A Mexican soap opera actress who is producing a movie on Jennifer Lopez's early life has sued the singer, claiming she has tried to thwart the project over fears that it would contain footage from unflattering home movies including some sex scenes.

Claudia Vasquez, business partner and former girlfriend of Lopez's ex-husband Ojani Noa, seeks $10 million in damages from Lopez for interfering with the production of the biopic, which has funding from NBC and Telemundo.

Lopez previously sued Noa for invasion of privacy last year when she discovered that he was making the movie and obtained an injunction prohibiting him from using the home movies. The singer has been pushing to resolve the case in arbitration in an effort to keep personal details from going public. Appeals on this issue have reportedly tied up production of the movie, tentatively titled 'The Escape.'
