Source: Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler offered “American Idol” (EXCLUSIVE)
8:50 pm, July 29th, 2010
Ellen DeGeneres is officially out of “American Idol,” because she “hated being critical,” says a source familiar with negotiations.
In fact, Gossip Cop hears she asked to be released from her contract the day last season ended, but was told there was no chance unless they found another panel.
Which brings us to today’s HUGE news.
A lot can happen between tonight and the announcement, expected at Fox’s TCA Press Tour presentation on Monday, but as of now we’re told the two have been tapped to be the new “American Idol” judges.
Reps for Lopez and Tyler did not return calls, and a rep for “American Idol” issued a “no comment.”
