Is Jennifer Lopez Leaving American Idol?

FOX

Is Jennifer Lopez leaving American Idol? Apparently, yes. Source tell E! Online that the pop diva is "too busy" for the show, and that she'll be calling it quits after this season.

While Lopez has not publicly stated whether she'll return or not, just one look at her schedule can confirm just how busy she is. Not only is she set to go on tour with Enrique Iglesias, but the next set of auditions will happen while she's overseas! (Not to mention, balancing motherhood has to be tough with such a demanding schedule.)

Lopez has held her own on the panel with Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson for two seasons. The first season she nabbed $12 million for her judging, and $20 million for her second season. Could all this speculation just be a ploy for a fatter paycheck?

Would you be sad to see her go? Who would you want as a new American Idol judge? Share in the comments!
