In an apparent slip, the boyfriend of superstar singer and former "American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez revealed that Lopez will be returning to "Idol," although Fox hasn’t officially announced her hiring, reports E! Online.
Casper Smart was asked by E! News whether Lopez is returning to the program, and he answered, "Yes," the story notes.
"Apparently Smart thought that Fox had already made the announcement. (Nope, that was all you, sir. The network, meanwhile, had no comment.)," the story reports.
If Lopez does return, she will join Keith Urban, who is the only judge returning from the show’s 12th season. Several other names have been mentioned as possible new judges, including former contestants such as Jennifer Hudson and performers such as the Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, the piece adds.
Former judges Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj aren’t returning to the show.
