Jennifer Lopez lawsuit: she sues former driver for extortion
Jennifer Lopez wants justice! The singer has sued her former driver for extortion. The 43-year-old diva claims Hakob Manoukian demanded $2.8 million. Otherwise he would tell the media about secrets he overheard while working for Lopez.
Lopez says that Manoukian wanted to control her entire security team and asked for more money for his job. When Lopez denied his wishes, Manoukian threatened to spill confidential information about the singer. He asked for $2.8 million. Otherwise he would take his information to authorities and have her criminally prosecuted. What kind of information is he talking about?
The lawsuit is actually a countersuit to a claim filed bythe driver. He said he was forced to resign after being publicly berated by the singer’s manager, Benny Medina.
Jennifer Lopez is suing for damages in excess of $20 million. Isn’t too much? It looks like Jennifer Lopez is trying to intimidate the driver. She is asking a lot of money so he can become scared of losing the lawsuit. That would probably convince him to drop his own lawsuit. It’s impossible for a former driver to pay that money . Good strategy! Jennifer Lopez is probably paying a lot to her lawyer to come up with these brilliant ideas. One thing is for sure: it gets her out of trouble very often.
