Jennifer Lopez's Supposed Career Secret: Santeria
Next time you come across a dead chicken who seems to have meet its ends in a Santeria ritual, please remember that chicken may have died for the sake of Jennifer Lopez's career.
Yes, there's a crazy rumor being floated that Jennifer has a godmother in Miami who harnesses the dark power of Santeria to benefit's J.Lo's career and personal life. Of course, the source of this rumor is Claudia Vazques, who just so happens to be dating Lopez's first husband Ojani Noa (who just so happens to be threatening to release a damaging personal tape of Lopez).
Guanabee caught some snippet of a Spanish-language gossip show where Vazquez spreads her Santeria claims:
"I've been told she does the worse -- frightening stuff! Jennifer has a godmother in Miami, which I've never met but Ojani knows her, and she calls this woman to tell her 'do this to this person, put up a black candle, etc.' She's done 'amarres' [spells] on all her boyfriends. It's a typical thing for anybody involved in santeria. But, even with all that, she always ends up leaving them."
Vazquez also says that J.Lo also ordered the use of Santeria to nab the lead role in Selena over Salma Hayek.
Coincidentally, Vazquez, Noa, and Lopez are in a drawn out legal fight over a tape that contains Lopez in the nude supposedly shot during Noa and Lopez's relationship. Lopez has previously won court cases ruling that Noa can not release the footage. However, her lawyers now apparently believe that Vazquez is trying to release the tape on Noa's behalf.
