Rosie Perez claimed J-Lo was two-faced and manipulative
Early on, celebrities may cross paths in unpredictable ways. J-Lo was a no-name dancer who got her chance when she joined the In Living Color ensemble The Fly Girls in 1991. Rosie Perez was the choreographer who oversaw her performance. You’d think these two Big Apple Puerto Ricans would be friends. They weren’t.
In Handbook for an Unpredictable Life, Perez recounted that the other dancers would endlessly gripe about J-Lo manipulating make-up artists, wardrobe people, and even herself. She subsequently revealed seeing her at a Hollywood nightclub many years later, when J-Lo pretended to be nice. Perez wasn’t having any of it; instead, she went after her.
