Jennifer Lopez's Supposed Career Secret: Santeria

Next time you come across a dead chicken who seems to have meet its ends in a Santeria ritual, please remember that chicken may have died for the sake of Jennifer Lopez's career.

Yes, there's a crazy rumor being floated that Jennifer has a godmother in Miami who harnesses the dark power of Santeria to benefit's J.Lo's career and personal life. Of course, the source of this rumor is Claudia Vazques, who just so happens to be dating Lopez's first husband Ojani Noa (who just so happens to be threatening to release a damaging personal tape of Lopez).

Guanabee caught some snippet of a Spanish-language gossip show where Vazquez spreads her Santeria claims:
"I've been told she does the worse -- frightening stuff! Jennifer has a godmother in Miami, which I've never met but Ojani knows her, and she calls this woman to tell her 'do this to this person, put up a black candle, etc.' She's done 'amarres' [spells] on all her boyfriends. It's a typical thing for anybody involved in santeria. But, even with all that, she always ends up leaving them."
Vazquez also says that J.Lo also ordered the use of Santeria to nab the lead role in Selena over Salma Hayek.

Coincidentally, Vazquez, Noa, and Lopez are in a drawn out legal fight over a tape that contains Lopez in the nude supposedly shot during Noa and Lopez's relationship. Lopez has previously won court cases ruling that Noa can not release the footage. However, her lawyers now apparently believe that Vazquez is trying to release the tape on Noa's behalf.

Who the heck is this reporter:  Kyle Munzenrieder?  Is he serious?Does he believe he has to right to report that Santeria is a "dark" religion?  This is awful reporting to say the least.When will the media end the targeting of our religion for their own selfish purposes.I believe Mr.  Munzenrieder owes an apology to the millions of members of the Santeria religion who may take this as being offensive.

I read two sentence's and couldn't get past the numerous typos.  Get a life and stop rumor mongering in bad english and trying to pass as a journalist.

What's the big fng deal???   Everybody knows santeria is part of the Puerto Rican and Cuban culture.   That b*tch is probably mad because she is not as good in bed as JLo!

It would seem to me that lately it is The New Times that seems to be spreading rumors and using Santeria as a scapegoat. It just leads me to wonder what is going. The tone and cynicism behind the article (not to mention the bad editing!) are not unusual. The New Times seems to be going through an interesting and frightful evolution: it is becoming another tabloid! It seems that we are back in the old days of the Inquisition with The New Times playing the role of Torquemada! Let's hope that the victims are fewer this time around.

There was talk of this back in, what, 2006...?  Is this just a resurfacing of those original claims?  Either way, though, does anyone actually care what she believes in or practices? I would love to see some prominent public figures who openly practice Santeria/Lukumi/etc., but -- at best -- all I can muster up as a response to this is a shoulder-shrug of indifference.

***No, love, SANTERIA in REAL LIFE is considered "WITCHCRAFT"  and everybody knows that, you're not supposed to be messing around with that kind of practices... since is  very dangerous and malign to the SOUL. I know people who used to practice that and they are very much ashamed  for getting involved in those kinds of  rituals wich is totaly against true GODLY believes .Santeria comes from Africa and this is something Cubans started to belive in and practice for many years... is no wonder all the missery  and suffering that country is going through , and is not going to stop until they stop worshiping and believing in what is not GOD.all those so called gods they woship are nothing  but a bunch of man made figurines that do nothing to benefit the soul but does more harm then good. , sincethe spirit of THE HOLY GOD . YAWEH is not wit the people who worship demons in other words"FALSE gods.....
