Is J. Lo Worth 50K a Minute?

Would you pay $50,000 a minute to have Jennifer Lopez perform at your party? A Russian multibillionaire is paying J.Lo 2 mil to sing for his wife's 30th birthday.

Andrei Melnichenko, a 35-year-old Russian banker, is flying Lopez to the U.K. to entertain his model wife, Aleksandra, and her 60 guests at their home for her birthday bash, according to various overseas reports. The tab is said to be $1.2 million fee, plus $800,000 for Lopez and her entourage’s expenses.

“Andrei and Aleksandra are both very great fans of J. Lo, so Andrei put the call in and personally put the offer to [Lopez,]” a source told London’s Daily Mail. “She accepted immediately. She will sing for about 40 minutes — not bad money for the work.”

And there won't even be that many people attending to see Lopez perform. The billionaire's London rep says that the party is strictly for family and close friends.
