“Jenny from the Block” is headed to Hollywood: On Thursday, TV industry spies spilled that singer/actress Jennifer Lopez is close to sealing a deal to serve as a judge on the upcoming 10th season of American Idol.
On Aug. 11, PEOPLE Magazine quoted another source who said FOX executives ceased negotiations with the notoriously-demanding 41-year-old mother after growing disenchanted with her impossible requests. Quite the contrary, TMZ.com tipsters say. Not only has the “Waiting for Tonight” hitmaker not overwhelmed Idol producers with her diva demands. The show may finalize a deal with Lopez as early as next week.
“It’s been typical negotiating,” the A.I. source says.
