Is there a love connection between ‘Dirty Dancing’ costars Nicole Scherzinger and Casper Smart? The former ‘X Factor’ judge and JLo’s ex sparked dating rumors after they left the premiere together!
Nicole Scherzinger, 38, stunned in white at the Dirty Dancing premiere on Thursday, May 18, but everyone has been buzzing about who she left the event with! Nicole was spotted leaving the premiere with Jennifer Lopez’s, 47, ex Casper Smart, 30. Don’t get too excited about the potential pair because Nicole is reportedly still dating tennis star Grigor Dimitrov, 26. She probably just wanted to keep celebrating with Casper at the afterparty in TAO nightclub in LA.. They were costars together in Dirty Dancing reboot so it would make sense for them to hangout. Nicole played Penny Rivera and Casper was Kenny Kostecki.
Nicole looked amazing in a white silk number that had an interesting slit around the lower part of her dress. She covered up with a blazer during the event to keep warm and added the perfect metallic touch with her golden heels. Casper rocked a plaid suit with a short-sleeved button down. He seemed ready to dance the night away in his super cool blue lace-up shoes.
The former X Factor judge almost turned down her role in Dirty Dancing because her character Penny has an abortion. “I was like a crazy thing because, my family, my Papa’s a Bishop and my family’s really hardcore against abortion,” Nicole told The Daily Mail. “So I got the role and I almost didn’t take it because I didn’t want to promote abortion, because my character has an abortion. But I was like, hopefully they can learn from you know her ways and I can be a positive influence.” Dirty Dancing will air on Wednesday, May 24 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
