She may be the victim, but the Grammy-winning entertainer knows Brown needed help after the incident. "I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who's gonna help him?" she stated. "Nobody's gonna say he needs help. Everybody's gonna say he's a monster without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.

against her former driver, who threatened to spill her secrets to the public if she did not pay him $2.8 million.

those requests, Lopez claims he engaged in extortion, attempted extortion and conspiracy.
"Manoukian plotted to retaliate against Ms. Lopez and her management and to use his apparent position of trust to exploit and extort substantial sums from Ms. Lopez," the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court shows.
According to the suit, Manoukian
would expose "sensitive and personal information that he had allegedly overheard while driving Ms. Lopez" if he did not receive the exorbitant sum.
