Meet Gilly Lyer, she is the former assistant of Jennifer Lopez, who according to radaronline reports has allegedly quit her job! According to the article Gilly Iyer used to be JLO’s right hand but recently departed from her side due to the way J.Lo’s boyfriend Casper Smart was treating her workers!
Gilly who is 37-years-old had planned her departure for some time and decided to make the move after music producer Jermaine Dupri joined the ‘Touch My Body’s management team. She is from Irvine, Cali but currently lives in L.A. Her previous locations include Newport Beach, CA; Orange, CA; and San Pedro, CA.
A source told RadarOnline.com:
”Gilly had enough, she was over it. J.Lo’s boyfriend Casper Smart has allegedly been throwing his weight around and would ”mistreat, fire and alienate her” workers
”Casper always insisted that Jennifer’s staff call him Mr. Smart and even demanded that Gilly get him drinks.”
