MIAMI (AP) - Singer and actress Paulina Rubio wants the media barred from attending a deposition by her manager in a Miami breach contract lawsuit.

Rubio’s lawyers are asking a judge to keep reporters out of Thursday’s scheduled deposition by manager Marya Meyer. They say it would lead to a media circus and cast Rubio in a poor light. The judge is holding a hearing Thursday morning on the motion.

Rubio was sued in 2010 by Miami-based CMG Entertainment over her failure to show up at a concert in Tunja, Colombia. The lawsuit seeks just over $985,000 in damages.

CMG Entertainment opposes closing the manager’s deposition. Its lawyers say Rubio hasn’t shown sufficient legal cause to bar the media and that her status as a star isn’t a good enough reason.
