Jennifer Lopez 'too expensive' for IPL 6 opening ceremony

Indian Premier League organizers have dropped pop diva Jennifer Lopez from the opening ceremony of its sixth edition, to be held in Kolkata on April 2.


According a report in The Sun, the 43-year-old singer was said to have demanded a private plane and dozens of hotel rooms for her entourage. She also wanted to bring along her personal stylists, assistants and chef as well.

Describing Jennifer's demands as 'idiotic', a source said: "The demands were outrageous. She effectively priced herself out of an event which has a huge audience."

However a spokesman for the singer has said she had turned down the deal because she was busy recording an album.

Last year singer Katy Perry, who was dressed in Bollywood attire, performed at the IPL 5 opening ceremony, watched by an estimated 56 million people.

International rap artist Pitbull has been roped in this year to perform alongside Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone.
