Scoop! J.Lo and the curse of the first husband

Jennifer Lopez’s first ex-husband, Ojani Noa, claims Lopez is using voodoo on him.

Noa was shopping a tell-all book about their marriage (the couple was hitched for about five minutes in 1997), but Lopez has filed an injunction to block the book. Lopez says she paid Noa $150,000 last year to keep quiet.

In a court deposition, Noa said the actress-singer-fashion-designer practices Santeria, an African-based religion originating out of Cuba and Brazil involving chants and sacrifice, that she uses to influence him and her other lovers, including Lopez’s second husband Cris Judd, former boyfriend Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and her latest husband, Marc Anthony.

“She was doing bad things to a lot of people. She was doing all this religious [expletive deleted] to me, to Chris Judd, to Puffy Combs and to Marc Anthony,” Noa said, according to Court TV. “We were even doing voodoo when we weren’t married. She was doing bad things to a lot of people when we were friends. And I know all this because we did it together to this particularly lady.”

Lopez has declined to comment on Noa’s claims.

We’re wondering if former fiancé Ben Affleck was able to escape J.Lo’s witchy ways. If he was under her spell, it would explain “Gigli.”

Fifth time’sthe charm, right?

Actress-turned-VH1-freak-show Brigitte Nielsen married her fifth husband, Mattia Dessi … again.

Nielsen, 43, and the former Italian model, 28, walked down the aisle in February, but the nuptials were not legal as Nielsen hadn’t officially ended her marriage to her fourth husband, ex-race car driver Raoul Meyer.

This time the couple really did tie the knot at the Radisson SAS Golden Sands Resort and Spa in Malta on Saturday, according to People magazine. We assume Nielsen’s former love Flava Flav’s invitation got lost in the mail.

Chapter 7: So, I woke up in a stranger’s house again

Robert Downey Jr. is finally going to fess up to his all his wild ways in an autobiography.

The “Scanner Darkly” star, 43, has signed a deal with Harper Entertainment to publish his memoirs, which will include the highlights (an Oscar nod for “Chaplin”) and the lowlights (repeated arrests, jail time and rehab stints due to drugs and alcohol).

“He has an intelligence which shines through all his performances, revealing his intellect as well as his acting abilities,” Harper spokeswoman Marjorie Braman told CNN. “His dramatic personal life, often at odds with his career, adds a layer of complexity to who he is.”

It’s a jungle out there

Paris Hilton was spied buying a kitten and a parrot at the Bird Kingdom & Pet Shop in Santa Monica, according to Us Weekly. Of course, Hilton will probably forget about these pets faster than you can say, “Nicole Richie.”

On a similar subject, Hilton recently had to drive home from Las Vegas when an airline refused to let the gossip-page regular bring her mini-zoo on the flight, including her pet ferret, tiger and monkey.

“I tried to bring them on a commercial flight and they wouldn’t let me fly with all the animals. Theysaid it wasn’t a traveling circus,” the alleged singer told World Entertainment News Network. “So I had to drive all the way home from Vegas in the limo with all these animals, there was like six. It was a lot.”
