MARDER, SHE BROKE: Trouble for J-Lo as Maureen Marder, the welding dancer who Flashdance was based on, launches legal action complaining that when J-Lo made the I'm Real video as a homage to the movie, she inadvertently also lifted Marder's lifestory uncredited and unrewarded. What makes it worse is that since abandoning the weld-gun for the tutu, Marder has had a serious injury and is finding it hard to make ends meet, and so a few dollars from the Lopez Organisation would have been a really nice gesture.

We note that Marder didn't bother to sue Geri Halliwell, who also lifted chunks of Flashdance for the clip which accompanied her desecration of Its Raining Men. But then Marder probably thought Halliwell too absurd to be worth pursuing through the courts.
