Jennifer Lopez has reportedly agreement to return to American Idol for the new series after allegedly signing on to a $17.5m deal.
According to the new claims Jennifer has agreed on a new American Idol deal, which is $2.5m more than her deal for judging the 2012 season of the show, and will join returning panelist Keith Urban on the revamped panel.
"There was a lot of back and forth negotiating on her salary, but now it's finally been settled that Jennifer will earn $17.5m to go back to Idol next season," a source revealed to MailOnline this week. "It's a major coup for her to land a huge payday like that and I believe she is thrilled with that number.
"It's a lot more than the $15m Britney Spears was paid to do The X Factor [USA]," the source added.
