Jennifer Lopez sued over performance during Morocco TV concert
A Moroccan education group is reportedly suing Jennifer Lopez over her recent concert in the conservative north African nation, UPI reports.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit claims that the 45-year-old singer’s racy dance moves and costumes “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honor and respect.”
Lopez performed for 160,000 people at the Mawazine Festival in Rabat on May 29, though the gossip site said that concert differed little from Lopez’s stage shows in the United States and elsewhere.
Lopez’s appearance generated widespread criticism after it was broadcast on public television, with Morocco’s Justice and Development Party calling the show a “breach of public decency.”
The Moroccan minister of communication has refused calls for him to resign over the incident but promised to discuss it with the television station’s ethics committee.
