Jennifer Lopez claims she recently had a narrow escape from a car accident when photogs tried to catch up with her in Beverly Hills.

“It was the paparazzi trying to beat the light on the same turn with us,” she told reporters, according to the Associated Press. She added that the experience gave her “goosepimples” when the other car went “screeeech” right in front of her vehicle.

“Sometimes they feel like it’s a game; like they’re playing cops and robbers,” said Lopez, who was unaware she was being shadowed, because “I try to block this stuff out a little bit ’cause it’s the only way to kind of live.”

She admitted, too, that possibly talking about the incident wasn’t the right thing to do, given that “nobody likes to hear somebody in the public eye who they feel makes a lot of money complain, so we don’t, but it is a very strange thing.”

Continuing with that train of thought, she said: “Nobody writes books about how to deal with it or anything like that. Maybe I’ll do that next. No. I’ll make no money, it’s not worth it.”
