India Snubs Jennifer Lopez: Cricket Organisers Drop J-Lo after 'Diva-Like' Demands

Plans to bring Hollywood actress and singer Jennifer Lopez to perform at the opening ceremony of Indian Premier League (IPL; a professional Twenty20 cricket championship in India) have reportedly been cancelled because the 43-year-old star's camp made "unreasonable demands".

The Mail believes the diva's manager, Benny Medina, demanded a private plane and also that hotel expenses during her stay in the country be funded by the organisers. In addition, they were also asked to pay for personal stylists and a chef. The New York Post confirms the organisers have roped in rapper Pitbull as a last-minute replacement.

"She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was an idiotic move because the audience for this event is huge. It's like the Super Bowl halftime show," a source told the NY Post
