LOS ANGELES — Sex tape releases have become a dime a dozen in recent months, but Monday’s revelation involving an A-list Hollywood celebrity is raising eyebrows.

Jennifer Lopez, in a suit filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, won a court order Monday barring ex-husband Ojani Noa from making their sex life public — at least for a day.

Judge James C. Chalfant issued a temporary injunction blocking Noa from shopping a videotape that includes sexual situations, including those on she and her ex-husband’s honeymoon.

The order is in effect until a hearing on whether to extend it is completed. That hearing was scheduled to resume Tuesday.

Lopez is attempting to put a halt to ex-husband Ojani Noa’s efforts of shopping a videotape that includes sexual situations, including those on she and her ex-husband’s honeymoon.

Lopez claims Noa and filmmaker Ed Meyer are "producing and marketing for sale a feature film titled 'How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The JLo and Ojani Noa Story' ... which they describe as the 'story of Jennifer Lopez's tumultuous first marriage to Cuban immigrant, chef and model Ojani Noa.'"

The video, according to the suit, contains footage showing Lopez "in revealing lack of clothing, and in sexual situations, especially in the hotel room footage from ... [their] honeymoon."

Meyer, according to the suit, allegedly claims to have acquired from Noa the exclusive rights to what Meyer described as an “11-plus hours of previously unseen home video footage of Jennifer Lopez and Ojani Noa.”

The suit said that Noa plans to market and license the sex tape in DVD format at the American Film Market, which currently is being held through Wednesday at the Loew’s hotel in Santa Monica, Calif.

Lopez and Noa were married from February 2007 until January 2008. Noa, a Cuban-born model, later worked as a chef in Lopez's restaurant, Madre's, and sued her in December 2004, after he was fired.

In the most recent suit, Lopez claims Noa and filmmaker Ed Meyer are violating an injunction she won when Noa tried to publish a book about their marriage.

Lopez says her attorney warned Meyer last Monday by email that he was violating a court injunction by marketing the movie containing the home videos.

"In response, that same day Meyer sent Lopez's attorney an email in which he stated that the home video materials depict Lopez 'in revealing lack of clothing, and in sexual situations, especially in the hotel room footage from [her and Noa's] honeymoon,' and that the injunction is '100 percent ineffective,'" the suit said.

Later, after an exchange of emails that Monday, Meyer said that: 'I don't even need to litigate this in the court system, as I can litigate it in the media.'"

Meyer claims the film is or will be a parody, and is therefore protected. Lopez seeks $10 million in damages, plus costs, for invasion of privacy, violation of publicity rights and breach of contract.

She is represented by Matthew Panagiotis with Lavely & Singer, which has been involved in sex tape lawsuits involving Colin Ferrell, Cameron Diaz and Carolyn Murphy.
