COURT TROUBLE

Lopez manages to look fabulous as she leaves a New York City court in early Jan. 2000. The singer met with the district attorney regarding an incident a month before involving members of Combs's entourage, who fired shots into the air and injured bystanders during a club scuffle. That night, police handcuffed Lopez to a bench in the station and grilled her for 14 hours before she was cleared of any charges.
