Jennifer Lopez is facing a huge embarrassment as intimate home video of the singer with her ex-husband, Ojani Noa, may be released.
Lopez has been battling Noa in court for years to prevent release of the footage, which was taken during their short lived marriage.
While Noa cannot release the footage, court documents, exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, reveal that someone else can publish it.
A Los Angeles judge issued a ruling Friday morning that allows someone other than Noa or someone acting on his behalf to release the footage JLo doesn’t want the public to see. The court has not yet decided whether Claudia Vasquez is acting on Noa’s behalf.
The written ruling states: “Vazquez argues she has and is suffering harm in that she has had difficulty in obtaining work as a result of Lopez’s attempts at enforcing the Injunction against her.
“Vazquez argues that Lopez, on the other hand, will suffer no harm if Vazquez’s preliminary injunction is granted. Lopez puts forth no arguments contradicting those of Vazquez and, in fact, fails to address this element of the preliminary injunction test altogether. As a result, the Court finds that the balance of the equities weighs in favor of Vazquez.
Lopez and Cuban-born Noa were married February 1997 and divorced in 1998. They met when Noa was working as a waiter in a Miami restaurant.
