IPL is infamous for controversies. We have seen various controversies in IPL. IPL6 is about to begin but controversies have already started taking birth.
Since there is so much money and publicity involved, controversies are a part and parcel of IPL.A recent controversy over cancellation of Jennifer Lopez’s live performance at the IPL6 opening ceremony has emerged.
Singer Jennifer Lopez blamed camp Shah Rukh for spreading rumours against her and tarnishing her image regarding her live performance cancellation at IPL 6 opening ceremony.
Jennifer Lopez was going to perform at IPL opening ceremony but the deal was cancelled at the last moment.
According to rumours JLo was putting unnecessary demands from organisers. JLo’s team is suspecting Red Chillies for planting fabricated stories against JLo.
A leading publication quoted a source as saying, “JLo is breathing fire. Her team has shot off a mail saying the details of the deal were known only to a select few officials in both teams. As it is unlikely that JLo’s team would plant a story against her, the needle of suspicion is pointing towards camp Shah Rukh. JLo’s team is very upset that her image has been tarnished.”
Red Chillies spokesperson clarified, “We are very excited about the opening ceremony of IPL Season 6. In the process of collaborating with different artistes to perform, from national and international platforms, we did consider Jennifer Lopez. Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, it didn’t work out. We hope to work with her in future. We are excited about working with Pitbull.”
“It is true Jennifer cancelled the gig at the last moment because she didn’t like the deal. That she asked for a private chartered plane is however not true. Yes, she had asked for exclusive arrangements to be made for her nearly 44 dancers and accompanying staff, which included her entourage of around 20 people. She had asked for a personal chef, stylist, butler, security etc. but these are demands that even Bollywood stars make when they perform abroad. Jennifer is extremely upset with the way things have panned out. There is an exchange of mails going on as we speak,” the source said.
Shah Rukh Khan is famous for his business acumen and creating controversies.
Last Year Shah Rukh Khan was banned from Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for five years “for misbehaving with MCA officials and violating rules.”
It seems he knows very well how to capitalise on controversies
