Oops! Casper Smart Lets Slip That Jennifer Lopez Will Return to “American Idol”

Jennifer Lopez’s boytoy boyfriend made a mayjah boo-boo. Model Casper Smart told E! News the singer would return as a judge when American Idol returns for a 13th season in 2014.

Believing that Fox had already made the announcement, Smart confirmed the news to E! Friday. Jenny from the Block, 44, joined Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson on the Idol judging panel for two seasons before taking a break from the reality show last year.

Lopez will be joined by country singer Keith Urban, the lone returning judge from Idol’s ratings-challenged 12th season. Still no word on who will be taking over judging duties for exiting panelists Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj. A host of Idol alums, including Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken have been eyed as possible contenders.
