Apparently, 43-year-old Jennifer Lopez was filming a video for the song "Live It Up" on Fort Lauderdale Beach yesterday when shots were fired in the vicinity.
Entertainment Tonight co-host Rob Marciano tweeted that he was interviewing her when shots rang out:
"BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my JLo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away."
Fort Lauderdale police had a slightly different take. A spokesperson said in a statement:
"FLPD responded to a call of shots fired at the northernmost point of Ft. Lauderdale Bch Park parking lot (800 Seabreeze Blvd). Jennifer Lopez and her crew were filming in the southernmost end of this area.
Officers attempted to investigate the incident; however, there was no evidence of a shooting, no known witnesses, no injuries and no further information.
The FLPD Captain overseeing the security for the event, involving Jennifer Lopez, advised FLPD-PIO that she was secured inside her vehicle at the time of the incident."
Lopez's boyfriend Casper Smart and rapper Pitbull were also on set yesterday, according to celebrity gossip site Justjared.com, which has photos.
