J. Lo is probably saying “uh oh.” Jennifer Lopez, who always seems to be involved in some sort of a lawsuit or trouble with the help, just got one of her own dismissed.

Lopez was involved with legal drama with a former driver, Hakob Manoukian. Initially, Manoukian sued Lopez after he was fired from carting her around. He claimed that Lopez’s manager, Benny Medina, berated him in public and pretty much forced his resignation.

In response, La Lopez countersued Manoukian, claiming that he was trying to control her entire security detail and was “drunk with power.” When Lopez pretty much sent Manoukian packing, she says he threatened to leak confidential information about the star to the public and have criminal charges filed against her. Say what?! What’s more, Lopez claimed that Manoukian demanded $2.8 million in hush money. For her troubles, J to the L-O sued for the not-so-low amount of $20 million.

Now, a judge is basically calling BS on Lopez’s extortion suit, per TMZ. Manoukian’s attorney filed a motion to dismiss Lopez’s extortion claim, saying that Lopez was pretty much just trying to punish Manoukian for filing a legitimate claim against her. The judge concurred with Manoukian’s legal team and put the kibosh on her lawsuit. Manoukian’s own original lawsuit is still pending.
