Calls to Lopez's lawyers and media representatives went unreturned.
According to the lawsuit, Meyer has refused to turn over the home video footage or stop production on the film, claiming that the 2007 injunction is "totally ineffective." He told the Web site NewsBlaze that the injunction doesn't apply to a film that is a parody.
It appears that Lopez is not convinced and is doing everything in her power to stop the project.
"The reality is people do these things," Connecticut family law attorney Guy Ferro told ABCNews.com. "Jennifer Lopez wasn't stupid -- she let her heart govern what she did. It happens all the time."
At the same time, such a tape surfacing is not necessarily a bad thing for a celebrity.
"A lot of them, that's how they got their start," Ferro said. "They take their clothes off and become a star."
Here are four celebrities famous for getting caught naked on tape:
Another recent tape gaffe was commited by Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California USA who lost her crown for failing to fulfill the duties of her title. She then lost out in a lawsuit against the Miss California USA organization because they got their hands on her sex tape.
Today, Prejean told NBC that making the X-rated tape for her then-boyfriend when she was 17-years-old was "the biggest mistake of my life."
"All I know is there is a campaign against me trying to silence me," Prejean said. "They tried to embarrass me. They tried to humiliate me. They tried to attack me. And I'm still standing."
The 22-year-old beauty queen confirmed the existence of the tape to Fox News Monday night. According to The Associated Press, her X-rated video surfaced during a negotiating session with Miss California pageant officials over a lawsuit Prejean filed against the organization for stripping her of her crown earlier this year. When the tape's existence was revealed, Prejean settled her suit with the pageant, which paid her $100,000 to go toward her legal expenses, according to TMZ.com.
The "Baywatch" babe may not have started the celebrity sex tape phenomenon but she sure made them popular.
The tape of her and then husband Tommy Lee from Motley Crue, made by the then newlyweds, was stolen from their safe in 1996. Along with a few sessions of intercourse, it includes the couple exchanging vows.
The couple sued a video distribution company that obtained the video. They ultimately won $1.5 million and, more importantly, a share of the profits when the company sold copies of the stolen honeymoon sex tape.
Eight years before Anderson and Lee starred in their sex tape, Rob Lowe made headlines with his own. The leaked tape featured Lowe having sex with two women, including a 16-year-old, during the 1988 Democratic National Convention.
Lowe claimed he didn't know the 16-year-old was underage. It was later confirmed that they met a bar, which she had entered by lying about her age.
Another part of the tape, showing Lowe and a friend having sex with an American model in Paris, was sold as one of the first commercial sex tapes.
Lowe's image took a dive and he entered rehab for alcohol and sex addiction. His career eventually rebounded and he even mocked his bad-boy behavior as host of "Saturday Night Live."
