A successful entertainment lawyer, who once represented Michael Jackson and Andrea Bocelli, has been found dead in an apparent suicide.

Peter Lopez, 60, died of a gunshot wound at his home in California. Mr Lopez worked with singers, record producers and songwriters, and was a co-producer of the Jennifer Lopez film Selena. A neighbour reported hearing a shot, and someone at the home found the body. Mr Lopez was hired in 2006 as Jackson's entertainment attorney when the singer's business affairs were being reorganised.
