Jennifer Lopez, via her lawyers, has sent a cease and desist letter to producers of How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The J-Lo and Ojani Noa Story, a movie chronicling her marriage to Cuban model/waiter Ojani Noa.

According to TheWrap.com, attorneys for Lopez cited a 2007 court order injunction against writing about Lopez's personal life that was issued to Noa, her first husband, when he was preparing a tell-all book about the multi-talented diva in 2006.

Noa and producer Ed Meyer have countered, saying the movie, which begins shooting in February, is "100% parody."

Lopez was married to Noa from Feb. 1997 until Jan. 1998; he has long accused his ex of cheating on him and not giving him a fair divorce settlement.

"The whole movie is about me coming to this country and getting my dream shut down by somebody who I thought was a good person," Noa, who likened the film's plot to Borat, told TheWrap.com. "I was in totally in love with her. I gave my soul to her. It wasn't my fault she shared it with 3 people. I was angry."
