Jennifer Lopez Denies She Got a Maid Fired Over an Autograph Request

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- There's been plenty of gossip about Jennifer Lopez over the years, but she took to Twitter on Tuesday to deny a very specific accusation: that she'd gotten a hotel maid fired because the woman dared to ask for her autograph.

The British paper The Daily Mail helped spread the claim by reprinting a story from the German tabloid Bild, which claimed that while J-Lo was staying at a hotel in Dusseldorf, Germany, a maid named Bete Dodaj knocked on her door to ask her for an autograph.  Two assistants turned the maid away, and the next day, she claims, she was fired because the star had complained about being "disturbed."

But Jennifer tweeted on Tuesday, "C'mon thought you knew me better than this... Would never get anyone fired over an autograph. 1st I heard of this was on twitter. #hurtful."

You may recall that Jennifer actually played a hotel maid in the movie Maid in Manhattan, so for all we know, she might treat maids better than other stars.

By the way, things ended up working out for the allegedly fired maid: Bild later reported that she had received two new job offers in one day.

Paparazzi Nab NJ Cops Failing to Ticket 'Jersey Shore’s' The Situation

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(BELMAR, N.J.) -- Most of the time the paparazzi are perceived as a nuisance, but pictures and video they captured of two New Jersey police officers failing to enforce the law so they could get Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s autograph has done some good.

E! Online reports that The Situation was cruising around Belmar, New Jersey Sunday night in his car with two girls sitting in a single front seat not wearing seatbelts.  The officers approached the Jersey Shore star and instead of pulling out their ticket books to write citations, they had The Situation autograph them -- all of which the paparazzi caught on camera.

Belmar Police Chief Thomas Palmisano has since ordered an investigation into the matter, and said the paparazzi video will be used for training so no celebrity will ever be put above the law again.
