Jennifer Lopez’s “sex” tape has been stolen by her ex-husband Ojani Noa’s lawyer Ed Meyer. Three days ago, Jennifer Lopez won a temporary court order against Claudia Vazquez who obtained control of the tape from Ojani. In an attempt to still release the tape, Ojani sold the tape to his girlfriend/business partner Claudia for a $1.
Ojani’s lawyer is eager to sell the tape stating that the bids have been in the hundreds of thousands and he will sell to the highest bidder – though he doesn’t represent Claudia Vazquez.
Ed took the data drive with the footage from Claudia’s home. Claudia’s lawyer sent Ed Meyer a letter demanding Ed to appear in court on Wednesday,
“Claudia Vazquez will bring an ex parte application for relief, or whatever is proper, against you for removing home video data drive from Claudia Vazquez’s home.”
“You were on notice of the order and using false pretences, you removed the drive from her house. You have been asked to return it by Claudia Vazquez, myself, and law enforcement authorities. Bring the drive with you to court. We intend to ask the Court to order you to hand the drive to Jennifer Lopez’s attorney’s immediately.”
After confirming he had the tape, Ed stated, “I’ll be in court this morning with the data drive… I’m going to ask that a retired judge be appointed by the court to keep the videos instead of Jay Lavely, Jennifer’s attorney.”
Late Wednesday evening, Ojani’s manager Ed Meyer handed over the data drive which contains the footage to be locked in a safe deposit box at the City National Bank in Century City, California to which Jennifer Lopez’s attorney Jay Lavely, will maintain possession of the key and although Ed was happy to part with the tapes he didn’t want to give them directly to Mr. Lavely.
He told reporters: “Now there is an evidentiary chain. Before they just wanted me to hand it over to Jay Lavely and he would just put it in a drawer. We went with a bank so people will be photographed coming in and out and there is no tampering.”
Before the tapes are locked up, Jennifer Lopez will be allowed to view the footage as will Ojani Noa and his current girlfriend Claudia Vazquez – who tried to sell it for profit.
Ed Meyer has claimed there are “about 15-20 minutes of total nudity between all the different clips among the 27 hours of footage” of Ojani and Jennifer – who divorced after less than a year of marriage in 1998.
