The news comes after the star insisted she was only having fun
Jennifer Lopez and Drake started dating in late 2016 in what initially seemed like a casual fling. However, it’s been reported that the 47-year-old star is “head over heels” for the rapper, who is 17 years her junior.
An insider explained to Entertainment Tonight how the relationship is heating up, adding: “She’s head over heels for Drake. It’s a new relationship, but she really likes him. She’s really into him.”
And Jennifer recently revealed they have been working on new music together.
When asked for details about their new project during a Shades of Blue conference, she said: “He just asked me to do a song with him and that’s what we’ve been doing. We’ll see if it’s on his next album.”
Although she is now considering a serious relationship, Jennifer had initially wanted nothing but an easy and fun time with the artist.
A source said: “She has not been gushing about her new romance to friends or family, and instead has been trying to play it all cool. She wants to keep things between them easy, light and fun.
She knows Drake is a bit of a player, so to help her avoid getting whipped on him, she is trying to take things slow and not put any pressure on him. The last thing Jennifer wants is for Drake to do something to make her look foolish or feel like she has been played.”
Meanwhile, Jennifer – who has two children with Marc Anthony – previously gushed about the “wonderful people” in her life.
“Nobody does anything alone. Even with the kids, it takes a village.
But I just have wonderful people in my life. I have a lot of loving people, a lot of people that believe in me and believe in what we’re doing together.
They know the kids come first and everything else kind of falls in line after that, and we just take it one day at a time.”
