Suing her former driver…
Jennifer Lopez has filed a lawsuit for $20 million against her ex-driver for extortion. TMZ reports that J-Lo has filed the suit against Hakob Manoukian as a counterclaim to his lawsuit, in which he says he was forced to quit after being verbally abused by Lopez's manager Benny Medina.
Lopez's lawsuit says that Manoukian got too ambitious and wanted to gain control over her security team, with added pay. When he was denied, he threatened to reveal confidential information, which he claimed she could be criminally prosecuted over, unless she paid up $2.8 million.
Lopez is suing for more than $20 million in damages.
