Los Angeles: Choreographer Casper Smart finds it "hard" to be singer Jennifer Lopez`s former lover because people think he only had his job as a dance instructor because they were dating.
Smart split from Lopez, who he met while working as one of her backing dancers, earlier this year and has confessed it`s difficult to get people to take him and his career seriously following the break-up, reports contactmusic.com.
"It`s also hard being looked at as, `You only had that job because you were the boyfriend`. So now, standing on the other side, people go, `Oh, wow, he actually does this for this person, this person and this person`," he explained.
"And before Jennifer I did a lot of stuff with a lot of other big artists," the choreographer added.
