The Daily Telegraph is reporting that:JENNIFER Lopez is being sued - along with her husband Marc Anthony - by a female flight attendant who says she was attacked by their dog Floyd on a plane.
Pop and movie stunner J-Lo took the guard dog on a private flight from New York to Los Angeles, during which it allegedly pounced on Lisa Wilson. Wilson, 40, claims she fell over and injured her back during the incident two years ago and is now unable to work. As a result she wants $5 million in damages from J-Lo who gave birth to twins earlier this year.
In order for Wilson to win this case, she will have to prove that (1) the dog was know to be dangerous and previously bite someone and (2) she suffered real injuries documented by medical records. This is no $5Million case - that's for sure. But, if she really injured her back and was kept out of work, there will be something coming her way from the booty shaking diva.
