Lopez Sues The Blues

The former chauffeur for Jennifer Lopez can move forward with his lawsuit against the entertainer, unencumbered by a potential countersuit.

A judge recently shot down Lopez’s $20 million countersuit against the driver, who Lopez claims threatened to reveal her secrets unless she forked over $2.8 million – secrets he allegedly heard while driving her around.

Hakob Manoukian is suing Lopez for wrongful termination and breach of contract. Manoukian claims he was forced off the job after being publicly dressed down by Lopez manager Benny Medina.

Manoukian’s attorneys argued Lopez filed her lawsuit to punish him for filing, and the judge agreed, according to the Huffington Post.

Lopez recently defended herself against a rumor that she got a German hotel maid fired for asking for an autograph.

“C’mon thought you knew me better than this,” she tweeted in November. “Would never get anyone fired over an autograph. 1st I heard of this was on twitter. #hurtful.”
