*Multiple reports today have Jennifer Lopez’s “American Idol” contract finally a done deal – and for the $12 million that was reported Monday by Deadline Hollywood. However, Fox has yet to comment.
The Hollywood Reporter, TMZ.com and People.com are among the outlets confirming that the entertainer’s agreement is for one year and allows her to be at the auditions for the new season – which begin next week.
Deadline had reported Monday that Lopez received a $12 million contract offer that excludes Fox promises for additional film or TV projects, which she had been hoping to secure.
