And her production staff was robbed...
FOX News reports that Jennifer Lopez had items belonging to her production staff stolen not long after she left a hospital.
Lopez was in the country on her "Dance Again" tour. There had been reports that Lopez's personal items were stolen, but her team said that "items stolen last night at the venue were not Jennifer's." They said that they "were items that belong to production personnel" and that the incident occurred due to "lack of security by the promoter and venue." The stolen items included a computer, a camera and a bag with personal documents like IDs and passports.
There are also rumors (from Argentinian site Primacias) that Lopez's manager Benny Medina was robbed and has not been able to leave the country after losing all forms of ID. But her representatives said: "Benny Medina's passport was NOT stolen. Benny is in Sao Paulo as well as all of the travel party. The passport stolen was that of a production person who is already in Sao Paulo as well."
Just before the robbery, Lopez went to the hospital, complaining of back pain. She interrupted her sound stage check to go to get her problem treated, which said said her children had something to do with. She went on Twitter and wrote: "Got an xray this morning...all good...pulled back muscle. Coconuts getting to big to carry both at once. Awww... #timeflies :( "
Photos were taken at the time showing her boyfriend Casper Smart with her, holding her hand. There is also a bodyguard shielding her from the press. However, Lopez did not cancel who two-hour concert, going on to perform songs like "Get Right," "Let's Get Loud," "Waiting for Tonight" and "Jenny From the Block," as well as new singles "Dance Again" and "On the Floor". The show had an attendance of 18,000.
Her representative said: "She went to get an x-ray, everything is fine and performed to a sold-out audience last night. The show was never in jeopardy of being cancelled."
Lopez told Primacias: "I am so happy to be here. You know being here brings back memories. The train here takes me back to my childhood in the Bronx. My house was very close to the train and I used to see it pass by. My first album is called âOn The Six' in reference to the station."
