Oh Noa! J.Lo Files Suit

Jennifer Lopez filed suit Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court against her ex-husband Ojani Noa, claiming, among other things, Noa has demanded $5 million from Lopez to keep him from selling a tell-all book about the star.

The lawsuit states that Noa sent a letter to Lopez's attorney dated January 13, 2005 in which Noa "declared his intention to continue to shop his proposed Book and to obtain a publisher for the Book."

According to the court documents, the letter said, "OK, let's face it we can negociate [sic] something, but I'm not stopping my life because of her, I already did many times, and is [sic] not gonna happen again, she may want me to stay quite [sic], and not talk about her it [sic] all in the Book, I'll be more happy to do do, if we can come to an agreement..."

The lawsuit then states that Lopez's attorneys received another letter from Noa, this one dated January 19, 2006 claiming "he would not agree to refrain from marketing his book unless [Lopez] paid him a sum of $5 million."

The lawsuit claims Noa made statements to the New York Post's Page Six alleging "[Lopez] flew [Noa] to Brazil to the set of 'Anaconda' to celebrate his 23rd birthday, and unbeknownst to him, Lopez was also seeing a castmate and that [Lopez] had an affair with Marc Anthony while he was still married to Dayanara Torres (in 1999)."

Ojani Noa could not be reached for comment.
