Jennifer Lopez is undoubtedly one of the leading names in the Industry. The Maid in Manhattan star has, over the course of her career, cemented her position as one of the leading names in showbiz globally. But all that reputation did not prove to be of much help when she tried to strike a deal with the organizers of the most lucrative Cricket tournament in the world. Little did she know at the time that she would soon be left all embarrassed.
The big-ticket performer
One won’t be wrong to call Jennifer Lopez one of the most prolific big-ticket performers out there, having proved her worth by featuring in remarkable shows, including an iconic appearance with Shakira for the Super Bowl halftime.
Her natural flair has won the attention of many people, which has translated into her receiving numerous offers. One such proposal came from the organizers of the Indian Premier League, the most lucrative Cricket tournament in the world. It was a pity that a deal could not be worked out between the two parties.

Jennifer Lopez couldn’t work out an arrangement to work with the organizers of the Indian Premier League
The On The Floor singer and IPL couldn’t work out an arrangement acceptable to both parties. And it was all because of JLo’s exorbitant demands. The Jenny on the Block singer wanted a private plane and dozens of hotel rooms for her huge entourage, including her stylists, assistants and chef, a demand to which the organizers of the Indian Premier League did not bow down.
They proceeded with Pitbull, and the inaugural ceremony was a huge success. A source for the New York Post later said,
“She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was an idiotic move because the audience for this event is huge. It’s like the Super Bowl halftime show. Last year, it drew 56 million viewers.”
But that wasn’t the only fall for her.
