May 29 â€” Jennifer Lopez and her long-time publicist have parted ways, and a source says itâ€™s because heâ€™s been trying to get the star to tone down her diva ways.
The parting of ways between Lopez and Neirob comes only weeks long after Lopezâ€™s fiancÃ©, Ben Affleck, dropped his long-time publicist.
â€œALAN NEIROB [of Rogers and Cowan] has represented Jennifer like a lion at the gate,â€ says a source. â€œBut lately, heâ€™s been warning her about public backlash and trying to be a voice of reason. But Jennifer doesnâ€™t want anyone telling her to dial it back.â€
J. Lo has been criticized for her high-handed manner and her startling backstage demands. For example, when doing a cameo in a benefit video for victims of the 9/11 attack, Lopezâ€™s long list of demands included a 45-foot trailer equipped with a makeup and hairdressing station, a white dressing room equipped with a white couch, white curtains, a white table, white candles, and three kinds of flowers, including white roses. The long list of food requirements specified the temperature of the Evian; Lopez actually spent only 90 minutes recording.
The parting of ways between Lopez and Neirob comes only weeks long after Lopezâ€™s fiancÃ©, Ben Affleck, dropped his long-time publicist, which sources tell the Scoop was done at Lopezâ€™s behest.
Asked about differences in opinion with Lopez, Neirob replied, â€œI will just say we are no longer representing Jennifer Lopez.â€ Lopezâ€™s manager, Benny Medina, didnâ€™t return calls.
