Phew! Drama! Some people just forget their place sometimes!
On Tuesday night, Jennifer Lopez attended a star-studded gala in New York alongside her husband, sister and manager, Benny Medina. The benefit, Samsung's Hope for Children Gala in honor of Bill Clinton, was supposed to be an elegant evening, filled with good will and generous donations. However, when J.Lo arrived on the red carpet, her manager was spewing nothing but malice as he got into a heated argument with their limo driver!
Apparently, Benny was "furious" over some of the details of the evening and took out his anger on the driver. When the car pulled up, sources overheard the driver ranting, "Nobody speaks to me like that. I don't care who he [Medina] is. Get his stuff out of the car, I am leaving." With the driver gone, Benny then became "difficult" for the event staff, who at first glance had no idea who he was and insisted he identify himself before meeting President Clinton. As you can imagine, Benny took the snub in stride - and by that we mean he caused yet another scene by yelling at the staff! THEN, (yeah, he's not done) when freebie bags were being handed out, he demanded he be given FIVE more! No, not for J.Lo or Marc - for himself!
Wow! This guy's got some nerve! Maybe it's time you step in and do a little managing yourself, Jennifer. See if you can't get your man to cool it with the ego a bit! Damn!
