The New York Post recently reported that the driver for Lopez’ manager, Benny Medina, quit over his alleged demanding behavior, this time during a celebrity-filled event where the American Idol judge was to present an award to Bill Clinton.
Immediately after dropping Medina off at the red carpet, the driver quit. Sources told the Post that Medina got into “terse words with the driver,” whose name wasn’t revealed. And his attitude continued on during the event. While Lopez was reportedly “lovely and did everything she was asked to do,” Medina got into a heated exchange with organizers and was grumpy when Clinton’s Secret Service detail asked who he was.
Medina is the former senior vice president of Black music at Warner Bros. The hit TV sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was based on his life.
