Development is latest in long legal fight over ’90s home movies
Old home videos of Jennifer Lopez may be up for grabs next week.
Because of a judge's ruling Thursday, the girlfriend of Jennifer Lopez's former husband plans to begin shopping hours of videos of the "American Idol" judge from before she became a superstar, a producer involved with the project tells TheWrap.
Lopez's attorneys did not immediately return calls for comment Friday.
The ruling Thursday continues years of feuding over the tapes between Lopez and Ojani Noa, who was married to Lopez for 11 months beginning in 1997.
A judge had ordered Noa and producer Ed Meyer not to release a movie about the relationship or Noa's 11 hours of home videos of Lopez. Noa met Lopez when he worked in a Miami restaurant and later managed her restaurant, Madre's, in Pasadena.
Meyer told TheWrap that the order preventing the release of the movie and videos doesn't apply to Noa's girlfriend, Claudia Vazquez, who formed a partnership with Meyer and Noa.
A judge ruled Thursday that Lopez can't try to prevent Vazquez from selling the footage, so she plans to begin shopping it around on Tuesday in hopes of marketing it as a box set for fans, Meyer said.
Though the videos contain "a lot of nudity," Meyer said, the footage Vazquez hopes to sell is non-sexual and features Lopez singing and spending time with Noa's family.
"It's the nicest collection of home videos that you can imagine," said Meyer, who estimates the videos could be sold for millions of dollars.
