Are Jennifer Lopez and Drake dating?

The 47-year-old appeared on The Ellen Degeneres show, talking about how she doesn't date younger men, although she has in the past. This comes after rumours emerged of her being in a relationship with 30-year-old Canadian rapper Drake, nearly twenty years her junior, which the pair have not confirmed as of yet.

Rumours emerged when the two were spotted kissing whilst promoting a possible collaboration. Speaking on Ellen, Jennifer Lopez said "I don't date younger men. It's not like you have to be younger. It's not about that".

However, the singer was quick to dismiss the rumours, stating that they were just 'hanging out: "we were not writing a song right at that moment. We we're just hanging out. Actually, he sent me a song that he wanted me to be on, and then I got the song, and yeah, we have a song together".

She added "I just meet people and if I go out with them, I go out with them. And if I like them then I like them. And if I don't, I don't. It's about the person. It's about who they are. It has nothing to do with their age".

Jennifer Lopez on Ellen

Later on in the interview with Ellen, Jennifer Lopez mentioned her previous relationship with 29-year-old Casper Smart, who she reportedly split from last summer.

The singer said "there's this thing because I dated Casper Smart, and he was younger, and he was the first guy I ever dated who was younger than me, but then I got labelled right away, she added.

On her show, Ellen DeGeneres cheekily asked "Did y'all really write a song together? "Yes, he did," Lopez responded. The singer is well-known for dating younger men, so her response on dating them comes as quite a shock. although, she claims in the interview that her relationships with younger men are not intentional, but instead just happen.

Drake looked as though he was starting to get over the Latino singer, when it was reported that he had moved on to Canadian model Winnie Harlow.

What is clear though, is that Jennifer Lopez does not date younger men because of their age, but because of who they are. In her opinion, age is just a number.
