A former personal driver for Jennifer Lopez is suing the actress/singer, TMZ reports.
The news outlet grabbed a copy of the lawsuit, which says that the driver, Hakob Manoukian, started driving for Lopez and her then-husband Marc Anthony in 2005. With some prodding, he was convinced to shut down his company. To the tune of $200,000 a year, he became their Head of Security and Transportation.
But things hit a snag last year, when Lopez began filming "What to Expect When You're Expecting," because Hakob then had to spend time with her manager Benny Medina. According to the lawsuit, Medina wasn't so kind to the Iraqi-born Hakob.
He alleges that Medina hated him from the very beginning, that he'd get on him for how he dressed, and said "he could not speak English well enough." Medina allegedly got Lopez to demote Hakob, which made him essentially just her "Los Angeles driver." He claims all of this forced him to resign.
Medina is calling BS on that, though. He says Hakob, who is suing for unspecified damages, was "disgruntled employee who chose to quit."
