She wins money for first husband

Jennifer Lopez awarded damages over ex
Jennifer Lopez has won £267,257 in a case against her first husband, who was planning to publish a tell all book about their marriage.

The book was said to claim Lopez had several affairs during their union.

Lopez claimed Ojani Noa had violated a previous legal settlement preventing him from revealing private deails about their relationship.

Noa has been directed to hand over all copies of material related to the book, reports BBC News.

The two married in 1997, and divorced 11 months later.

An arbitrator also imposed permanent injunction against Noa barring him from “criticising, denigrating, casting in a negative light or otherwise disparaging or causing disparagement” to Lopez.

According to court papers, [B]Noa
’s unpublished book alleges Lopez had multiple affairs, including one with her third and current husband Marc Anthony.

Lopez claimed Noa offered not the publish the book in exchange for £2.4 million.

In 2004, he sued his ex-wife for breach of contract.

He claimed she had lured him into taking a £491 per week managerial job at her Pasadena restaurant, firing him five months later.

Noa settled the case for £61,468, and agreed not to disclose private information about their relationship or to disparage Lopez, according to court papers.

However, Lopez’s most recent case claimed Noa’s book plans breached that agreement.

Papers on the current case were filed on Monday (August 6), and a further hearing has been scheduled for September 5.
