Lawsuit Settled For J Lo

 

05 April 2002

Jennifer Lopez has settled a lawsuit that she filed over a videotape which allegedly showed her having sex.
Regarding the distribution of the videos, which were said to be in circulation, the singer/actress claimed an invasion of privacy.
Lopez's lawyer, Stanton "Larry" Stein, told a settlement hearing in Los Angeles that the singer had dropped the final part of the case in January.
J -Lo filed the suit following the publication of an article on the internet, which suggested that Marion Knight (head of Death Row Records) had "a videotape of Jennifer Lopez making love to a long-time-ago boyfriend" and was "planning to market it on the internet".
Lopez, who used to go out with Knight's rap rival Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs, wanted to prevent anybody from releasing any footage of her.
Mr. Stein, the singer's lawyer, confirmed that Knight and his company quickly "acknowledged that there was no tape and they didn't have any tape with Jennifer involving any nudity".
The suit filed against 'unnamed defendants' was left open because "we didn't know whether somebody else who was in some way affiliated with them would claim some kind of tape or ownership", Mr. Stein said.
"We wanted to make sure we had a lawsuit on file so we could take immediate action", he added.
