Jennifer López Wins Legal Battle Against Her Ex
The singer's former husband, Ojani Noa, won't be able to publish a tell-all book about his life with JLo
Good news for Jennifer López. People.com reports that a Los Angeles court-appointed arbitrator ruled in a lawsuit filed by JLo that her Cuban-born ex husband, Ojani Noa, should pay her almost $545,000 for planning to write a book about their life together. López, 39, sued her first husband, a former waiter, after he threatened to publish a book that reportedly described the couple's first sexual encounter, among other tidbits. López accused Noa of violating a previous settlement in which he had agreed not to reveal private details of their relationship. According to People.com, Noa, 33 will have to pay $200,000 in compensatory damages to the actress and singer. The remaining amount will cover her legal fees and arbitration costs.
If forking out nearly half a million weren't enough, Noa is permanently barred from “making critical or denigrating” remarks about the artist and will have to hand over to López or her attorneys copies of all the material in the book, which was to be titled “The Unknown Truth: A Passionate Portrait Of A Serial Thriller”. López and Noa were married less than a year, from February 22, 1997 to January 1, 1998.
Peopleenespanol.com contacted the artist's publicists and those calls have yet to be returned.
