Stripper Threatens to Sue Jennifer Lopez for Defamation of Character


About six years ago, Samantha Barbash was busy scamming wall street, and now that that phase of her life is over, Jennifer Lopez has become her next target.

Jennifer Lopez recently posted a picture of herself on her Instagram account. In the photo, she was posing in a pink bathing suit as a promotion for her new movie titled Hustlers. The hustlers’ film is about a group of strippers who focuses on scamming rich men and taking all their cash.

The film is based on a true story, and it turns out that Samantha Barbash was the ringleader of the whole scam operation. The character Jennifer Lopez plays in the movie is based on Samantha Babash who got a 5-year probation for the scams she was involved in. However, because Samantha was responsible for the entire process of the crimes, she assumes that she has a right to the film and she is requesting to be given a part of the earnings of the movie.

In an interview with New York Post, Barbash revealed that she has plans of sueing Jennifer Lopez because the film does not portray her well. In Barbash’s words “We’re putting a stop to it because she’s actually misrepresenting me. I was never a stripper. It’s defamation of character.”

Barbash was the leader of her gang who specialised in stealing credit cards and cash from their clients after they had drugged them. The primary target of the Gang was married men, because they were guilty of cheating on their wives and will not be bold enough to confess what had happened to their money.

Barbash who appears to be very angry with the entire situation told New York Post during the interview that ‘’It’s my story she’s making money off of. If she wants to play me, then she should have gotten the real story.”

What is Jenny from the block going to do about this? We’ll just have to find out.
