A new British TV documentary on Latina stunner Jennifer Lopez claims her upbringing is nothing like the tough urban life she tells fans she experienced.
In her single “Jenny From the Block,” J.Lo sang about the girl who “used to have a little and now has a lot” after rising up from her south Bronx upbringing, but that has been disputed by a documentary called “Behind the Behind.”
The show – to be shown on British TV’s Channel 4 on April 30 – reveals that the star comes from a nice New York suburb and had a private education.
Despite her comfortable upbringing, retired policeman Henry Palayo – who has known the Lopez family for 20 years – insists she was still in a hurry to forget her roots in Castle Hill, in the Bronx.
He says, “She’s another Hollywood star who’s forgotten where she comes from. She’s very artificial – more artificial than a plastic rose.”
