JLo's sex tape woes
Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!
Jennifer Lopez has launched a legal battle to prevent the release of sex videos taped by ex-husband showing her ''flashing''.
The singer has taken Ojai Noa and his agent Ed Meyer to court to stop their reported attempt to sell and market videos made during the couple's 11-month marriage in 1997.
In the videos, she is seen flashing her private parts and displaying other ''deviant behaviour'', according to documents filed in the singer's legal fight to keep the tapes secret.
'This is among other nudity on her part in the now 21 hours of home movies that we have so far recovered,' the Daily Mail quoted Meyer as saying in the papers.
Ojani is continually finding more and more home videos with Lopez that he didn''t remember he had, Meyer added.
Although the tapes do not contain full sex scenes they could be of great embarrassment to the star who is married to Mark Anthony and has two-year-old twins Max and Emme.
'However, Noa & Meyer have never ever intended to market this and the many other racy, damaging & expositive scenes from the Home Videos,' the court filing said.
'It must also be stated that in Noa''s Home Videos, Lopez gives her full consent to Noa taping her,' the documents added.
But Lopez is not agreeing to these tapes being made public saying they are private and personal, claiming that Noa and filmmaker Meyer are violating an injunction which blocks the release of the videos.

Britney to sue over domestic violence reports
Britney Spears is set to take legal action over reports that her boyfriend had viciously beaten her, according to the star's management.
Star magazine first claimed that the troubled pop star had been abused by Jason Trawick, alleging he had given the singer a black eye and that he had cheated on her with a teenager.
Now Radar Online has posted phone recordings where a woman -- reportedly Spears -- claims that Trawick had "beat on me."
The conversation is purportedly with Jason Alexander, the man whose quickie marriage to Spears in 2004 lasted just 55 hours, reports News.com.au.
It was Alexander who told Star magazine the chart topper had confessed about being assaulted in a phone conversation between the pair.
Reports in America allege the singer made a heart-tugging appeal to Jason Alexander after confessing her life had turned into "a nightmare" because of constant beatings and abuse.
In a taped conversation with Jason, Britney on Thursday, claimed Jason Trawick had beaten her many times and once she had suffered a black eye.
On the tape released onto the internet by a magazine, Jason, is allegedly heard talking to a woman, claimed to be Britney. At one point he asks her: "How's your problems with your fiance?"
"Britney" answers: "That [bleep] is not my fiance."
However, a spokesman for both Britney and Trawick denied the story.

Wesley Snipes ordered to begin 3-yr prison term for tax evasion
Actor Wesley Snipes has been ordered to begin serving a three-year jail term for tax evasion.
He has been asked to surrender at a federal prison in the US state of Pennsylvania.
The Blade star was asked to report to a prison in Lewis Run on December 9, reports the BBC.
Snipes was convicted in 2008 for failing to file tax returns.
The 48-year-old actor had last week asked a judge to let him remain free on bail while he appeals to the US Supreme Court to overturn his conviction.
Snipes appealed to a court in Atlanta in the US state of Georgia after being found guilty by a jury in Florida. But the court upheld the conviction and sentence.
At the time of his conviction in April 2008, prosecutors said Snipes had earned more than 37million dollars in gross income between 1999 and 2004, but had not filed tax returns or paid any federal taxes.

Katie Price banned from driving
Former glamour model Katie Price has been handed a six month driving ban after she was spotted speeding at 83mph in her Land Rover.
Price, formerly known as Jordan, was fined 1,000 pounds and given three penalty points after she admitted breaking a 70mph limit on the A23 in Pyecombe, West Sussex, on December 10 last year.
This took her over the 12-point limit and brought an automatic six-month driving ban, which will leave her family life in chaos.
Crawley Magistrates' Court, Deputy District Judge Ken Goldspring read her the penalty.
'That makes her a 'totter'. She's received 12 or more points and so as of today she is banned from driving for six months,' the Daily Mail quoted the judge as saying.
It means the mother-of-three, who lives in Woldingham, Surrey, will not be allowed to drive her children Harvey, eight, Junior, five, and Princess, three, to school.
Defending 32-year-old Katie, lawyer Robin Sellers said she had been trying to escape paparazzi photographers when she was caught on a mobile speed camera in a police car.
However, Judge Goldspring said that she has a history of over speeding and "The paparazzi weren't prosecuted for speeding. That's the real story."
A statement produced by Sellers on behalf of Price read, "Katie accepts that whilst attempting to distance herself from paparazzi who were pursuing her (and about whose actions she had just notified the police) she was guilty of speeding.
