Russian billionaire buys Jennifer Lopez for 3m dollars

Latin singer Jennifer Lopez has been paid a staggering $3 million to perform at the birthday party of a Russian billionaire's wife.

Banker Andrei Melnichenko, 35, paid for Lopez to fly from Los Angeles to his Berkshire, England estate to sing at the 30th birthday of his spouse Aleksandra.

Mr Melnichenko, 35, who became one of the world's youngest billionaires by founding Moscow's MDM bank, flew the American star by helicopter to his 27-acre estate in Ascot to perform a 40-minute set

The 60 guests, including Russian and Serbian tycoons, were entertained by cabaret acts and circus performers as they dined in a specially-constructed nightclub under a marquee before Miss Lopez performed a selection of her hits, including If You Had My Love and Jenny From The Block.

Aleksandra, who married Mr Melnichenko two years ago, once had a pop career of her own: at 17 she became a founder member of an all-girl Yugoslavian pop group called Models.

Aleksandra, who bears something of a resemblance to Miss Lopez and speaks five languages, has been modelling since she was 15, Daily Mail reports.

A source says, "J.Lo was booked because both Andrei and Aleksandra are fans of her"

When Andrei married Aleksandra two years ago, Christina Aguilera provided the wedding entertainment.
