After much speculation on the relationship between American singer Jennifer Lopez and toyboy Casper Smart, a new intimate photo of the two indicate that they are back together.

The image released by TMZ shows the celebs in a liplock at the backstage of Fox's popular singing competition "American Idol". The TMZ report suggests the open kiss could be a sign that the couple are willing to officially announce their relationship to fans. 

The website also claimed that the two have been spending quality time with each other in the past few months as they were spotted together at Big Sean's House of Blues gig and GQ event.

The "American Idol" judge and the back-up dancer started dating each other in 2011 and it lasted for nearly two-and-half years. In June 2014, the celebs called it quits; the reason for the break- up is said to be Smart's rumoured relationship with other women on social media.

However, the 45-year-old entertainer never blamed 27-year-old choreographer for their split, preferring to remain tight-lipped about the rumours.
