Jennifer Lopez Reportedly Calling It Quits On ‘American Idol’
LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — Say it ain’t so, JLo? It appears the curtain is closing on Jennifer Lopez’s brief tenure as a judge on “American Idol.”
According to E Online, this will be Lopez’s final season on Fox’s hit show.
“She’s just too busy,” a source told E Online.
Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe told TMZ Wednesday that he would not want Lopez to leave the show.
“We want her back. I want her back,” Lythgoe told TMZ.
The 42-year-old actress and performer reached a deal to be a judge on the singing comptition in 2010 after Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi left.
Lopez is earning a reported $20 million for her role on the program this year.
Last month, Marc Anthony filed for divorce from Lopez after being married for seven years.
