Arrest in J.Lo and Anthony extortion scandal

A convicted murderer was arrested yesterday for attempting to extort GBP550,000 ($1 million US) from celebrity couple Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez in exchange for their 2004 wedding video.

Ex-con Tito Moses, 31, and Steven Wortman, 40, were arrested in New York City on Tuesday, following weeks of negotiation with the Latin star’s lawyers.

Major Case Squad Inspector Michael Hines tells the New York Post, “They were shocked because they thought they were coming for their payday – and instead, they got the surprise of their lives.”

The video of the couple’s June 2004 marriage ceremony was on Anthony’s laptop computer, which was stolen along with the singer’s Cadillac, in New Jersey on 30 October.

Earlier this month, US TV show Access Hollywood received a phone call from Moses, offering the video in exchange for a high price.
