Judge Says

J.Lo's Ex Has to Pay!

9/5/2007 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0905_jlo_01-1Don't mess with Jenny from the block!

TMZ has learned that a judge just awarded the singer/actor nearly $545,000 in a breach-of-contract lawsuit she filed against her first husband, former restaurant manager Ojani Noa, back in April of 2006.

According to the suit, Noa had demanded $5 million from Lopez to keep him from selling a tell-all book about the star. In January of 2005, Noa allegedly sent a letter to Lopez's lawyer, indicating he intended to shop around a book proposal about his ex-wife. Lopez then says Noa wrote a letter saying he'd scrap the book if she paid him $5 million.

The judge also issued a permanent injunction against Noa, barring him from publishing "negative, denigrating and disparaging" details about La Lopez.

Love DOES cost a thing!

His freedom of speech wasn't taken away, it was something that was agreed upon during the divorce. He agreed to it, now he has to stick to it.
Wow, people are greedy. I can't believe that someone would do something like that.

We do have freedom of speech but blackmail is illegal. And if I read this correctly, her ex threatend to shop around for publishers unless she paid him 5 million dollars, that's blackmail and he was stupid enough to submit written proof.

Good!! I'm glad for her. These loser guys who try to make money off their ex's after the "marriage" fails then try to make money by selling off their so called "story" deserve what they get, which is "nada". The guy basically tried to blackmail her. Again, I say LOSER.

Oh Please    

Ain't nothin wrong with J-Lo. This website is all about celebrities and almost everyone who posts are just plain haters. Jenny didn't say what block she was from you jealous be-yatch. Don't hate on her because of where her parents put her in school when she was a minor. Obviously it paid off because she's rich and famous and you are a big, fat, welfare gettin loser!!!
