Jennifer Lopez
just lost a huge round in court against her ex-driver -- because a judge has tossed out the singer's $20 million extortion lawsuit against him.

TMZ broke the story ... J.Lo filed the countersuit against her former chauffeur Hakob Manoukian, who had sued, claiming he was forced to resign after being publicly berated by Jennifer's manager Benny Medina.

After Hakob resigned, J.Lo claimed he demanded $2.8 million from her or else he'd air her dirty laundry in the media ... spilling secrets he overheard while driving her around.

Hakob's attorney filed a motion to dismiss J.Lo's countersuit, claiming she was trying to punish him for filing a legitimate employment lawsuit against her.

The judge agreed ... ruling in the ex-wheelman's favor. Hakob's suit is still pending.

She is a nothing and can't sing or dance. The only thing she has going for her, is she's za Mexican. Old washed up singers like her , Madonna , Carry , Spears and Christine A. They will do anything to stay in the news.

She did the same as so many others who think they are invincible yet apparently are filled with dirty laundry. May I remind..django unchained supervising art director production designer extortion suit Klassen v. Bralalalala . Directors suit v Bra also tossed there.

I hate J.Blo. But I also hate shady Armenian grifters. Aaaaaaaach. What to do? Maybe we'll all get lucky and a meteor will hit the courthouse on Day 1.

No professional singer I have heard has such intonation problems! Flat, flat, flat is her singing and without autotune there would be no career. She started off so strong as a girl who made it out of the neighborhood but it appears even in the hood they have better manners, care and protect each other and have loyalty. Jen is so deeply insecure she must set herself above us in order to manage her "incredibly complicated important life" a life we will never comprehend. We do understand this Jennifer, YOU ARE OVER.
