Jennifer Lopez can't sue former driver for $20 million




Jennifer Lopez will not be able to intimidate her way out of her most recent legal battle: her $20 million extortion lawsuit against a former driver has been tossed after a judge decided she was just trying to scare the guy out of suing her.If only ex-husband Marc Anthony had that guy's lawyer.

Ex-chauffeur Hakob Manoukian filed a $2.8 million suit against J. Lo awhile back claiming he was forced to quit after her manager Benny Medina humiliated him in public. She responded in August by filing this lawsuit against him, claiming Manoukian was unfairly demanding $2.8 million, or else he'd give the gossip media a laundry list of embarrassing information he'd heard while driving her from place to place.

Manoukian's attorney successfully argued Lopez was only trying to get back at him for filing the suit, TMZ reports. The driver's lawsuit is still pending, so there's still a chance we'll get to hear all those stories, anyway.
