Jennifer Lopez Sues Her Former Driver For Extortion

By Michael Lopez

We can only imagine the types of secrets a celebrity driver can hear. And in the case of Jennifer Lopez' wheelman, they were worth about $2.8 million. That's how much Hakob Manoukian was trying to extort her for before she decided to take him to court.

Now JLo wants him to pay her $20 million in damages. According to Lopez' camp, Manoukian tried to pull rank on her security team and butted heads with her manager, Benny Medina.

Hakob doesn't seem ready to back down though. He says he has confidential information about the former American Idol judge that could have her criminally prosecuted!

We can only imagine the details that'll spill out once this case goes to trial. At the very least, it offers an important lesson – stay quiet while you're sitting in the back seat!
