Jennifer Lopez wins court order to block ex from selling sex movie
Jennifer Lopez won a court order Monday barring her first husband from making their sex life public - at least for a day.
LOS ANGELES - Jennifer Lopez won a court order Monday barring her first husband from making their sex life public - at least for a day.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant issued a temporary restraining order blocking distribution of a proposed movie, "The J.Lo and Ojani Noa Story." The order is in effect until a hearing on whether to extend it is completed. That hearing was scheduled to resume Tuesday.
"I'm going to fight this," Noa said of the order.
Lopez sued Noa on Friday for $10 million, claiming he breached a prior confidentiality agreement by intending to sell a movie containing hours of home video footage, including some showing Lopez in sexual situations on their 1997 honeymoon.
The suit also claims invasion of privacy by "public disclosure of private facts which would be offensive and objectionable to a reasonable person and which is not of legitimate public concern."
Lopez also sued Ed Meyer, Noa's manager and producer of the proposed movie.
Meyer's attorney, Frank Sanes Jr., unsuccessfully argued in court that his client was not bound by Noa's confidentiality agreement and shouldn't be subject to the restraining order.
The singer-actress wed Noa in 1997, but their marriage lasted just 11 months. They have fought two previous court battles.
Noa obtained a $125,000 settlement from Lopez in a 2004 suit that claimed she fired him without cause from a job as manager of her now-defunct Pasadena restaurant. As part of the settlement, he agreed not to disparage Lopez or sell private or intimate details about her or their relationship.
In 2007, Lopez won $545,000 in damages and attorney fees in another lawsuit that blocked Noa from publishing a ghostwritten tell-all book. Lopez claimed Noa had demanded $5 million to keep him from publishing the book.
According to court documents, the book claimed that Lopez had multiple affairs during her marriage to Noa, including one with current husband Marc Antony.
Lopez, 40, married Antony in 2004 and they have two children. She also was married to choreographer Cris Judd in 2001. The marriage lasted for nine months.
