This story epitomizes the word "problematic." It involves a sex-tape, an A-List celebrity, lack of consent for release of said sex-tape, and a jerk who could potentially make a whole lot of money off of the whole thing. In other words, an overall terrible situation.
The A-List celebrity is none other than Jenny From The Block herself, a.k.a. J-Lo, a.k.a. Jennifer Lopez. Apparently, she recorded a private sex-tape in 1997 with her first husband Ojani Noa. The two were married for a mere 11 months, but the divorce was the last thing on their minds on their honeymoon when they recorded the tape.
Here the two are below:
This all could go down due to a legal loophole! After a complicated six-year legal battle, The Mirror now reports that J-Lo's sex-tape is up for grabs because the singer withdrew her claims while the case was in arbitration.
Noa's "business partner" Ed Meyer said the following to Touch magazine about the money-hungry duo's plan:
"We are going to produce a DVD and also have a streaming release of the J.Lo home video footage.
There is revealing video of her with a lack of clothing and in sexual situations, especially in the hotel footage from the honeymoon."
He went on to say that the footage will "shock her fans," and that he has "unfinished business" with J-Lo.
I am not entirely sure what provoked this to unearth itself nearly 20 years after the fact, but it's definitely safe to say this whole situation makes a lot of people uneasy -- especially J-Lo fans.
J-Lo was one of my childhood crushes, and I admit anything sexual involving the Puerto Rican star is enticing. The only difference here is that she's not releasing this sex-tape consensually. There's something strange about this situation, and I am not cool with it. But I guess that's the age we live in.
I guess I'll just bump "I'm Real" and move on, hoping that this gets cleared up...
