Why Police Were Called On Jennifer Lopez During Her Birthday Week in the Hamptons

Jennifer Lopez turns 51 on July 24th, 2020. Last year, Lopez celebrated the big 5-0 on Star Island in Miami. So, where is the highest-paid musician in the world celebrating her birthday this year? J.Lo has options, as she currently owns several homes – a French-inspired Bel Air mansion, a $25 million Manhattan penthouse, a Malibu Beach house, and a home in the Hamptons. Currently, Lopez, her fiancée, Alex Rodriguez, and their children, are in the Hamptons. However, they ran into a tiny crisis recently, mid-celebration.

Jennifer Lopez celebrates turning age 51 in the Hamptons

Lopez bought her Hamptons property for just under $10 million in 2013.

Despite owning several homes, the Hamptons House has been declared her “favorite” according to SceneTherapy.  The retreat, located near Water Mill was built in 2004 and has 8 bedrooms with 7 ½ baths.  The home includes a spa, office, guest house, media room, sauna, study, and outdoor shower and pool.

Lopez, her future husband, and her kids got stranded after their day at the beach

No matter where Lopez is currently residing, her every move is followed by the media. According to TMZ, J.Lo and her kids appeared ready for a day at the beach this past week. Lopez, along with her crew, drove three dune buggies to Mecox beach. Lopez looked casual and was dressed in a one-piece swimsuit, jean shorts, and the proper pandemic face-covering.

Witnesses reported the buggies pulled into the parking area near the Bridgehampton beach. However, Lopez and Rodriguez ignored the parking attendants who check for permits. (The Hamptons beach issues full-season permits to local residents and a few daily permits when available.)

Witnesses called the police — meaning that even with Lopez’s star power, the buggies were towed after the cops found they were parked without proper permits. Lopez and her crew were left stranded. 

Paparazzi captured the “Jenny From the Block” singer looking concerned, with her children looking on as she texted for help. Of course, Lopez has multiple resources available to her, and after phoning a friend, the family was rescued by a friend driving to the beach in Rodriguez’s blue Bronco.
