is setting the record straight about rumors she and rapper beau Sean "Puffy" Combs
have sent out wedding invitations and are on the verge of tying the knot. The actress/singer tells TV Guide Online that, contrary to reports, a wedding is not
imminent. "We have a relationship and we're taking it day by day," she says. "A lot of it is just rumors and speculation." Meanwhile, The Catholic League is up in arms over Lopez's soon-to-be-released thriller, The Cell
. Specifically, the group is protesting a sequence in which her character appears draped in white cloth à la the Virgin Mary. "The costumer based that on a Brazilian sea goddess," Lopez argues. "It was this beautiful image and they decided to go with that for the mothering-type character in that section of the movie. There are no crosses, there's nothing Catholic or religious about it. I'm Catholic. They should just relax." Responds Patrick Scully
, the Catholic League's communications director: "Many, many times Catholics will ridicule their own church for reasons only they know. The fact is, [the scene] is another example of Hollywood taking a cheap shot at the Catholic church. What's next? Puff Daddy as John the Baptist?"
