Jennifer Lopez’s $20 million extortion lawsuit against former driver dismissed

By Daniel S Levine,

Jennifer Lopez’s $20 million lawsuit against a former chauffeur has been dismissed in court.

The singer filed the lawsuit in August against Hakob Manoukian, who said he had to quit his job when her manager Benny Medina publicly told him off. Manoukian said that Medina “chastised and humiliated” him in public over what he wore and how well he spoke English.

In total, Manoukian was supposed to be paid $200,000, including production pay, which would come when Lopez had a busy schedule. He claimed that he didn’t receive the production pay and bonuses.

For her part, the “Dance Again” singer claimed in her lawsuit that Manoukian wanted $2.8 million or he would go public with his complaints and reveal secrets he heard while driving her.

TMZ reported today that Lopez’s lawsuit has been dismissed by a judge, who sided with Manoukian. The judge said that Lopez was trying to punish him for filing his lawsuit.

Manoukian’s lawsuit is still pending in court.

Lopez recently wrapped up her tour on Saturday in Puerto Rico. While there, she participated in a charity football game with boyfriend Casper Smart. According to The Daily Mail, she played against the members of Wisin y Yandel. Lopez was joined by her twins, Emme and Max.
