Jennifer Lopez Files $20 Million Extortion Lawsuit Against Former Driver

Posted on Wed Aug 8, 2012 09:45 AM PDT

wjlo050912_06_X17crop230.jpgJennifer Lopez has filed a $20 million lawsuit against her former driver Hakob Manoukian ... claiming he tried to blackmail her by threatening to leak private information that he overheard while chauffeuring the singer around.

According to the suit, Lopez worked as JLo's driver for close to a month before quitting after an argument with her management team. The papers go on to say that in October 2011, he took part in "blackmail, extortion, and related acts."

The lawsuit says Manoukian was "forced to resign" from his job after he was denied "production pay."

On October 3, 2011, Manoukian's former attorney reportedly "made written and oral demands that unless Manoukian was paid $2.8M, he would disclose sensitive and personal information that he had allegedly heard while driving Ms. Lopez."

Lopez's attorney claims that this was "in total disregard of Manoukian's signed confidentiality agreement."
