Jennifer Lopez’s just filed a lawsuit for about $20 million against her former driver and head of security, Hakob Manoukian, according to a lawsuit filed Friday by the singer/actress.
What did he do to the former “American Idol” judge to make her so mad? Find out… after the jump!
According to a filing in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Lopez is suing Manoukian claiming that he tried to blackmail her by threatening to reveal damaging information he’d obtained about her during his time of employment with the star. Apparently he “made written and oral demands that unless Manoukian was paid $2.8M, he would disclose sensitive and personal information that he had allegedly heard while driving Ms. Lopez.”
The odd part about this whole thing is that Lopez wouldn’t be bothering with him had he not first filed a suit against her! He claimed that he was demoted to Lopez’s Los Angeles driver when he complained about lost pay. But when you’re J. Lo, you can afford good lawyers, and it seems that she has the upper hand on this one.
What a mess!
