J.Lo's ex to perform on AI

Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband is set to audition for her on American Idol.

Ojani Noa, a former waiter from Cuba, became Jennifer’s first husband when they married in 1997. Noa is planning to sing on the show in Los Angeles, and will even serenade the rumoured judge with one of her own songs.

The pop hopeful's manager, Ed Meyer, said: 'Ojani Noa will be in line at the Forum on September 22 to try out for American Idol in front of his ex-wife.

"He escaped Cuba and married Jennifer Lopez, now he wants to be the American Idol. Of course he will sing a Jennifer Lopez song.”

Ojani's stunt is set to take place on the same day as the new judging panel for the show is officially unveiled by host Ryan Seacrest, which is said to feature Jennifer who has reportedly signed a $12 million contract to join the series alongside original judge Randy Jackson and two other new panel members.

Ojani, whose marriage to Jennifer lasted less than a year, initially remained on good terms with the singer and actress after they split. However the former couple have fallen out in recent years, after Jennifer hired and subsequently fired Ojani as head chef of her now closed Latin restaurant, Madre's, in 2002.

He has since been banned from publishing a tell-all book he wrote about the 41-year-old star by one court, and last year a judge ruled he was also not allowed to commercially release footage from the couple's honeymoon.

Since divorcing Ojani, Jennifer dated rapper P. Diddy, married and divorced dancer Cris Judd, got engaged to actor Ben Affleck and finally settled down and married singer Marc Anthony, with whom she has two-year-old twins Max and Emme.
