Jennifer Lopez suing ex-husband over sale of ‘sexual’ honeymoon videos
Ojani Noa was married to Jennifer Lopez for less than a year in the late 1990s.
Jennifer Lopez ‘s former flame is out to make a buck off their oh-so-brief marriage with revealing videos from their honeymoon!
Ojani Noa. who was married to Lopez for less than a year in the late 1990s, was hauled into court Monday after he started shopping around a tell-all movie based on the revealing home-footage.
J.Lo is biting back – suing for $10 million and demanding a permanent court order blocking Noa from making any videos public.
Judge James Chalafant put off a decision until Tuesday, asking J.Lo’s side for extra evidence.
“I’m going to fight this,” Noa vowed.
Lopez, in court papers, says she’s suffered “shame, mortification, hurt feelings, embarrassment, (and) humiliation.”
This is not the first time Noa – J.Lo’s first of three husbands – has tried to embarass her.
He threatened two years ago to write a tell-all unless he was paid $5 million. Instead, a judge awared the Latina diva $545,000 and quashed the book, which he ruled violated a 2004 deal not to publish details of their relationship.
Court documents showed that the book was going to claim Lopez cheated on Noa during their brief marriage – including a fling with current hubby Marc Antony. who she wed in 2004.
The Bronx -born bombshell was also was married to choreographer Cris Judd in 2001. That marriage lasted for nine months.
Noa’s newest exploitation attempt includes plans for a movie called “How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The JLo and Ojani Noa Story.”Court documents say the film would be the”story of Jenniferl Lopez ‘s tumultuous first marriage to Cuban immigrant, chef and model Ojani Noa.”
Lopez’s team calls the proposed movie an “outrageous attempt”to make money after he agreed to a settlement”for which he was paid substantial compensation.”
Not so, says a producer working on the movie. It was to be just a goofy mockumentary, a la Borat.
“It’s our right to freedom of speech,”said Claudia Vazquez.”There’s nothing they can do to stop it. If we have to, we’ll just change the name.”
And what of the controversial home videos?
Lopez’s side says the movie-making crew wants to sell 11-plus hours of footage that depicts Lopez “in a revealing lack of clothing, and in sexual situations, especially in the hotel room from (her and Noa’s) honeymoon.”
Also, wrong, according to Vazquez. It’s not for sale, and the script-writing team was watching the 12-hours of footage to get an accurate read on the relationship.
The movies, were filmed using a home camcorder, and preserved the couple’s marriage proposal, wedding and honeymoon.
Footage also includes candid moments of Noa practicing lines for a soap opera, Lopez rehersing scenes from her hit film “Selena,” and the couple cooking and swimming.
“It’s not pornographic. Yeah, she’s in a bathing suit, but it’s more romantic,” Vazquez said.
The movie has been in the works for the past six months, and regardless of the lawsuit threat, it’s moving ahead, Vazquez insisted.
A casting call for Lopez-look-alikes garnered more than 1,000 reponses, she said.
