Meet Benny Medina who we know as Jenifer Lopez’ manager, I wonder if his latest statements about JLo and her boytoy Casper Smart would get him fired, just in case let’s find out more about Benny.
Nan! JLo is not firing her manager Benny Medina for his latest comments about her and her boyfriend Casper Smart, it seemed more like he talked more like a big brother would about his little sister, protective over her and hopeful that she would find the right man for her, which would be easier if she would give herself the time alone to look carefully instead of having possessive guys pursuing her. Ouch!
‘“She’s not oblivious to her own reality right now, as in, “Damn, I’m 42 with a 24-year-old. Why?”
‘We talked about it yesterday. She was just like, “It’s not even the age, Benny.
‘”It’s actually that I just came out of a relationship where I felt like I was kind of not getting what I needed. And I’m open! So somebody who steps in right now and is actually touching me in a way – it’s very fertile ground!”‘
‘The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone, instead of having obsessive guys pursue her.
The ease with which that obsession becomes a relationship I think sometimes works against her ability to have a real meaningful relationship.
‘And she never half does anything. When she commits to anything in her work, her life, or her relationships, she is in it.’
Benny Medina happens to be the godfather of JLo and arc Anthony’s twins, he launched her career in 1999 along Thalia’s hubby and Sony’s honcho Tommy Mottola, although Benny ad JLo split up in 2003 they got back together 4 years later.
