March 29 (UPI) -- Jennifer Lopez was allegedly dropped from performing at the Indian Premier Leage opening ceremony over unreasonable demands.

According to the Daily Mail, the songstress's manager, Benny Medina, allegedly asked for Lopez to be flown to India in a private plane, and for the hotel expenses for herself and her entourage --including stylists and a personal chef-- to be covered by the organization.

After refusing to meet her demands, Pepsi IPL decided to book Pitbull for the show instead, a source told the New York Post.

"She effectively priced herself out of the event," the source told the Post. "It was an idiotic move because the audience for this event is huge. It’s like the Super Bowl halftime show."

One of Lopez's representative denied the claims arguing the "On The Floor" singer was not able to attend the IPL ceremony due to scheduling conflicts.

"An offer was made to perform; the date conflicted with Jennifer’s current music-recording schedule for an album due this summer," the rep told the Post.

Although Lopez has sang about remaining "Jenny from the block," a girl who use to have a little but now has a lot, this isn't the first time the singer is forced to deal with diva-reputation rumors.

The Daily Mail points out that in 2010 the singer allegedly put her American Idol gig on the line over "unreasonable demands" -- including a $20 million yearly contract and her own dressing room compound.

Later, in 2011, Lopez was forced to admit she did't really go to her home town, the Bronx, to shoot her "My World" Fiat commercial, where she claims the neighborhood is "her playground," but instead shot the promo in L.A.
