London: Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, Ojani Noa, is apparently planning to audition for ‘American Idol’.

Noa 36, is Lopez`s first husband, who unsuccessfully tried to do a tell-all book on the star and was fired as manager of her now-defunct restaurant, Madre````s, in the States.

Noa’s manager Ed Meyer has said he will stand in line with other Idol hopefuls to audition in front of Lopez, new American Idol judge.

“He`s a good singer," the Daily Mail quoted Meyer as telling Radaronline.

Lopez`s relationship with her first ex-husband has been a battle since their divorce in 1998.

Noa went to work for Lopez as manager of Madre`s in April 2002 but was fired a few months later and fell on hard times.

He sued her over the firing and later a confidentiality agreement was drawn up between.

However, that didn`t stop Noa from attempting to do a book, Lopez then sued him for breaking the confidentiality agreement and won a permanent injunction against him in 2007.

Later he planned to make their brief life together into a film and was again sued by Lopez for breach of the original confidentiality contract and invasion of privacy.

Finally, Noa claimed to have a sex tape and exclusive home video of their life together.

Lopez, through her lawyer, Jay Lavely, denied that there ever was a sex tape but did admit that the tape was private and personal.
