Jennifer Lopez Reportedly Sued For 'Breach Of Public Decency'

(Radio.com) Jennifer Lopez may think she's just Jenny from the block, but that's enough to get Morocco's panties in a twist. On May 29, J.Lo performed in the North African country at the Mawazine Festival in Rabat, Morocco, which was broadcast with a short delay on public TV. But according to the BBC, now Moroccan politicians are deeming the performance too sexy and looking to sue Lopez for "a breach of public decency."

The performance also has the country criticizing its Minister of Communication Mustapha Khalfi for allowing the gig to air on public television, even calling for his resignation, something he has already rejected, according to local papers.

Khalfi has tweeted about the performance, writing, "What was broadcast is unacceptable and goes against broadcasting law" and he will look into the ethics code of the channel it was broadcast on.

It's been reported that an education group has filed a lawsuit that states Lopez "disturbed public order and tarnished women's honor and respect" with her fly girl dance moves and tight costumes. The Moroccan press has already had some things to say about Lopez's "suggestive poses" and talked about how she was "scantily" dressed. Read more here.
