Bad news for Jennifer Lopez, a Los Angeles court has given Ojani Noa, J.Lo’s first husband, permission to release the personal home videos of J.Lo and Ojani. Lopez, seen at the May 3 launch of her new album “LOVE?” has spent all of 2011 relaunching her career. The release of these private home movies threaten to dampen her recent successes.
RadarOnline reported on Friday that Noa managed to find a loophole in the law that has been preventing him for the last several years from releasing the vidoes.
How did Noa find a loophole? Apparently, Noa sold the footage to his current girlfriend, Claudia Vazquez for her to release it on his behalf. Vazquez has been allowed to release the home videos after she successfully argued that not releasing the tapes is causing her distress.
In legal documents obtained by the site, “Vazquez argues she has and is suffering harm in that she has had difficulty in obtaining work as a result of Lopez’s attempts at enforcing the Injunction against her.”
The ruling also states that,
“Vazquez argues that Lopez, on the other hand, will suffer no harm if Vazquez’s preliminary injunction is granted. Lopez puts forth no arguments contradicting those of Vazquez and, in fact, fails to address this element of the preliminary injunction test altogether. As a result, the Court finds that the balance of the equities weighs in favor of Vazquez.”
Sounds like Noa and Vazquez are real gems. Let this be a lesson to all that you can’t trust anyone.
