J.Lo sues ex-husband
13:30 13 April 2006
Jennifer Lopez is suing her first husband for blackmail.
The Latin star, now married to singer Marc Anthony, is in court regarding an alleged $5 million extortion plot.
The 'Out of Sight' star says her first husband, Ojani Noa, demanded she paid him the staggering sum or he would reveal intimate details of their relationship to the media.
America's New York Post newspaper published a synopsis of Noa's book in January.
The star also claims Noa sent her a letter stating he would not stop the book being published unless Lopez paid him off.
The diva fell in love with Noa while he worked as a waiter at a Miami restaurant.
The two got hitched in 1997 but split a year later. Her second marriage to choreographer Cris Judd, in 2001, lasted for just nine months.
The curvaceous brunette enjoyed a whirlwind romance and a brief engagement with Hollywood actor Ben Aflleck, before finally settling down with current spouse Marc Anthony in 2004.
