Jennifer Lopez scrambled away by security as gunshots are fired near her video shoot in Florida
Jennifer Lopez was rushed to safety after gunshots were fired in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, near the place she was filming a music video.
Security guards took JLo to a vehicle after hearing several gunshots about 400 yards from where she was filming on Sunday night in Fort Lauderdale.
Police converged on the area, but the people involved in the shooting were not found, although police detained several people at the scene.
Jennifer Lopez, 43, was in Fort Lauderdale to shoot the music video for Live It Up, her upcoming collaboration with Pitbull.
She was filming an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the set of her music video when the shots were heard.
Entertainment Tonight‘s Rob Marciano, who was interviewing JLo, reported that “Security scrambled [Jennifer Lopez] away” after the shots rang out.
He tweeted: “BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away.”
Rob Marciano added: “Can hear & see ambulances converging ~400 yards down the street.”
Before adding: “Police confirming: <<shots fired. no one hit>>. Whew.”
Security officials said Jennifer Lopez was secure in her vehicle when the incident was reported, but it’s bound to have brought back memories from the time she and then boyfriend P. Diddy were arrested over a shooting at a nightclub in New York in the late ’90s.
JLo is being supported on the shoot by her partner, Casper Smart, 25, who has brought his mother along too.
