Jennifer Lopez Responds to Man's Bizarre Lawsuit
Jennifer Lopez has been linked to a bizarre lawsuit alleging she tricked a man into sending his naked pictures to her. Lopez's representative has responded to the lawsuit, saying it's "a desperate attempt for notoriety" coming from a guy named Rodrigo Ruiz.
Ruiz said in his $10,000 lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles, that Lopez contacted him randomly in 2008 and told him that she planned to leave her husband, Marc Anthony, for him. First of the three letters that TMZ required said, "I just wanted to let you know that I do remember you and that I am interested in you. I have plans on leaving my husband. But I can't say much right now so that's it for now. Send me pictures of you both with clothes and without clothes."
Lopez and Anthony split in July 2011 and their divorce was finalized the next year. The second letter that the singer allegedly sent Ruiz read, "This is Jennifer Lopez writing to you again and just to let you know that I got your packages, music, and demos. And just to let you know you need to send me pictures of you with and without clothes."
Lopez went on dating her dancer Casper Smart. Third letter said, "This is Jennifer Lopez and as you can tell its been a while since I last wrote and as you can see I have a new boyfriend which means your in for the long haul and you have to put up with the fact that I am f**king him and sucking his d**k."
Ruiz filed a police report claiming sexual harassment against Lopez. He also said Lopez made left him so depressed he sought counseling. TMZ dug in further into the case by contacting the owner of the post office box the letters originated from. It belonged to a 53-year-old woman who hung up on the site after saying she ran a Jennifer Lopez fan mail exchange.
Lopez's rep said in a statement, "This is a small claims matter that appears to be a desperate attempt for notoriety. Ms Lopez has never seen or met the plaintiff, nor has she ever communicated with him. We believe this matter should be summarily dismissed."
