Ed Meyer, Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, Ojani Noa`s business manager, told us he was ready to call Combs as a witness in court proceedings and quiz him on the possible existence of an alleged sex tape of the pair, who dated for over two years until 2001.
Meyer also said he intended to put J.Lo on the witness stand and ask her about her sexuality since she was allegedly seen kissing a woman in another video filmed more than a decade ago.
The move is part of a legal battle over Noa’s attempt to release a video he shot of J.Lo when they were married for a year in 1997. J.Lo’s lawyers have gotten an injunction blocking the release on the basis that the video is private and personal. Meyer insists the footage is not overtly sexual, containing nothing more than images of the star kissing a woman and performing a lap dance.
Meyer told Page Six, “Ojani’s footage is not a sex tape. In addition to kissing women, there are points where she’s lap dancing Ojani [and others]. All with her clothes on. We’re trying to establish that it’s not a sex tape and therefore usable in Ojani’s movie.”
Meyer says he wants to call Combs to attempt to illustrate any differences between videos he and Lopez may have made and the one Noa possesses. Meyer said, “We will ask: Is there a sex tape between [him] and Lopez, and what does it involve?”
There is no proof the rumored J.Lo and Puffy sex tape exists.
Jay Lavely, Lopez’s lawyer, said, “Ed Meyer’s comments are false and ridiculous. Ms. Lopez will be completely vindicated on her claims in this matter.”
On Friday, Lopez lost a motion to have the case with Noa settled in arbitration, and another court date was scheduled for March 4.
