Court bans release of Lopez's sex video

LONDON: Jennifer Lopez's supposed sex tape has been banned by a court judge

Jennifer Lopez can breathe a sigh of relief today.

Her ex has finally been banned by a court judge from releasing an "intimate" home video.

Jennifer's ex-husband of one year, Ojani Noa, hoped to release personal videos of the singer and actress.

But a judge has now officially blocked the move.

E! Online reports that Judge James Chalfant said: "They may not publish it for any reason.

"Anywhere, anytime, anyhow... without further court order. If they do, they go to jail."

The ruling is temporary but Jennifer's lawyer plans to make the ban permanent.

But why all the fuss?

According to her lawyer there's nothing too racy in the videos anyway.

He added: "It's private and personal, but it wasn't a sex tape.

"They are innocent and they have been misrepresented... to increase value and media attention."

Ojani, who divorced Jennifer in 1998, plans to appeal.

He denied he ever called it a sex tape and explained: "They're trying to stop me from making my documentary and I'm fighting for my rights.

"They're not being fair."

He added: "It's not about the money, it's about my life."
