It seems that last week was a bad week for hotel maid Pray Dodaj. It seems that asking for Jennifer Lopez‘s autograph cost Pray her job. The maid was under the impression that the former American Idol judge complained about being disturbed, and got Pray canned. Jennifer Lopez has taken to twitter to defend her honor!
When Pray Dodaj heard that Jennifer Lopez was rooming at her place of employment, the Melia Dusseldorf in Germany, she thought she may get a chance to meet or see the star. She dished her experience to a local German newspaper, saying “I cleaned on her floor, and I am an incredibly big fan so I took all my courage and rang the bell to get an autograph. But I was rejected by two assistants at the door. A day later the cleaning company that employed me at the hotel called and said that Ms Lopez had complained. I was fired right there on the phone. Because of an autograph.’ Ouch!
When major media outlets inquired about the event to the hotel, the director, Cyrus Heydarian, says that he stands by his decision, saying, firmly, that he doesn’t tolerate employees who disrupt his guests. “She has acted contrary to the contractual arrangements and disturbed the privacy of our guests.”
When J-Lo got wind of this, she took to Twitter to clear the air. “C’mon thought you knew me better than this. Would never get anyone fired over an autograph. 1st I heard of this was on twitter. #hurtful”
We know that some stars don’t mind giving autographs, and some do, but Jennifer seems to be incredibly friendly to her fans, so I believe that the hotel director was trying to shift some blame off of himself and the hotel when axing Pray. What do you think? We’re betting Jennifer will be sending her an autograph today!
