J.Lo: No $1 Billion Body

05/15/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

On Monday, Jennifer Lopez spoke of love and money for reporters in Hong Kong, where she is on a publicity swing. The actress-singer, 31, who scored a double bull's eye last month by having the No. 1 movie of two weekends, "The Wedding Planner," and the No. 1 CD on the sales charts, "J.Lo," punctured the rumor that she had insured her body for $1 billion. "No," she said about the story, adding, "I know that was a big rumor." She even clipped and "saved the newspaper to show my kids one day, but it's not true. Sorry." Lopez also insists that she is not fazed by reviews. "It's not about the critics for me -- it's about the fans. There's always people who say negative things and there's always going to be people who say positive things." But despite her overall chattiness, Lopez was tight-lipped when it came to questions about former boyfriend Sean "Puffy" Combs, 31. The rap mogul officially announced their separation last week, on Valentine's Day. (Combs is currently on trial in New York for weapons possession and bribery charges stemming from a Dec. 1999 nightclub shooting at which he was allegedly present with Lopez.)
