Jennifer Lopez is finalizing her deal to return to her “Idol” family.
Over the weekend, Lopez reached an agreement on the main points of her deal to rejoin the “American Idol” judges panel for its upcoming thirteenth season.
According to Deadline TV, an announcement from Fox is expected within the next week or two.
So far, the details on Lopez’s new deal are vague. But rumors are swirling she will make around the same amount she did when she was last on the show, which reportedly was around $15 million.
On Thursday, after announcing Keith Urban would officially be returning as a judge, Fox president Kevin Reilly said Lopez may be joining Urban.
“Jennifer has been a close part of the show all along…there have been discussions there,” Reilly told E News. “There is no deal with her or anyone else.”
Aside from Lopez and Urban, producers are also rumored to be eyeing Black Eyed Pea’s singer will.i.am for the final judge’s spot.
But Lopez’s return is what people are talking about.
“Both Fox and Jennifer are very happy about this and want it to happen very much,” the source told People magazine.
