Pop star Jennifer Lopez is in hot water over a Morocco festival performance some thought was too sexy.

Lopez faces a lawsuit because of her suggestive stage moves and the apparel she wore during her May 29 concert at the Mawazine Festival. The performance was in front of 160,000 and broadcast on public television.

The show even led to a call for the country's communications manager to resign, according to a report by the BBC. The communications manager has rejected the push to resign, but said what aired was against the law.

Lopez and the show's promoter are being sued. If she is found guilty, the singer faces one month to one year in prison, according to TMZ.
