American actress, dancer, entrepreneur, fashion designer, film producer, philanthropist and singer Jennifer Lopez's performance at theopening of India's Premier League was reportedly axed because of her diva like demands.
The 43-year-old singer is said to have insisted on a private plane and dozens of hotel rooms for her huge entourage, including her own stylists, assistants and chef for the opening gig, reported Sun online.
"The demands were outrageous. She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was idiotic because the audience for this event is huge," a source said.
The organisers have now roped in rapper Pitbull for the April 2 event in Kolkata which will also see Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif perform.
The newspaper quoted a Lopez spokesperson as saying that the singer turned down the deal because she was busy recording an album.

Sinhala Aluth Avurudda was celebrated in the Kandyan Kingdom as a national festival under the patronage of the kings. This was done in keeping with the rituals. The astrologers worked out Nekath (auspicious times) to perform the rituals in order to bring about prosperity and happiness to the people and country.
Sinhala Avurudda dawns when the Sun moves from Meena Rashiya to Mesha Rashiya completing a cycle of a twelve-month period. The transition time know as "Sanskranthi" takes place on April 13 or 14. It is during this period that some of the rituals are performed to mark this important event of the year.
The dawn of Aluth Avurudda signifies social customs and good behaviour of the Sinhala people. The majority of the people being farmers, after their major harvest "Maha" of the year is over, celebrate the occasion in the form of giving thanks. The customs and rituals portray the beliefs and thinking of the people whose life is centred around agriculture.
