Whatever you do, don't cross Jennifer Lopez. The former American Idol judge is taking things up a notch (by which we mean a lawsuit) with a former chauffeur.

Here's why: Hakob Manoukian allegedly threatened to spill "disruptive and potentially damanaging" information about J.Lo unless she coughed up $2.8 million! As reported by E! News, she is now suing him for extortion and defamation, and seeks at least $20 million in damages.

As per the lawsuit, he originally signed a confidentiality agreement forbidding him from revealing anything he heard in relation to the star or her family. Her lawsuit denies his allegations that she didn't pay him the full salary they had agreed upon and that her manager, Benny Medina, treated Hakob poorly.

J.Lo acknowledges the driver and her manager did indeed have a falling out last summer regarding the security team Benny wanted to hire. At that point, she maintains the driver got "hostile and angry" and "plotted to retaliate" against them.

In addition, the lawsuit states Hakob "abruptly terminated his employment with Ms. Lopez and began to threaten her." For "irreparable injury," J.Lo seeks $20 million in damages in addition to unspecified exemplary and punitive damages, injunctive relief preventing Hakob from further harassing her, and court costs.
