We all know that Jennifer Lopez comes off as a Diva no matter how much she tells us that she is not! SourceÂ areÂ saying that Jennifer’s demands got out of control and so she was ditched, but…Jessica Simpson’s name came up again…Jessica is way too sweet for this show!
Jennifer Lopez wonâ€™t be a judge on American Idol after all, according to a source close to the situation.
The singer-actress had been closing a deal to be a permanent judge on the show for its upcoming 10th season but the deal fell apart.
â€œHer demands got out of hand,â€ says the source. â€œFox had just had enough.â€
With Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres both departing the talent search, the network had been pursuing a number of celebrities as potential judges, including Aerosmithâ€˜s Steven Tyler.
But now that Lopez is out of the running, the network may be looking at their earlier top picks again.
Other reports have said that the panel could go back to the original three-judge format.
Fox had no comment. A rep for Lopez did not immediately return calls for comment.
