Jennifer Lopez Leaving 'American Idol'?

Is Jennifer Lopez planning to call it quits at the American Idol judges’ table?

The 42-year-old entertainer is leaving the show, E! Online reports, with a source saying “she’s just too busy.”

JLo, who topped Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list, is set to launch an international concert tour this summer with Enrique Iglesias.

Jennifer recently hinted at her possible Idol departure during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“Now this is my second year – I don’t know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down, which was nice the first year with the babies being 3, but now they’re getting more mobile, they’re about to go into school … So I just don’t know,” she said.

    Don’t go JLO! You’re the only reason why this show is so hot and still relevant!!! What other female guest can make it as hot and sexy as yo did??? I think celebrity coaches are fine just where they are… we got Christina on The Voice, Britney on X FACTOR and JLo on American Idol.. I mean, nothing can get better than that IMO! Specially Christina, who has the most talent!

    Cultist Mitt Romney posthumously baptized people into the Mormon faith against their and their family’s wishes – including his own father in law and Jews who died in the Holocaust. They died for being Jewish, but Mitt thinks they should be Mormons.

    I hope Jennifer Stays!! she is the best judge and always have something constructive to say to these contestants. She is by far the best Judge on television.

  • Mekia

    Who else are we going to look forward to see what they are wearing!! dont go Jennifer!!!! she may not be the best vocal singer but she has experiences and she brings that really well on Idol.

  • well

    She is so stupid. if she leaves Idol. She needs to stop believing the hype. The only reason she is at this stupid list is because of American Idol. Her music is not selling so great and she can’t open a movie.

  • xiopio

    JLO is the only reason I watch as well. Love to see what’s she’s wearing, lol

  • Annie

    ( which was nice the first year with the babies being 3, but now they’re getting more mobile, they’re about to go into school … ,”)

    Funny that she thinks Idol is going to stop her from spending time with her kids and school but not touring around the world or the many other thing she has going on.

    And I agree if she left the show she can say by by to the success she has going on right know.

  • IllWill

    Her career is gonna plummet again and than she will sign back on

  • Bollocks

    so is she saying she wants to spend more time with her kids? I hope so! I would think them being only 3 would be harder for her to leave them not that them going to school would make it harder. that was kind of an un clear statement she made but I hope she is realizing that she needs to be a better mom.

  • T

    The whole panel needs to be replaced.

  • Heather

    If Jlo was smart.She give AI another shot cause her moving career isn’t doing all that great.

  • Cruizin596

    I would like to see both JLo and Randy go. I enjoy Stephen – never know what he is going to say, even if I disagree with him, he is entertaining. They need judges who do not so obviously show their bias. Here’s a refreshing idea? Why not bring back some earlier idol winners or idol successes to be judges.

  • beauty

    meh well I hated the show after Simon left. but she saved it for me. If I can look at her fashions and beautiful face Im happy.

  • Wtyrone

    I am gad she is leaving… Maybe now I will start watching it again… She just used it for own gain.. Plus how many adults say goosies and not goose bumps… See ya j lo

  • WTP

    JLo is the show. She needs to get paid Simon kind of Money..35mil

  • She Stinks!

    Good, leave! Don’t let the door hit your ginormous no talent a$$ on the way out. Go back to obscurity and stay there. She is so delusional that people got interested in her again because of AI. This movie is going to bomb, no one will go see her ‘sing’ either. The Kohls line is a failure. I hope she does go, and goes away forever! Do it JHO Bag!

  • Annie

    Dose anyone know how her Kohls clothing line is doing?

    I mean her high end clothing line failed and then her line at Macy’s failed her jewelry line there was bad, my sister brought a ring from her line years ago because she thought it look pretty and with in a day it turnd her finger green and the clothing quality was terrible, Is her and Marks clothing line at Kohls doing any better?

  • camillus

    Yea now if she would go away from making movies, trying to sign, she’s such a Wh+re and cant sing, can’t act so maybe she well go away & we never wlll have to see her fake everything.

  • Me real kel!

    WOW, now many of you praising her and saying good things about her?? really sounds WOW !!

  • Andamentothat

    She should stay.. I love her sense of style on the show. Quit que viva!

  • kimmi

    She’s better at making perfumes.

  • Me3

    I love AI and would be happy if she didn’t come back. I don’t need to see her filthy performances… Nor do the many impressionable young teens that watch the show. Not a good example especially since she divorced the father of her children to play with her boy toy.

  • Ms Kitty cat

    HaHaHa ! WTF is up with her frankenstein forehead! That this has been lifted to the middle of her head . To many forehead lifts.Ha ha ha ha !

  • Natasha (Nataliya) Stasyi

    What a WONDERFUL… please somebody, help me to continue the phrase. It’s soooo nice to say such “nice” things about the one you DON’T like. Lol

  • a

    I would say that she’s busy…because of American Idol. She wasn’t all that relevant before the gig. Ironic.

  • nan

    She is not leaving. She just want more money.

  • carol anderson

    I think Jennifer Lopez is the best–why would anyone speak ill of her
