But Jennifer Lopez denies it

A hotel maid was allegedly fired after asking Jennifer Lopez for an autograph.

Pray Dodaj – who worked at the Melia Duesseldorf in Germany – was starstruck when she was sent to clean the former ‘American Idol’ judge’s room recently and tried to get an autograph, but says she was sacked the next day after Jennifer complained.

She told German newspaper Bild: "I cleaned on her floor. And I am an incredibly big fan so I took all my courage and rang the bell to get an autograph.

"But I was rejected by two assistants at the door.

"A day later, the cleaning company that employed me at the hotel called and said that Ms Lopez had complained. I was fired right there on the phone! Because of an autograph!"

The hotel director, Cyrus Heydarian, stands by the decision to sack Pray, insisting they don’t tolerate employees who disturb their guests.

He said: "She has acted contrary to the contractual arrangements and disturbed the privacy of our guests".

Jennifer performed in the city on Wednesday (31.10.12) as part of her current European tour.

'It's not true' - J.Lo

She said she was "hurt" by claims she got a hotel maid fired for asking for her autograph.

She wrote on Twitter: "C'mon thought you knew me better than this.. Would never get anyone fired over an autograph. 1st I heard of this was on twitter. #hurtful".

She doesn't address the question: Did she lay a complaint about her fan requesting an autograph? I think that's the issue. If I were management of the cleaning company I'd be left with no option but to fire the employee if someone as big as J.Lo complains. I say the issue was very simple...just sign the autograph and let the poor fan go, afterall she is your fan and loves you. Why complain for something as minor as that? I'm sad about her behavior/attitude.
