LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A judge on Monday blocked singer-actress Jennifer Lopez's first husband from distributing a tell-all movie with video of the former couple's sex life.

But Ojani Noa, a chef and model who was married to Lopez for less than 11 months, said he would fight back.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Chalfant's order to Lopez's former husband will remain in effect until a court hearing on Tuesday, to determine whether to extend it.

Lopez filed against Noa on Friday, two years after she won a $545,000 judgment against him in a similar case involving a planned tell-all book.

In her latest lawsuit, Lopez said Noa was shopping around to film industry players a movie with footage of the couple in sexual situations, including their time in a hotel room during their 1997 honeymoon.

Lopez, who married singer Marc Anthony in 2004 and has two children with him, is seeking $10 million in damages and a court order permanently blocking dissemination of any video showing her and Noa in intimate situations.

The judge said he issued the temporary order because the proposed movie "How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The JLo and Ojani Noa Story" may violate an agreement between Lopez and Noa, in which he agreed not to disclose private information about her.

Noa, who came to court on Monday without an attorney, said that he was not dissuaded by the judge's ruling.   Continued...
