Jennifer Lopez is due in court after a former member of her security detail sued her for unspecified damages. Jennifer Lopez, who is currently a judge on “American Idol” was sued by Hakob Manoukian. Manoukian, an American of Iraqi descent began working for Lopez and her husband at the time, Marc Anthony in 2005. Manoukian claims that he started out as a part-time driver before being coerced by the two to close his company and become their chief of security.
In the suit, Hakob also states that he was paid US $ 200 000 a year as well as other benefits. He says that his tribulations began when he begun interacting with the singer’s influential agent, Benny Medina. Hakob was forced to work alongside the manager who he alleges frequently insulted him in public.
With these altercations, Medina convinced Lopez to strip Manoukian of his security role, effectively making him a chauffeur. This led to his resignation and loss of earnings hence the legal suit. The number of court dates in Jennifer’s diary seems to be growing.
