J.LO & CASPER SMART
Jennifer Lopez‘s friends first raised their eyebrows nine months ago when, on the heels of her split with Marc Anthony, the diva hooked up with Casper Smart, a dancer 18 years her junior. Their concern grew when she hired her new man to choreograph her world tour. Now pals are worried as Lopez deals with the fallout from reports claiming Smart, 25, visited an exotic massage parlor and peep show in New York City on July 23, the day before her 43rd birthday. Attorneys for the couple say the allegations are “false” and “malicious,” and sources close to the superstar tell Scoop that Lopez is standing by her man. “But things have changed,” says an insider. For one? “She’s getting frustrated with him,” says a friend of the couple’s. Adds the insider: “She is not happy about the drama Casper created. He swears he didn’t [do anything wrong] and she believes him, but it’s a reminder that he is young and immature.” With the tour booked through year’s end, the friend says Lopez is not ready to call it quits: “Jennifer doesn’t like to be alone. I think he’ll be around until she finds a replacement.”

ROB & KRISTEN
It’s been two weeks since Kristen Stewart admitted to a tryst with director Rupert Sanders, 41, and a source says Robert Pattinson is still reeling. “One moment he thought he had his partner,” says a source, “and the next he was forced to rethink decisions he’s made.” Next week the actor, 26, will be promoting his new movie Cosmopolis, but don’t expect any soul baring. “His press appearances were scheduled previously and are centered solely on promoting Cosmopolis,” says his rep. Meanwhile Stewart, 22, continues to lean on family, and Pattinson on friends. “He’s sad about it all,” says the source.
NATALIE PORTMAN & BENJAMIN MILLEPIED
True love moves fast: Back in 2009 Portman, 31, fell for the dashing Millepied, 35, who choreographed her Oscar-winning turn as a ballerina in Black Swan. Soon after that the couple had a son together, 14-month-old Aleph. Now they’ve tied the knot-marrying on Aug. 4 in a romantic cliff-top ceremony in Big Sur, Calif., in front of about 100 guests, including friends Macaulay Culkin and Ivanka Trump (she’s married to Natalie’s Harvard pal and New York real estate heir Jared Kushner). The ceremony blended traditional Jewish elements with bucolic surroundings-a chuppah (wedding canopy) of weathered wood, twigs and local wildflowers-and a vegan menu. “Ben is such a great guy, and she looks so content and happy,” says Nexxus creative director Kevin Mancuso, who has often styled Portman’s hair. “When it’s the real thing, it really shows.” And it did: Their hora dance in front of a klezmer band lasted a joyous 20 minutes, ending with the newly married couple lifted high aloft in chairs. Says a source: “Natalie was elated the whole night.”
ASHTON & MILA
THEIR TROPICAL GETAWAY
Nearly four months after first being spotted together, lovebirds Ashton Kutcher, 34, and Mila Kunis, 29, touched down in paradise last week for a romantic vacation in Bali. (They reportedly stayed at the ultraprivate Amanusa resort.) Even at the airport, they were affectionate: “They got their luggage and right away began holding hands,” says an observer. Meanwhile Kutcher’s estranged wife, Demi Moore, 49-who’s back in L.A. after a monthlong stint in New York City filming Very Good Girls-is struggling to move on, say sources. Though she socialized with pals at the Bourne Legacy premiere afterparty on July 30, a source close to her says she appears to be in emotional turmoil and “still looks very thin.”

WHETHER COMPETING FOR AWARDS OR SOUNDING OFF ON HER SHOWS, ELTON JOHN CAN’T STOP DISSING MADGE
“Madonna, best live act? … Anyone who lip-syncs when you pay 75 pounds to see them should be shot,” he said about her in 2004.
“We’ve got a lot of competition. Madonna hasn’t got a f—ing chance,” he blasted about their Golden Globe nods in January.
“She’s such a nightmare. Her career’s over … and she looks like a fairground stripper,” he told Australia’s Channel 7 on Aug. 5.
Be careful what you wish for! “I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years,” she said after beating him for the Globe.
