Rumors About Jennifer Lopez That Turned Out To Be True
The stars who burn brightest have to deal with the worst false celebrity gossip, as Jennifer Lopez has discovered throughout her long career in the entertainment industry. The former Fly Girl went from dancing behind Janet Jackson in her "That’s the Way Loves Goes" music video to taking center stage in the 1997 biopic "Selena." She then set out to conquer the rom-com and pop music realms and did it simultaneously. While her 2001 movie "The Wedding Planner" topped the box office, her sophomore album, "J.Lo," peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Lopez’s ambition and drive earned her a great deal of wealth and success, and with this, came the predictable diva label — as well as gossip concerning her absurd demands. "There was this rumor that I needed white flowers and white linens wherever I went: ‘Everything has to be white or she won’t go in the room!’ That’s not true," Lopez told InStyle in 2009. She’s also addressed speculation that her butt is insured for an exorbitant sum. When Marie Claire asked her about the rumor in 2010, she let it slip that she closely follows what the gossip mags say about her. "No! Though I thought that story was funny. In fact, we traced that story, and that was a rumor that started in London," she said.
But don’t be fooled by the inaccurate tabloid talk — sometimes, there are kernels of truth to be got in the rumors about Jenny from the Block.
