Jennifer Lopez is a media mogul to the very core with her successful clothing line for Kohl’s, numerous movie ventures, music and television projects, but if there’s one thing Jenny from the block is known for, it’s bringing the heat on set in every single one of her music videos.
Her latest single – “Live It Up” – features Pitbull on its track and the sexy twosome brought their star power to Fort Lauderdale, Florida as they filmed their new music video. And it definitely was a party: Lopez wore a variety of bathing suits and cover ups on set – including a soft green chiffon number that looked similar to the infamous Versace gown she wore to the 2000 Grammys – and boyfriend, Casper Smart, was also on hand to liven up Fort Lauderdale’s white sand beaches. But while Lopez looked every inch the boss behind the camera during shooting breaks, it looks like there was one thing she couldn’t control: an unexpected outbreak of gun shots while on set. Lopez, who was giving a press interview with “Entertainment Tonight” host Rob Marciano at the time, was immediately rushed off the set by security. While no suspects were apprehended in associating with the shooting, Fort Lauderdale Police spokeswoman Detective DeAnna Greenlaw told the NY Daily News that Lopez was not in the immediate area of the shots fired.
“Fort Lauderdale police officers responded to a call of shots fired at the northernmost point of the Fort Lauderdale beach park parking lot,” said Greenlaw in a statement. “Jennifer Lopez and her crew were filming in the southernmost end of this park. Officers responded to the area in an attempt to investigate the incident; however, the individuals involved in the shooting fled prior to their arrival. At this time, there are no known witnesses, no reported injuries and no further information.”
