It's just like the old adage says: if you're a celebrity, don't make a sex tape.

The latest Hollywood star to find this out the hard way is none other than Jennifer Lopez, reports MSN.com. Lopez' first husband, Ojani Noa, to whom she was married for just 11 months, has won the legal right, courtesy of an LA judge, to sell a tape of he and Lopez getting down to the highest bidder.

And the highest bidder is likely going to be very high -- why, the tape might even fetch close to the amount that Lopez gets paid per episode of "American Idol":

Speaking to E! Online, Noa’s business manager Ed Meyer revealed that rival porn distributors had already placed astronomical opening bids running into ‘hundreds of thousands ‘ - and admitted that the final price could well be over a million.

J.Lo has been fighting with Noa in court for years over the footage, which she hoped to prevent form being distributed. He has been barred from leaking other items due to the fact that he signed a confidentiality statement after their divorce.

Radaronline.com reports that Lopez' attorneys are heading back to court on Monday to find out "the scope of the preliminary injunction to be issued."
