Jennifer Lopez makes her assistant sleep in the same bed with her: needy diva?

These are photos of Jennifer Lopez at the amfAR inspiration Gala in New York last night. She’s in a very form-fitting blue lace Tom Ford gown. This looks like Jennifer’s typical style, skin-tight, shiny look-at-me. At least the thing is long and has sleeves. She could be flashing us. In terms of her hair and makeup, I really dislike that severe pulled-back hair, but maybe she didn’t want her hair to compete with that dress.

Lopez regularly brings Casper Smart with her to events, but in this case she was there with designer Kenneth Cole. Lopez does not like to be alone. She’s a serial monogamist and she falls hard and fast for seemingly whomever guy is in the right place at the right time, hence her current relationship. So does it shock you that Lopez is unable to sleep alone? When her very young bought and paid for backup dancer isn’t available to fill the bill, she’s said to make her female assistant sleep in the same bed with her. Allegedly there’s no funny business going on, it’s just Jenny from the manse needing company.

The superstar freely admits she’s got a real problem with sleeping alone. “But it has nothing to do with sex,” reports my inside source. “When Jennifer and her ex Marc Anthony were traveling all over South America taping for their 2012 show ‘Q’Viva,” Casper often didn’t accompany her – and when he wasn’t around, she’d ask her female cousin/assistant, Tiana, to spend the next right next to her because ‘I just get so lonely in bed!'”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, June 24, 2013]

It’s her cousin, so maybe Lopez feels like she’s known her all her life and it’s no biggie to ask her to sleep in the same bed, but still that sounds ridiculous. The lady is also Lopez’s assistant, and this is really stepping over a line. You know who does that? Lady Gaga. The story came out when her ex assistant filed a lawsuit against Gaga for unpaid wages. Gaga’s assistant claimed she “felt it was required” to share the bed with Gaga. If this story about Lopez is true, her assistant probably feels the same way.

In other J.Lo news, it was thought that she might be returning to American Idol after she was seen meeting with Ryan Seacrest. A source tells E! News “That’s not happening.” Lopez’s reluctance to return to Idol may have something to do with her movie career. She was live on a radio station when she got a phone call informing her that she’d earned a film role she was hoping for. TMZ has the footage where she happily freaks out and says “it’s a small movie, but it’s a great role and a lot of people wanted it.” Maybe that has something to do with why she’s not returning to Idol.

    Why is she so insecure and needy? She needs a therapist as an assistant.

    • Raquel says:

      She sounds like she has MAJOR co-dependency issues, if she cannot even sleep by herself when her man of the month is away. No wonder her marriages never make it…

      And it is completely inappropriate to ask your employee to sleep in the same bed with you. The kind of inappropriate that could end up in civil court, if the employee ever decided to take it there.

      • V4Real says:

        Wait a minute; wasn’t it just a few months ago that we read that Lady Gaga made her assistant sleep in the same bed with her as well?

        But forget the same bed, I wouldn’t want to sleep in the same town as this woman.

      • FunFactor says:

        Some years ago Cher’s gay male assistant did sue her in Los Angeles for–among other things–demanding that he sleep in the same bed with her. My ex was the judge on the case.

      • Raquel says:

        FunFactor–See, that’s why I could never be a judge. I couldn’t even pretend to be impartial. I’d just sit through the whole trial, palm to face.

    • EnuffSaid says:

      sorry…liked the dress better on Liberty Ross…didn’t look as cheap!!

      • TrustMeOnThis says:

        Agreed! Liberty wore it better. And JLo needs to not hold her clutch like that in a sheer dress, it looks like she’s naked and trying to hide!

    • Liberty says:

      It’s like Little House on the Prairie! Maybe she likes to fall asleep chatting about the harvest and homework.

  2. ZinJoJo says:

    So is Kenneth Cole underdressed or is JLo overdressed for this event — because for two people attending together they look like they’re going to different events.

    Also, that python outfit is so fug and so is that horrible suit that her slum boyfriend is wearing.

    • MMRMB says:

      Agreed. I rather thought he looked like a maroon pimp….

    • meaghan says:

      Agreed, theyre both EQUALLY horrible, match made in heaven. I love the look on her face too in the pics. She has Paris wonk-eye.

      • Gina says:

        In that black outfit picture, with her face all twisted up (smirk), she looks like Tina Turner, lol.

      • Pandy says:

        Yeah, I’d be deleting that pic if it was on my camera LOL. I LOVE having a bed to myself – what’s wrong with these people??

  3. mkyarwood says:

    OMG you’re not Marie Antoinette. Get over it, Jenny from the block.

  4. aims says:

    I’ve always thought she was needy. The girl just can’t be alone, for whatever reason. It’s kinda a turn off for me. Maybe its my fiercely independent nature, but a needy person is someone I try to avoid.

    There’s something wrong if you feel you can’t be alone in your own company.

    • karen says:

      Very wrong…

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Reminds me of the Kelly Clarkson song “Stronger” and the lyric, “Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone”

      I relish my alone time, so I just don’t understand people who are clingy like Jlo.

    • Amanda says:

      I completely agree.

    • Hakura says:

      @aims – I agree… It really makes you wonder what could’ve caused the needy behavior. I know it happens a lot when parents give in to the kids & let them sleep on their bed (or one of them goes to sleep in the kids’ bed, something Supernanny had to deal with more than once).

      But with an accomplished professional like JLo, it’s really bizarre. It actually makes me feel *sorry* for her. But there’s no doubt it’s unprofessional & wrong to ask your *employee* to do something like that.

      • Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

        She’s ruthless and sickly competitive and she knows it, so she has a lot of anxiety about that. She likes to pretend to be “jenny from the block” but deep down she knows she’s always been clawing her way to the top–stepping on and using anyone along the way that she could. I think this dichotomy in her public and private persona causes her to not like herself very much–so she can’t be alone.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      1. It’s not mentally healthy for a frown woman (surrounded by security guards, gates, etc.) tone unable to sleep alone.

      2. Is the assistant supposed to do anything? Bring her pills? Just breathe?

      3. She has two kids! I’d rather see her sleeping with them once in awhile than with an employee. Very weird.

  5. kaligula says:

    I don’t buy this story at all.

    Also, I know she’d never cut it in a million years, but I think she would look so good with super short hair– a la Michelle Williams’ angular summer cut.

    And one final comment– that blue dress is hot!

    • Chicagogurl says:

      In that revenge movie, “Enough” she had a short wig and it didn’t look terrible, but it didn’t look good either. I think with her angular face she would look great with a chin bob, but I prefer her curls.

      • kaligula says:

        Ah yes, I remember that look from “Enough.”

        You’re right, her face is pretty angular. Hmmm… maybe I’m just wanting to see her switch it up somehow. Oh well, she’s gorgeous regardless.

    • sauvage says:

      I think that’s a great idea, kaligula. I think she would look great. I think she even has the face for a shaved head. Not that it will ever happen, but I think it would make eyes pop like a can of soda. (Yeah, I know, I’m in a poetic mood, what can I do. )

  6. lucy2 says:

    That seems exceptionally needy.

    I too dislike when she does the tight, pulled back hair, mostly because she seems to shellack down on the little wispy pieces along her hair line and my eye always goes right to it.

  7. lisa2 says:

    Where does Casper sleep??

    regarding her movie career. Parker only made 17 million. But Hollywood is weird.

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      ‘Where does Casper sleep?’

      At the foot of the bed.

      • Hakura says:

        @UsedToBeLulu – “At the foot of the bed.”

        …Like any dog. Maybe she got him one of those cute bedazzled big-dog beds.

    • Dutch says:

      I bet she makes him sleep at the foot of the bed.

      As for the movie role, a lot of people want every role. It’s part of the whole supply and demand thing. I wouldn’t be surprised that it’s revealed she kicked a little of her own dough into the movie in order to get the role.

  8. marie says:

    isn’t this the same story as Lady Gaga, wasn’t there something similar? meh, whatever

  9. bluhare says:

    Are you kidding me? If I have the opportunity to be alone in a bed (especially a king size) I spread myself all over it!

  10. Kristen says:

    Celebrities are so weird.

  11. Ok says:

    I will sleep in any bed with her. And I am a strait female.

    It’s just that she surrounds herself with luxury. Can you imagine the $1,000 4,000 thread count sheets and worlds best comforter on top of the $30,000 ultra cushioned bed??

    It would be the best nights sleep ever. Sign me up for that

  12. Nev says:

    I’ll sleep in bed with her too!!

    Gorgeous love the Tom Ford.

    • Splinter says:

      This dress has been too overexposed in all the stories about minicoopering, that’s all it reminds me of.

  13. tabasco says:

    she seems to be holding her clutch rather determinedly in place over her crotch area in each shot – – is there perhaps a lining issue with the dress?

  14. Ag says:

    Really bizarre. JLo has issues. (What if the assistant doesn’t want to? She gets fired?)

  15. Thiajoka says:

    Ha, love “Jenny from the manse.”

  16. moon says:

    Well, maybe they’re cousins and friends and she also happens to be JLo’s assistant. If I was needy and my sis/cousin happened to be my assistant, I’d ask them to share the bed too so I wouldn’t get scared. And Jen travels loads, maybe she’s had a haunting scare at a hotel lol, or stalkers. She probably lives in huge rooms too and it’s just scary when you’re in this huge place on your own.

    Again, it’s her cousin so giving her a free pass. It’s not like the Gaga case which I found creepy.

  17. kim says:

    She just doesn’t have “it”. She should raise her kids and realoze she had a semi good run over a decade ago.

  18. Micki says:

    Is this Liberty’s dress?

  19. sauvage says:

    And to think that I actually prefer sleeping alone except for the cat…

    Edit: Is it wrong to secretely wish for Jennifer Lopez to realize that she is actually a lesbian and that her string of failed, unhealthy relationships with men were just symptoms of that? And then for her to find a really nice, hot lady who is not in the movie business, but maybe a gallery owner or something?

    I’d love for that to happen. It would be earth-shaking gossip-wise.

  20. ParisPucker says:

    Slow news day? It’s her cousin…

    • LL2 says:

      Great question! I don’t think the cousin would be JLO’s assistant in the first place if they weren’t close. The cousin would probably share JLO’s bed anyway even if she wasn’t her personal assistant. I think is story is trying to make something out of nothing.

  21. whateveryouwantittobe says:

    I remember once she said she still sleeps with a lamp on and is afraid of the dark so it’s not a stretch to believe this at all.

  22. lulu1 says:

    shame on tom ford

  23. lisa says:

    maybe if she worked on that, she wouldnt need such a budget mon chi chi of a boyfriend. cougaring – you’re doing it wrong.

    caspar looks like he is off to sears for his 8th grade graduation picture in 1978

  24. Wicked says:

    I don’t know sucking my thumb while wrapped around my safety blanket worked wonders for me…Oh, wait, I was 2! WTH?

  25. truthful says:

    she is so desperate in all aspects of her life/career..tryHARD

    couldnt pay me to work for her

  26. jwoolman says:

    Actually- we’re mammals and in particular primates. It’s pretty normal for mammals (especially primates, who are social) to sleep with others. Dogs and cats are infamous for wanting to share beds with their pet humans. Western culture especially seems to have somehow come to value sleeping alone especially for those able to afford separate rooms – even newborns. It’s not really all that natural, explaining why children typically have stuffed animals or dolls to keep them company in bed. (The image of Justin Bieber’s poor abandoned monkey clinging to her stuffie comes to mind….) It’s the culture that convinces us that we must abandon even our stuffed bed companions when we grow up, not some natural need for isolation. Throughout most of human history, and in many places today, humans really did never sleep alone except under unusual circumstances. In cartoons from the 1930s and 1940s, as a matter of fact, a common scenario was two (usually male) mismatched characters sharing the only bed in their rented room (hilarity always ensued).

  27. madeline7 says:

    From what I’ve read, it’s common for performers to feel very lonely, esp. at night. Some take it further. There was something in a column about Marc Anthony borrowing Jennifer’s huge pregnancy body pillow when he went on tour and the twins were too young to travel. Just goes to show: they ‘re people too.

  28. madeline7 says:

    Lucky girl probably grew up with her relatives, cousins etc. living close-by and had sleep-overs. I heard that she still tries to involve them in the twins’ lives. LL2, I agree with you.

  29. madeline7 says:

    – deleted

  30. madeline7 says:

    Lisa2, you wrote that “Parker” has grossed $17 million so far. Looks like Jason just landed himself the lead in another thriller. I think Jennifer gave a really good performance in “Parker”.

  31. VioletCrumble says:

    Jenny from the Manse. That, and…….

    All of you have had me chortling!!

    Despite having a big bed, I am a very still sleeper, and only use one quarter of the bed. Put it this way: it would have to be a very fine person indeed to be allowed the other three-quarters. Just, no, Jenny.

    She is starting to look really overworked, and rather than it making her look youthful, she’s really looking her age, although there’s nothing wrong with that, of course. I know her skin is naturally caramel (?), but she looks seriously orange.

  32. that bitch says:

    ”poor jlo ” jlo is now realizing she is getting older(look at her face) and she knows that her pre k boyfriend is only there for her money and if she didn’t have the money and buy him a shizz load of stuff he would not be around I honestly feel bad for her its obvious that she cant take being alone hince all the many many men in a row since p diddy that new tee should say more boyfriends than jlo considering jenny has been around the block way more times than taylor
