Jennifer Lopez is suing her former driver for $20million, according to new reports. The singer claims in a countersuit against Hakob Manoukian he attempted to extort her for $2.8million after he was forced to resign late last year.

Lopez claims Manoukian threatened to blackmail her by revealing ‘sensitive and personal’ information he had obtained about the star while on the job.

The documents, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, content Manoukian was released from his role as head of security and Lopez’ personal driver, and that shortly thereafter, on October 3, 2011, his former attorney ‘made written and oral demands that unless Manoukian was paid $2.8M, he would disclose sensitive and personal information that he had allegedly heard while driving Ms. Lopez.’

The demands were in violation of Manoukian’s confidentiality agreement, in which he was barred from disclosing information about his employer, according to the documents.

Lopez alleged Manoukian engaged in extortion, attempted extortion, breach of oral contract and breach of written contract in the suit.

She asks for damages ‘in no event less than $20,000,000!
