Hollywood actress Jennifer "J. Lo" Lopez dodged gunfire over the weekend as reports claim a shooting took place around her "Live It Up" music video shoot in Miami.
Details on the gunfire shot up the Internet blogs Monday (May 6).
Jennifer Lopez -- wearing a tiny bikini -- was escorted off the set of a music video shoot in Ft. Lauderdale this weekend after three gunshots rang out right near the production. Lopez seemed very cool, calm and collected as her BF Casper Smart walked her to a nearby trailer. Police say the incident occurred at the northernmost point of the Ft. Lauderdale Beach Park ... while Lopez and Pitbull were shooting the video in the southernmost end of the park. (TMZ)
Mixed reports claim Lopez was either tucked away in a vehicle or being interviewed when it took place.
The Miami Herald quotes security officials saying Lopez was "secured inside her vehicle" at the time of the incident ... but a reporter for "ET" says he was interviewing Lopez when the shots were fired and "security scrambled her away." When cops arrived to the scene, a witness told police he saw the shooter. So far, no arrests have been made. (TMZ)
Over the weekend, Miami's Pitbull came through to show J. Lo support.
Jennifer Lopez took Miami by storm while shooting the summery video for her new single "Live It Up" over the weekend. The hot mama partied on the beach with Mr. 305 and "America's Next Top Model" alum Eva Marcille, who has a starring role in the Jessy Terrero-directed clip. J.Lo cozied up to boyfriend Casper Smart between takes and showed off her curves in a skin-toned swimsuit, while Mr. 305 hit the sand in a neon blue suit. The RedOne-produced song will premiere May 8, while J.Lo's 10th album arrives this summer. (Rap-Up)
