LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) It's one video that "Jenny from the Block" does not want you to see.

And for now, at least, Jennifer Lopez will get her wish. A California judge has granted a temporary restraining order barring Lopez's first husband from distributing more than 11 hours of home video footage from their marriage that the actress-singer claims includes sexual situations.

Ojani Noa planned to distribute the footage with the help of his manager Ed Meyer. The two even proposed making a film, tentatively titled "The J.Lo and Ojani Noa Story." The Tuesday order also applies to Meyer.

Lopez wed Noa in 1997 and their marriage lasted 11 months.

Noa, who represented himself, claimed the footage included nothing sexual and alleged that Lopez is trying to keep him from success.

"I'm going to fight this," Noa said of the order.

Lopez sued Noa on Friday for $10 million, claiming he breached a prior confidentiality agreement by intending to sell a movie containing hours of home video footage, including some showing Lopez in sexual situations on their 1997 honeymoon.

The suit also claims invasion of privacy by "public disclosure of private facts which would be offensive and objectionable to a reasonable person and which is not of legitimate public concern."

Noa obtained a $125,000 settlement from Lopez in a 2004 suit that claimed she fired him without cause from a job as manager of her now-defunct Pasadena restaurant. As part of the settlement, he agreed not to disparage Lopez or sell private or intimate details about her or their relationship.

In 2007, Lopez won $545,000 in damages and attorney fees in another lawsuit that blocked Noa from publishing a ghostwritten tell-all book. Lopez claimed Noa had demanded $5 million to keep him from publishing the book.

According to court documents, the book claimed that Lopez had multiple affairs during her marriage to Noa, including one with current husband Marc Antony.

Lopez, 40, married Antony in 2004 and they have two children. She also was married to choreographer Cris Judd in 2001. That marriage lasted for nine months.
