Her love may not cost a thing, but Jennifer Lopez could face paying $40 million from a lawsuit over a canceled gig.
On July 24th, J.Lo was scheduled to play a show at the Cratos Premium hotel in northern Cyrus. But she changed her tune (get it?) with the performance when she learned the island was illegally occupied by Turkish military. Her rep said, "After a full review of the relevant circumstances in Cyprus, it was the decision of management to withdraw from the appearance."
The hotel isn't too happy over the cancellation. "â€œIf she does not show up for the concert, we will begin a procedure in the courts to claim $35 to $40 million in damages,â€ said Murat Bozoglu, a representative for the hotel.
I think it's great that Jennifer Lopez wants to stand her ground on her political views. However, it's not exactly breaking news that Cyprus was occupied by Turkish military. If something like this affects her decision to play in a certain location, perhaps she should have done her research ahead of time. It was a business deal and I can understand the hotel's lawsuit because it's going to lose out on a lot of money as a result of the cancellation. Jennifer Lopez already signed the contract -- the show must go on.
