Jesse McCartney apologizes for Jennifer Lopez pregnancy rumor

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Jesse McCartney apologizes to Jennifer LopezPop star Jesse McCartney has apologized for accidentally claiming that Jennifer Lopez is pregnant.

The singer was being interviewed about his new album by a radio station in Atlanta but the conversation turned to his girlfriend Katie Cassidy’s role in the big-screen adaptation of Dallas.

The interviewer asked if Jesse knew why Jennifer Lopez, who was to play Sue Ellen in the film, had been dropped from the project and Jesse replied: “She didn’t get fired. She’s pregnant.”

The interviewer Vikki Locke later revealed: “It quickly became ‘Can we just talk about the record?’ And afterwards he just asked his minder ‘Was I not supposed to say anything?’”

But now Jesse has admitted he was just passing on hearsay anyway. He told TMZ: “I have no first hand knowledge whether Jennifer Lopez is pregnant or not. I thought I had read it somewhere. I apologize.”

Jennifer Lopez’s apparent pregnancy has been making headlines for months. J.Lo’s spokesperson has said that the her client is “100 per cent not pregnant”.

“His girlfriend has never even met Jennifer,” the source said to US Weekly. “She just got cast in the movie after Jennifer was already out. Jennifer is shooting the cover of a high fashion magazine. Do you think she could wear couture if she was pregnant?”

John Travolta has Jennifer Lopez kicked off Dallas movieAn insider on the movie set says John Travolta is the real reason behind Jennifer Lopez’s sudden departure from the movie version of Dallas.

Previous reports originating from around the Lopez camp had suggested the film’s script wasn’t up to scratch. However, a set insider told the Daily Mail: “From the moment Jennifer’s name was attached, Travolta went ballistic.”

“It’s been said that Jennifer didn’t like the script, but the truth is John doesn’t rate her as an actress and quite simply felt she was not up to part of Sue Ellen.”

Attorneys Seek Arbitration in Lopez/Noa Case

Thursday, August 17th, 2006

Jennifer Lopez and Ojani Noa at a film premiere in 1997A dispute between Jennifer Lopez and her ex-husband Ojani Noa over his proposed tell-all book about their relationship does not need to go to court, their attorneys said Wednesday.

The attorneys told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Victor H. Person that the issues between the 38-year-old singer-actress and Noa could be settled through arbitration. Another pretrial hearing was set for Oct. 17.

Jennifer Lopez filed the lawsuit April 10 and obtained a temporary restraining order barring Noa from publishing intimate details of her sex life. On June 30, she and Noa agreed to have the order extended as a preliminary injunction.

Jennifer Lopez was not present at Wednesday’s hearing, but will have to attend if the judge orders a mandatory settlement conference. Her lawyer, Kristina L. Brittenham, declined to comment. Noa’s attorney, Robert Vasquez, also declined to talk about the case.

Jennifer Lopez married Ojani Noa in February 1997 after meeting him in a Miami restaurant. They divorced 11 months later. Last October, Noa and Lopez settled a lawsuit he brought against her, alleging he was illegally fired as manager of her Los Angeles area restaurant, Madre’s. In exchange for a $125,000 payment from Lopez, Noa agreed not to disparage her or make money off disclosure of his relationship with her, according to her court papers.

On Jan. 19, he wrote a letter to Lopez’s attorneys saying he would continue to market his book, reportedly titled, “The Unknown Truth: A Passionate Portrait of a Serial Thriller,” unless Lopez paid him $5 million, according to court papers.
