Jennifer Lopez and fiancé Alex Rodriguez face a lawsuit after their driver allegedly hit the man with an SUV in LA
Jennifer Lopez and fiancee Alex Rodriguez are being sued by a man who claims to have been hit by a Cadillac SUV who was wearing the superstar pair.
The alleged accident happened in an alley last October, behind a restaurant on trendy Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood.
The man, Liyanage Perera, claims that he was seriously injured and that neither the driver nor the couple came out to check his well-being, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.

A TMZ video from the time of the incident showed a gate opening and the white SUV slowly left a parking lot when a number of photographers shot away and tried to take photos of J. Lo and A-Rod.
As the driver turned to the right, a few meters after passing the gate, someone heard a shout: & # 39; oh s ** t, woo, woo, woo. & # 39;
As the shooter of the video walked to the right side of the vehicle, the plaintiff was seen on the ground with a camera in his right hand.
He quickly got off the ground because someone could be heard asking if he & # 39; ok & # 39; was, with what seems to be two valet workers walking towards him.

The driver of the SUV waited about 10 seconds before slowly walking forward to get out of the alley.
At no time did the driver, Lopez or Rodriguez get out of the vehicle.
But just before he left, the driver seemed to hear two of the photographers: & # 39; See what happens if you flash like that, I can't see where I'm going. & # 39;
One of them, who kept taking pictures, replied: & # 39; You ran over him. He was out of the way. & # 39;
His opinion: the claimant in the lawsuit claims that neither the driver nor the superstar couple have left the SUV to check their well-being
Perera reported an incident with a local sheriff department, but criminal prosecution has never been initiated.
Law enforcement told TMZ that pedestrians cannot block a vehicle by standing in front of it, and drivers are allowed to crawl forward.
In the suit, Perera admitted that the couple were not behind the wheel, but added that they had not instructed their security team to be careful when they withdrew from the restaurant.
He is looking for money for medical costs plus compensation.
