Rumors are swirling that Jennifer Lopez is set to take her place at the American Idol judges table, but insiders close to the show are saying that those reports are premature. Maybe Jenny From The Block isn’t packing up husband Marc Anthony and twins Max and Emme, 2, for the move to Hollywood just yet.
According to sources, part of the delay is due to negotiations by Jennifer’s representatives – they’re trying to broker a lucrative package for her that could include a development deal with media empire Fox. Apparently Love Don’t Cost A Thing, but having a superstar like J-Lo on your show requires plenty of perks.
But there are other factors at play, too. The American Idol audience is a fiercely loyal and vocal one, and Jennifer’s camp is also waiting to see what the public’s reaction is to the possibility of the singer-actress becoming an Idol judge.
