The word on whether Jennifer Lopez will be back for another season on Fox’s “American Idol” appears to be imminent, as J.Lo is close to a deal to return for at least one more season, reports The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog. (Please note that The WSJ is behind a pay wall and not all readers may be able to access the story.)
Lopez had said earlier that she was unsure about returning for another season, following the expiration of her $12 million contract, the story says.
Cecile Frot-Coutaz, chief executive officer at "Idol" producer FremantleMedia North America, declined to comment, although she said, "We’re in good shape. No worries. No dark clouds on the horizon.”
Fox declined to comment and a representative for Lopez said, "There is nothing to announce," the piece adds.
