A picture of the gold flip flops

Friday, June 18th, 2004

Two days ago we mentioned that various news sources are reporting Marc Anthony bought Jennifer Lopez a pair of sandals by a Brazilian designer with 18-karat gold shavings for a whopping £13,000 (roughly $23,890 US dollars).

I know I’m not the only one dying to know what flip flops the cost of a car look like. So here you are:

Thursday, June 17th, 2004

We here at JLo.net get a lot of misdirected emails from fans addressed to Jennifer Lopez, herself. We would like to clear this up: We are not Jennifer Lopez. We do not have any affiliation with Jennifer Lopez. We cannot contact Jennifer Lopez. We are merely fans.

Anyway, in these emails to Jennifer, you write:

More wedding info: Jennifer and Marc were married by the same man who officiated her second wedding (to Cris Judd) – her lawyer Barry Hirsch. The New York Daily News also reports that the couple got a “confidential wedding license” from the Norwalk County Clerks office in southern California two days before the wedding. For fear of being sighted, they didn’t even leave the car to fill out the paperwork. They called into the office and asked an employee to bring out the forms and requested a nearby deputy sheriff to witness them sign the license.

New movie: Jennifer Lopez has purchased the rights to produce a biopic about Puerto Rican jazz legend Hector Lavoe to played by new husband Marc Anthony. J. Lo reportedly planned to star in the movie opposite Marc, but decided her talents could be better utilized behind the camera.

Waxing Jennifer: Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in New York City currently has a wax figure of Jennifer Lopez wearing a wedding gown on display. This is Madame Tussaud’s first animated figure – Jennifer becomes a “blushing bride” when you blow into her ear. Several pictures here.

The Midas Feet: Said to believe Jennifer Lopez’s feet are the most beautiful he’s ever seen, it’s rumored that Marc Anthony bought her a pair of flip flops for 13,000 British pounds. The sandals were made by a Brazilian designer and feature 18 karat gold shavings in the shape of feathers.

Rumor: Russian President & 450 orphans stood up by J. Lo

Monday, June 14th, 2004

Jennifer Lopez, as PAGE SIX reported this week, was supposed to be in Moscow to open the JLo store there. But Lopez had also agreed, as a UNESCO ambassador, to hold a fund-raiser with Vladimir Putin for the orphans. Instead, the possibly pregnant pop star stayed in Beverly Hills and married Marc Anthony.

Lopez’s no-show — and her manager Simon Fields’ denial that she was ever going to show up in the first place — has left the Russians fuming.

Melanie A. Bonvicino, a spokesperson for the Russian JLo licensee, Toroil S.A., raged: “Contrary to Simon Fields’ statements on Tuesday, there definitely exists a valid and binding agreement with my clients, Toroil, S.A., which has been signed by both Ms. Lopez and Mr. Fields.”

Fields denied any contract with Toroil S.A. existed and said Lopez couldn’t go to Russia because she was filming “Monster-in-Law.”

“Jennifer didn’t let us know she wasn’t coming until the day she was supposed to get on the plane.”

Rumor: Tell-All Deal with Telemundo?

Monday, June 14th, 2004

Think it’s strange how Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez refuse to even acknowledge their nuptials? Telemundo may have the answer. Rumors are circulating that the couple have made plans to give the Spanish-language television network Telemundo an exclusive on their wedding. This isn’t far-fetched as Jennifer recently became a production partner for the network stating, “I wanted to get involved in making shows for Telemundo because I am committed to creating quality shows for our culture.”

Agents Leave Jennifer Lopez

Saturday, June 12th, 2004

Representatives of Jennifer Lopez at Dan Klores have reportedly left Ms. Lopez due to her demanding and sneaky behavior. On the Lopez side, however, she supposedly fired them.

“It was Klores’ people who wanted out. They took on J.Lo at a reduced fee, but representing her turned out to be a job and a half. Let’s put it this way, J.Lo is not exactly low maintenance. Then, they were totally blind-sided by this wedding. They had flatly denied the story to journalists who they’ve worked with and they weren’t happy about being made to look like liars.”

Lopez has a new representative now: Leslie Sloane, as noted before.

Is “Jenthony” Legal?

Thursday, June 10th, 2004

Rumors are going around saying Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s marriage might not have been legal. After Marc Anthony’s divorce, there may have been a 60-day buffer period allowing either members to appeal. This could then invalidate Jennifer and Marc’s wedding and the couple is said to be worried about this.
