Los Angeles: Singer Marc Anthony has revealed
that not only he is on good terms with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez, but he`s also very close to her boyfriend Casper Smart.

Smart, 26, and Lopez, 44, have been dating for two years, reported Us magazine.
"I like them young, too!. I`m not one to judge. It`s great. As a matter of fact, we were texting back and forth two days ago. We`re actually really, really good friends. From the very beginning."

"When you love someone and you care for someone... Jennifer and I -- I don`t say it lightly -- we`re great friends. You know, anybody that means anything to her means something to me. That`s keeping it simple. Casper`s a great guy. He`s been great to my children. And I have nothing but respect for him, absolutely nothing but respect," Anthony said.

Anthony, 45, and the `American Idol` judge, parents to twins Max and Emme, 5, split in July 2011 after seven years of marriage.
