According to Turkish media reports, Jennifer Lopez will be paid $3 Million dollars to appear at the opening of the “Cratos” hotel in Northern Cyprus.
The resort, which is located in the Turkey occupied part of the island, will officially open on July 20 and host an exclusive Gala Night on July 24. The Gala Night will have a special series of exclusive events. Jennifer Lopez, her husband Mark Anthony, and their twin children Emme Maribel and ‘Max’ David will attend the event.
A very special birthday party will be organized on the night for Jennifer Lopez who will celebrate her 41st year. Cratos Premium has prepared a birthday party full of surprises for Jennifer Lopez – JLO, Mark Anthony, and special guest artists coming from America.
One of the surprises is the fashion show by Roberto Cavalli. World famous fashion designer Roberto Cavalli will visit Cratos Premium as a guest of Fashion TV and will organize a surprising fashion show for JLO.
Political action groups urged Lopez not to visit Turkish-occupied Cyprus and thereby endorse the illegal Turkish-military-invasion and illegal Turkish-military occupation of Cyprus.
The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) wrote in a statement that “the Turkish lobby is spending millions of dollars to also ensure that public relations specialists promote her visit and bring in Western reporters. Allegedly, even the “BBC” will be there for Lopez’s illegal visit. It is obvious that the human-rights-abusing Turkish government is using Jennifer Lopez in an attempt to purchase a false “normalcy” and false “legitimacy” for the bandit pseudo-state that is recognized by no-one but Turkey .”
The organization’s letter points out “it is especially pertinent that the Turkish lobby also chose July 20th 2010 as the date of her landing in Turkish-occupied Cyprus, a date that every Greek-Cypriot knows is the 36th year anniversary of Turkey’s illegal military-invasion of Cyprus that killed thousands of Greek-Cypriots, that forcibly displaced hundreds of thousands of Greek-Cypriots from their homeland, and also resulted in the rape of 800 Greek-Cypriot women.”
There are rumors that Jennifer Lopez may reconsider visiting Northern Cyprus after the reaction of groups and individuals that critisized her decision.
