In WTH news for the day, Jennifer Lopez is being sued by a 53-year-old man named Rodrigo Ruiz, who claims that the “American Idol” judge led him on romantically and promised him big dreams of a career in the music business. According to Rodrigo, Jennifer sent him a letter of out the blue in 2008, requesting nude photos and his demo CD. He shared a portion of the letter with TMZ.
“I just wanted to let you know that I do remember you and that I am interested in you,” an excerpt of the letter alleged to be sent by J.Lo reads. “I have plans on leaving my husband. But I can’t say much right now so that’s it for now. Send me pictures of you both with clothes and without clothes.”
An excerpt from an additional letter reads:
“This is Jennifer Lopez writing to you again and just to let you know that I got your packages, music, and demos. And just to let you know you need to send me pictures of you with and without clothes.”
The last and final letter alleged to have been sent from Jennifer was even more odd than the first two.
“This is Jennifer Lopez and as you can tell its been a while since I last wrote and as you can see I have a new boyfriend which means your in for the long haul and you have to put up with the fact that I am f**king him and sucking his d**k.”
From letter one, most would’ve probably concluded that the letters were not from Jennifer; however, Mr. Ruiz apparently fell for the scam and now he’s suing Jennifer, claiming that he fell into a depression and had to seek professional help regarding the incident. Rodrigo also filed a police report claiming sexual harassment against the singer. It turns out that the owner of the P.O. box, which the letters came from, is owned by a 53-year-old Los Angeles woman.
J.Lo reps are confident that the case will be resolved soon.
“This is a small claims matter that appears to be a desperate attempt for notoriety,” a spokesperson told TMZ. “Ms Lopez has never seen or met the plaintiff, nor has she ever communicated with him. We believe this matter should be summarily dismissed.”
What a mess!
