It appears “Jenny” has run into a bit of trouble on her block. Variety reports Jennifer Lopez has been hit with a lawsuit for lack of influence to promote a hoverboard manufacturer on social media.

In 2015, Lopez was reportedly sent 42 custom hoverboards as props for her Planet Hollywood show in Las Vegas and in exchange, the plaintiff. Sidekick Group claims she agreed to promote the products on her personal Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Lopez did in fact tweet about the hoverboards once, in a fun video with her backup dancers groovin to her classic record. “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” It was a creative idea, but one time was not going to cut it for Sidekick.

The company alleges to have dished out $54,390 on the expenses for the hoverboards and is now suing her for the exact amount since she failed to her obligation.

This isn’t the first time the group filed a lawsuit. Last year, Richard Sherman was also hit with paperwork after backing out of a promo deal although the suit was later dropped.

Sidekick’s website has been inactive since March 2016. Seems like they are threatening to sue left and right since their sales have drastically declined.
