J.Lo has reportedly taken the back-up plan.
“The Back-Up Plan” star eventually “settled” for $12 million and won an “overall” deal with Fox but without a specific TV or film project commitment, sources told Finke.
The negotiations “ended up working out and they have a good agreement,” an “Idol” insider told Us.
Lopez’s rep has so far not commented on the reports.
“Jennifer Lopez is a wonderful woman,” Lythgoe said in August. “I’ve worked with her a lot. How anyone who could call that lady a diva, I have no idea.”
With filming on “Idol” already underway, Lopez will likely join Randy Jackson and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler on the judges’ panel, according to reports.
The network has agreed to delay its announcement to coincide with the mid-September release of Lopez’s new single, according to Deadline.
