.

But this latest failed Star “exclusive” might land the tab in hot water.

Lawyers for Lopez and Smart tell Gossip Cop the tabloid’s bogus cover story is “false, malicious and defamatory.”

“Ms. Lopez and Mr. Smart will pursue all remedies available to them under the law,” their attorneys tell us.

We’re also told that they intend to file a lawsuit against Star.
