Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda have found themselves entangled in a lawsuit over their 2005 film Monster-In-Law amid allegations of copyright infringement.

According to the lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Raleigh, Gilbert and her husband Willie are seeking a share of the near $155 million (£112.9 million) the comedy made worldwide.

According to E Online, PETA plans to cause a stink by planting a member among the crowd of young women vying to be named a "Glow Girl" and hoping to win an appearance on Lopez's online project, the Glow After Dark Show. It is not clear if Lopez herself will actually be attending the event.
PETA has frequently targeted the WAITING FOR TONIGHT singer for wearing fur and using it in her clothing line.
Lopez was spotted wearing a furry frock at Prince's Golden Globe Awards after-party on Monday night (15JAN07).
A representative for PETA claims the group has alternative plans in case their faux Glow Girl is discovered, saying, "If her cover is blown, you can be sure that PETA has something else up its sleeve.
