LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles judge on Monday issued a temporary order barring the first husband of Jennifer Lopez from distributing intimate home videos of the couple as part of an upcoming movie.
Los Angeles Superior Court judge James Chalfant's temporary order was issued ahead of a full hearing on the matter scheduled for Tuesday.
According to court papers filed on behalf of Lopez on Friday, the singer-actress's ex-husband Ojani Noa is attempting to find a buyer for a film which includes steamy home video of the couple's honeymoon.
Lopez is claiming breach of contract and seeking 10 million dollars in damages over Noa's attempts to sell the film. Film-maker Ed Meyer is also named in the suit, records show.
The case is the second lawsuit filed by Lopez, 40, against Noa, who she married in 1997 and divorced 11 months later.
In the first case Lopez successfully sued to prevent publication of a tell-all book Noa was writing about the couple.
Lopez was eventually awarded 545,000 dollars by an arbitrator for breach of contract. Lopez said Noa had signed an agreement before their wedding agreeing not to publish details of their relationship.
Lopez's second husband was choreographer Cris Judd, whom she married in September 2001 and divorced less than nine months later. Lopez and singer Marc Anthony were married in June 2004 and are the parents of twins.
