We thought J.Lo had unofficially decided to quit American Idol, BUT turns out there is something that would get her to stay!
Mz. Lopez told Ellen, she wanted to leave so she could to spend more time with her 4-year-year babies. Howeves, a show insider says Jenny has a less adorable reason for leaving: she doesn't want Britney Spears showing her up!
The insider says Mz Lopez doesn't really want to leave the show, she's just playing hardball for a salary bigger than Brit Brits $15 Million.
According to the Idol source:
“J LO and American Idol are striving for headlines, along with it being ‘strictly business,’ she is also for sure wanting more money than Britney Spears to return. She is not signed for next year but nothing is better in Nigel’s eyes than people talking about American Idol and who the judges will be all summer. Look what it did with The X Factor!”
Must it always come down to a mater of money and pride??
Well, J.Lo may just get what she wants. Nigel Lythgoe has made it clear that he reeeeeally wants her back next year.
