NEW YORK -

Jennifer Lopez had no problem accommodating a last-minute request to sing "Happy Birthday" to the leader of Turkmenistan during a concert there Saturday.

What she didn't know is that human rights organizations consider him one of the most repressive dictators in the world.

Lopez was performing at an event hosted by the China National Petroleum Corporation and it wasn't considered a political event. She was asked to serenade Turkmenistan leader Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow and she obliged.

Lopez's representative has since said Lopez would not have performed there at all had she known about human rights issues in Turkmenistan.
