Jennifer Lopez is under scrutiny for celebrating Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov's birthday. The leader of Turmenistan has been criticized for committing widespread human rights abuses in the nation. The birthday serenade was a last minute request for Jennifer. Her rep says that had there been knowledge of human rights issues of any kind, Jennifer would not have attended. In 2011, Hillary Swank profusely apologized for attending a birthday party for Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who had been accused of torture and killings. Beyonce, Nelly Furtado, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey and Usher were paid to perform at parties of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi. They all later announced plans to donate their performance fees to charity. As for Jennifer, her performance fee wasn’t disclosed.
