It’s Her Party! Jennifer Lopez in Talks for Super Bowl Halftime Show

It’s Her Party! Jennifer Lopez in Talks for Super Bowl Halftime Show Let’s get loud! Jennifer Lopez is in talks to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl LIV, multiple sources tell Us Weekly exclusively. Super Bowl Halftime Performers Through the Years Fans have been campaigning for J. Lo, 50, to take the NFL stage for years — and the February 2020 championship game in Miami would be an ideal time to do it. She and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, have close ties to the city, where the former New York Yankee grew up and the couple often vacation together. “Yeah, [I’ve] thought about the Super Bowl and it’s in Miami. It’s a big deal, but we’ll see,” Lopez teased to Entertainment Tonight in July. “They make their own decisions over there [at the NFL].

Love does cost a thing, apparently.

Jennifer Lopez is being sued for copyright infringement over a photo she posted to her Instagram Story in 2017. According to the court documents, filed by Splash News and Picture Agency and obtained by E! News, the picture in question showed the Hustlers star holding hands with Alex Rodriguez while out in New York City. In the docs, Splash News and Picture Agency states that they are the owner and exclusive copyright holder of the picture Lopez posted.

"Plaintiff never licensed the Photograph to defendant. Nevertheless, Lopez used it without authorization or permission from plaintiff to do so," the docs state. "Specifically, Lopez or someone acting on her behalf copied the Photograph and distributed it on Instagram, via the @jlo account, on a story posted November 7, 2017."

The company claims in the documents that Lopez was notified of her infringement "through her representatives," by a letter that's dated Dec. 12, 2017.

"The Photograph is creative, distinctive, and valuable," the company argues. "Because of the subject's celebrity status, and the Photograph's quality and visual appeal, plaintiff (and the photographer it represents) stood to gain revenue from licensing the Photograph."

"But defendant's unauthorized use harms the existing and future market for the original Photograph," the docs continue. "The Instagram post made the Photograph immediately available to Lopez's tens of millions followers and others, consumers of entertainment news—and especially news and images of Lopez herself, as evidenced by their status as followers of her—who would otherwise be interested in viewing licensed versions of the Photograph in the magazines and newspapers that are plaintiff's customers."

This is only the latest case of celebs being sued over a copyright infringement claim. It was just last month that Gigi Hadid was sued over a photo she previously posted to her Instagram Story of her ex, Zayn Malik.
