Jennifer Lopez Faces $40 Million Lawsuit over Cancelled Gig

Filed under : Celebrity News

Sometimes you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, aren’t you? Jennifer Lopez recently pulled out of a controversial show in which she was set to appear, in Cyprus. Now she faces being sued for a reported $40 million.

The show was to mark the opening of a new hotel complex, Cratos Premium, in the northern Turkish Cypriot area of the popular vacation resort. The problem is – July 24 2010 – the date of this ill time celebration, is also the 36th anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, and that act still remains deeply divisive on the island.

Ms. Lopez’s decision to appear in the show was slammed by officials at the Cyprus Action Network of America, and a massive Internet campaign subsequently led her to withdraw from the concert.

However, this could be a very expensive decision. The chief executive of the hotel’s Turkish management company has threatened to claim up to $40 million in damages from Ms. Lopez for breach of contract.
“The cancellation… is not covered by any clause in the contract she signed with us,” he said.

Her cancellation follows intense outrage for accepting an invitation to open the new hotel on the anniversary of the island’s 1974 Turkish invasion. The date also coincides with J.Lo’s 41st birthday so it looks like this is set to be a not so happy birthday for her. Ms. Lopez is the richest woman of Latin American descent in Hollywood, according to Forbes’ list, she is said to have a net worth of $110million. Still, it’s a huge chunk of cash.

So, what do you think? Was the hotel opening ceremony ill timed? Was Jennifer Lopez right to pull out? Should there be a lawsuit against her?

    The invasion of Cyprus happened on 20th of July 1974. Jennifer birthday is on the 24th of July. ‘Northen’ Cyprus is occupied since then, and a pseudo-state. No country in the world recognises it except Turkey. Turkey is trying to get some recognition by using famous artists and trying to promote that everything is ok in the occupied part and that is indeed a state.

    Let’s start with the name of the hotel which is ‘Cratos’. Ironically cratos means state in Greek. On every anniversary of the invasion Turkish celebrate their ‘victory’and’state’and on the other hand Greek Cypriots mourn as that day was the last day of their freedom on the other side. Turkish official even admitted how this would promote occupied Cyprus as the perfect tourist destination and help them get recognition.

    Jennifer was invited to attend the opening of the hotel on the 20th and later in the week celebrate her birthday.

    Jennifer HAD to cancel not only because it was the morally right thing to do but also to stay within the law! Because by going there she would be entering an ILLEGAL area from the ILLEGAL airport and celebrate an ILLEGAL invasion at an ILLEGAL hotel since the legal owner of the hotel is a Greek Cypriot refugee.

    When I say illegal, I don’t mean it is only consider illegal in Cyprus but internationally. Therefore she made the right decision and they have no case for the above reasons. They need to stop blackmailing her.
