Jennifer Lopez Cancels Show in Turkish-occupied Cyprus

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 10, 2010

Jennifer Lopez has officially “withdrawn” from a concert in a European territory currently under military occupation — claiming she never would have agreed to perform had she known the “relevant circumstances” surrounding the intense political situation.

Lopez was scheduled to perform in Turkish-occupied Northern Cyprus … an area that neither the United Nations nor the European Union recognize as an independent sovereign state … because of the way it was illegally occupied by the Turkish military in 1974.

In fact, multiple Greek and Cypriot politicians expressed anger after reports surfaced claiming Lopez had agreed to perform at a swanky hotel in Northern Cyprus on July 24.

But a rep for Lopez tells TMZ, “Jennifer Lopez would never knowingly support any state, country, institution or regime that was associated with any form of human rights abuse.”

The rep added, “After a full review of the relevant circumstances in Cyprus, it was the decision of management to withdraw from the appearance. This was a team decision that reflects our sensitivity to the political realities of the region.”

    Jennifer Lopez still maintains her good curved figure. She is an amazing woman. She is beautiful and sexy. I wish I can see her in person

  3. To me Jennifer Lopez is the best performer ever. She still looks so gorgeous and hot. She is famous because she is a Latino and there are only few of them this generation.

  4. American Idol audition has started and I saw photos of the judges including Jennifer Lopez. She is my idol and my favorite performer. I look forward to seeing the next competition.
