Fans and the media who turned out to meet chart-topping American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez yesterday were instructed not to ask questions about a court case involving her former boyfriend Sean 'Puffy' Combs. 'Miss Lopez will not take questions about the case because it is a matter of court proceedings,' a master of ceremonies said before the 30-year-old star walked on stage for a press conference at the Grand Hyatt, Wan Chai. Rapper Combs is on trial for weapons and bribery charges related to a shooting outside a New York nightclub in December 1999. Lopez was present at the time of the incident, but not charged. If convicted, Combs, who has pleaded not guilty to all charges, could face up to 15 years in prison. Lopez, whose new album J.Lo and film The Wedding Planner are topping charts in the United States, also dodged questions about the public perception of her break-up last week with Combs. 'I don't keep up with everything in the media because there is a lot of misconception and a lot of stuff that's not always true. I try not to get into all that,' she said. Asked about reports that she had insured parts of her body, Lopez laughed and replied: 'Not true. Sorry.' For the remainder of the half-hour session she breezed through questions about her beauty and fitness routine ('I'm not a fanatic, I work out when I feel things are getting jiggly'), priorities ('work is great but nothing can take the place of spending time with family'), her favourite city ('any place that has water') and who she would next like to be in a film with (Russell Crowe). Lopez, who is on a three-day whirlwind tour of Asia to promote her new album, said she would start a concert tour of the US and Canada in August. 'There are no definite plans for a tour abroad, but hopefully we'll be able to do that later this year or early next year,' she said.
