The 'On The Floor' star has reportedly filed a lawsuit against one of her former employers for damages caused.

Jennifer Lopez is apparently suing her former chauffeur for damages of $20 million after he threatened to release "disruptive and potentially damaging" information on the singer, according to E! News.

The 'I'm Into You' star was apparently held ransom for $2.8 million by Hakob Manoukian's attorney back in April claiming that J-Lo, her manager Benny Medina and former husband Marc Anthony failed to pay Manoukian his agreed salary and treated him poorly during his employment.

The 'Goin' In' star's new suit reports that Manoukian signed a confidentiality agreement prohibiting him from divulging any personal information on the singer and is a countersuit of the original one filed.

The former American Idol judge also reportedly claimed her driver became "hostile and angry" towards her manager over a security disagreement and abruptly left his position – which is when the threats first began.

The star was also recently forced to hit back at what she called "malicious" rumours concerning her new boyfriend Casper smart visiting a massage parlour.

The pair recently opened up on their relationship with the dancer admitting the way they got together was very "natural".
