She better make it rain

January 8, 2020

The stripper, Samantha Barbash, who inspired Jlo's character in the movie Hustlers is suing the production company saying they used her story without her permission and made her look bad in the process. She says they portrayed her as using illegal substances in her home where her child lived- she claims this was untrue.  

Barbash claims she turned down the producers of the film after they offered her a low ball offer.  

She's suing for $40 million -- $20 mil in compensatory damages and $20 mil in punitives. She also wants an order requiring producers to turn over all copies of the movie.

Hopefully Lopez saved some of that cash!!!!
