Jennifer Lopez 's boyfriend Casper Beau threw her a lavish 43rd birthday celebration on a luxury yacht on Tuesday evening (July 24, 2012). One guest aboard the boat told the New York Daily News that Lopez was "ecstatic" with her choreographer boyfriend's efforts.
A blindfolded Lopez was guided onto the boat docked on the Hudson River at around 9.30pm. The singer - wearing a skin-tight red dress - was overjoyed when an "intimate celebration of all of her favourite things" was revealed to her. Around 50 guests were invited onto the yacht, including Mary J Blige and Lopez's manager Benny Medina. Guests were given strict instructions to arrive in either all black or all white to match the color theme (the boat was filled with black and white balloons). The music was taken care of by DJ Pro-Style from Power 105.1, who was reportedly selected for his "Latin flavor". One guest at the party said, "There was lots of dancing.There were a lot of dance-offs on the boat". The food included truffle macaroni and cheese, truffle pizzas with mushrooms and grilled cheese with ham and chicken skewers. For dessert, Lopez was presented with a Hello Kitty birthday cake, with cookies surrounding it.
The party didn't end until about 4.30am, with guests adding, "She was dancing with him (Casper) all night". Lopez recently left the judging panel of American Idol, being replaced by MARIAH CAREY.
