Jennifer Lopez says she did not get anyone fired and the German maid who claims she lost her job because of the singer is way out of line. The story that got its start in a German tabloid says the maid approached her for an autograph while she was staying at a hotel where she worked. The maid claims Lopez complained to management and the maid got the axe the next day. Sources say there WAS an incident involving a maid, but it didn’t involve an autograph. It was more like the maid had “barged” into the room unannounced and the singer’s security immediately kicked her out because they didn’t know who she was. Hotel management has since assured Lopez’s people that no one was fired — but the maid company the hotel uses has relocated the woman in question to a different property.
