Jennifer Lopez thinks it is "horrible" her first husband is trying to sell a "personal" video.

The 41-year-old singer's former partner Ojani Noa -- who she split with after less than a year of marriage in 1998 -- has been banned from releasing the tape, which reportedly contains 27 hours of footage, and she admits it is upsetting he would try to in the first place, but says it is not a "sex tape."

She told Culture magazine: "My first husband has tapes of us from our life. It's horrible. It's horrible someone would try to sell personal things, but there's nothing on it. There's no sex tape."

The intimate video recently went missing, with Ojani's girlfriend Claudia Vazquez claiming his manager Ed Meyer took it from their house without permission.

However, the recording has since been recovered, with Ed handing it over to Jennifer's attorney Jay Lavley via a safe deposit box at the City National Bank in Century City, California.

He said: "Now there is an evidentiary chain. Before they just wanted me to hand it over to Jay Lavely and he would just put it in a drawer. We went with a bank so people will be photographed coming in and out and there is no tampering."
