Court documents reveal that singer and actress Jennifer Lopez has filed a lawsuit against one of her former drivers. The lawsuit is for $20 million and it claims that the driver requested $2.8 million from her or else he would divulge all of her secrets.

Lopez hired Manoukian in 2005. Manoukian is also in the midst of a battle with Benny Media, Lopez’s manager, about contractual differences.
