Report: Jennifer Lopez Off ‘American Idol’
UPDATE: An insider tells Gossip Cop that “[American Idol] negotiations are still going with Jennifer” and characterizes reports of Lopez’s demands as “wildly exaggerated.”
If you were hoping to see Jennifer Lopez as a new American Idol judge – consider your dreams dashed. J-Lo is reportedly out of the running, People reports, due to diva-like behavior during the negotiations.
A source said: “Her demands got out of hand…Fox had just had enough.”
Still on the reported list of candidates up for an Idol judgeship are Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, Harry Connick, Jr., Howard Stern, Jessica Simpson, Mariah Carey (according to Nick Cannon) and a slew of other stars we run down in this handy gallery.
Who do you think should be the next American Idol judge? Let us know in the comments.
