J.Lo claims Hakob Manoukian threatens to spill 'sensitive and personal information' he heard while working for her.
Jennifer Lopez fires back at her former chauffeur Hakob Manoukian, who sues her, manager Benny Medina and ex-husband Marc Anthony for breach of contract last April. She files an extortion lawsuit, accusing her ex-employee of blackmailing her.
J.Lo claims Manoukian signed a confidentiality agreement that banned him from disclosing any personal info he heard while working for her. Regardless, his lawyer allegedly asks for $2.8 million, or else he will spill "sensitive and personal information" about her.
The girlfriend of Casper Smart is seeking $20 million in damages. In the lawsuit, the 43-year-old singer also denies accusation that Manoukian didn't receive the full salary they agreed upon. She dismisses allegation that Medina treated him poorly as well.
She says Manoukian was "hostile and angry" toward Medina after his recommended security team was turned down by the manager. "In the furtherance of this plot, he abruptly terminated his employment with Ms. Lopez and began to threaten her," she states.
