Jennifer Lopez ‘demands crew members and limo drivers make NO eye contact with her’ as more details about her behaviour emerge after she was branded a ‘deeply unpleasant person’

Jennifer Lopez has been hit with more claims of ‘diva behaviour’ as her career and personal life plunges further into turmoil. 

The 54-year-old pop star is grappling with a string of recent setbacks thanks to her freshly cancelled tour, rumoured marital woes with husband Ben Affleck and claims of ‘unpleasant’ behaviour.

Industry insiders claim Jennifer also has a bizarre ‘no eye contact rule’ while dealing with crew members or hired help. 

‘A friend of ours worked lighting backstage at one of her concerts. All of the workers were strictly instructed: DO. NOT.LOOK. AT. MS. LOPEZ. There’s to be NO. EYE. CONTACT,’ one online user alleged. 

Another user had a similar tale, claiming: ‘I knew people who worked at Mohegan Sun [a casino in the US] and they were instructed to totally avoid eye contact with J Diva.’ 

Industry insiders have alleged that Jennifer Lopez, 54, (pictured) ‘demands crew members and limo drives make NO eye contact with her’ 

‘They still laugh about her to this day because far bigger celebs have appeared there that have been far more gracious and friendly,’ they added.

Another claimed even limousine drivers have subjected to the same rule. 

‘Per my insider friend, her limo drivers were instructed the same, they couldn’t even look at her in their rear view mirrors,’ they alleged.

An American podcaster and TV industry veteran who goes by the stage name LABellatini also shared a story about Jennifer’s supposed ‘no eye contact rule’ in a TikTok video this week. 

‘I have a friend who worked audio on a JLo project, and she had him kicked out. Stopped the whole production and everything because he looked her in the eyes,’ she alleged.   

‘I have like 15 more stories like this,’ she added. 

Several users on X (formerly Twitter) have made similar allegations about Jennifer's on-set behaviour

Several users on X (formerly Twitter) have made similar allegations about Jennifer’s on-set behaviour. 

One claimed they used to work at a Californian ski resort where Jennifer was filming a commercial for a car company. 

‘We received a notice at the front desk at the resort that we were to make zero eye contact with her. Can you believe it!!??’ they wrote.

Someone else who claimed to have worked with Jennifer also said crew members were ‘warned’ before the songstress arrived that ‘under no circumstance’ were they to make eye contact with Jennifer- even if they were talking to her.

It comes after US media personality Meghan McCain branded Jennifer as a ‘deeply unpleasant person’ when she interviewed the Let’s Get Loud hitmaker on The View in 2019.

Meghan, 39, who served as a host on the daytime talk show from 2017 until 2021, slammed the Jenny From the Block songstress during a recent episode of her podcast, Citizen McCain.

She said Jennifer ‘needs to humble herself’ and claimed to have had a ‘not so nice’ experience with the hitmaker when she appeared on the series in the past.

Meghan made the shocking claims while chatting with her guest Carlos King, creator of the Love and Marriage franchise, amid the recent news that Jennifer had cancelled her upcoming tour.

‘I actually feel bad right now because I feel like [there’s] bullying happening to JLo and I don’t want to add to that,’ Meghan said.

‘But she just is a deeply unpleasant person. She had the biggest entourage I’ve ever seen of any celebrity. 

‘More than Kim Kardashian, more than the President. And I just don’t really understand why it was needed.’

When Carlos said he was surprised by her claims because he had good experiences with Jennifer, Meghan insisted, ‘JLo does not have a reputation for being a nice, normal person. I’m not exposing [anything].’

Meghan also branded Jennifer’s recent documentary as ‘not good’ and said her acting as of late ‘has not been great’ – but the TV personality insisted she was ‘not trying to be shady.’

‘She needs to humble herself a little bit because she’s getting [hate] all over the internet especially on TikTok,’ she continued.

‘There’s a lot of people, like real people, lower level people who work on shows, service workers, waitresses who have really negative stories about her. 

‘And again, I just know my experience. I was a host at The View and she was not nice. Whatever, you don’t always have to be nice it was just surprising given that people like Kim Kardashian couldn’t be more delightful. 

‘When you’re coming on a show for a 10-minute segment, just fake it until you make it for 10 minutes.’

Back in April, Meghan released an episode called Why is JLo Flopping So Badly?, during which she discussed the star’s career with her co-host Miranda.

She then posted part of their conversation to TikTok, where the video went viral, gaining more than two million views.

But in the latest episode, Meghan claimed that Jennifer ‘had her TikTok taken down’ due ‘bullying,’ but added that it’s now back up.

‘All I said was that she had a huge entourage and that she was not my favorite guest I’ve ever interviewed,’ Meghan reflected of the TikTok. ‘That’s like the direct quote and it was taken down for bullying.’ 

In the TikTok, Meghan branded Jennifer as a ‘PR mess’ and said she was ‘in her flop era.’

‘She came on The View many times as a guest, not my favorite,’ she added. ‘Let me tell you something, some of the biggest celebrities I have ever met in my life, I mean giant celebrities, have one publicist with them. 

‘Jennifer Lopez has more people traveling with her than the President. Or as many [as him]. I’m not kidding. 

‘I’m gonna get in trouble for this but my big memory of JLo is, there was a person whose entire job was to hold up a mirror with lights while they were touching her up backstage. 

‘I remember being like, “That poor man. What a weird job. He probably went to art school and had dreams of being a musician and now he holds JLo’s [mirror]”.’
