Brahma, the beer, paid for Jennifer Lopez plus several to be in Rio for Carnival. Plus several nowadays always includes the backup dancer. Because her life doesn’t exist without him until they marry and divorce. If you’re Casper Smart, do you put it on your resume that you ARE, soon to be WERE, JLo’s boyfriend?
