Jennifer Lopez Still in Running for ‘American Idol’

By Daniel Gates



Last month, Gossip Cop had the worldwide exclusive news that Jennifer Lopez was offered a spot as a judge on “American Idol.”

Earlier today, claimed that Lopez “won’t be a judge on ‘American Idol,'” quoting a source “close to the situation.”

“The deal fell apart,” declared the site, citing alleged demands on Lopez’s part.

Soon enough, the sheep at Access Hollywood dutifully followed suit, as did journalism’s chief stooge, Perez Hilton, and dozens of other outlets. The rumor that Lopez was “out of the running” spread everywhere.

But People and its parrots are wrong.

Gossip Cop has learned from our rock-solid insider that “negotiations are still going with Jennifer,” and that today’s reports of the star’s demands thwarting a deal “are wildly exaggerated.”

Of course, anything can happen until a deal is officially signed.

But as of now, Lopez is absolutely still in the running, despite rumors.
