CLAIM: Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Lopez In “Money War”
5:06 pm, October 22nd, 2010
For weeks, various mags have wrongly reported there’s a feud between Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest over a variety of issues, including which star gets top billing. Now the National Enquirer claims the two are in a “money war.”
Reportedly, Seacreast makes $15 million a year off of “American Idol,” and Lopez is taking home $12 million for her first season.
According to the tab, Lopez “shrewdly negotiated a pay raise for herself every time Ryan… gets a salary boost, and the ‘Idol’ host is livid.”
A so-called “insider” tells the Enquirer, “Ryan hasn’t confronted J. Lo, but when he heard that her future raises are tied to his raises, he was furious.”
“Basically, her contracts are hard-wired so that when Ryan makes more money, she’ll make more money,” says the tab’s source, adding, “[Ryan] doesn’t like his salary being dragged into her contract negotiations, and he’s upset about her tactics.”
As in… wow how wrong this story is.
For starters, Seacrest isn’t upset with Lopez. In fact, they’re friends, and the “Idol” frontman is among the reasons why Lopez wanted to do the show.
More importantly, though, a Lopez confidante assures Gossip Cop that the new judge’s salary is in NO WAY tied to Seacrest’s. And a source close to Seacrest tells us the Enquirer‘s tale is “ridiculous.”
Actually, far from being angry with each other, a source connected to the hit show tells Gossip Cop that Lopez and Seacrest are already having fun “ribbing each other” on air.
