Lopez is suing her ex-husband Ojani Noa, claiming he demanded $5 million to keep him from publishing a book containing private details about the star
The woman from the block, Jennifer Lopez, is suing her ex-husband Ojani Noa for demanding $5 million from her to keep him from publishing a book containing private details about the star and their relationship.
In her suit, filed Monday April 10th, 2006 in Los Angeles Superior Court, Lopez alleged that Noa violated a settlement agreement the pair reached in October by distributing the manuscript of his book to publishers. Thus she is seeking a restraining order to stop him from publishing the book.
As for you to notice, Lopez's lawyers contacted Noa's attorney soon as learning that a description of the manuscript appeared Jan. 11 in the New York Post. Noa replied in a letter that he would continue to shop his book, while in another letter he also said "that he would not agree to refrain from marketing his book unless (Lopez) paid him the sum of $5 million".
According to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the manuscript contains "negative, denigrating and disparaging" details about Lopez (and we're not talking about Gigli reviews here) which also includes "private and intimate statements."
