She'll be back! After months of negotiation, Jennifer Lopez has inked a $20-million contract with "American Idol." FOX announced Wednesday that the superstar will return to the judges' table in January for the show's 11th season.
Although producers were pushing for a multi-year contract (like the one Steven Tyler has), Lopez agreed only to a one-year deal and will reportedly receive a giant $8-million raise... almost doubling her paycheck from last season's hefty $12-million.
Nearly a month after they announced their separation, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony seemed to have put their differences aside for a sun-filled visit together.
The two were spotted riding in the back of a red Mustang convertible Wednesday, TMZ reports, near Sagg Main Beach in Southampton.
"Extra" talked with vedic astrologer Carol Allen -- who studies how the positions of planets and the time of birth shape someone's love life -- and analyzed some of the recent celebrity breakups and hookups.
On Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Allen said Lopez tends to jump into relationships quickly. "Moon Scorpio women leap without looking. We call her J.Lo. We need to call her J.Slow," while Anthony "has a sun, Pluto combination. Pluto is all about control and being dominant."
As Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony remain estranged, a new report says Anthony wants another chance.
UsWeekly magazine says Lopez is moving on, partying with friends into the wee hours in Miami Beach and "bonding" with Rodrigo Santoro, her co-star in "What to Expect When You're Expecting," but Anthony is "seething with jealousy," a source told Us. "Marc is suspicious of anyone, especially a hot guy she is working with. It drives him crazy."
It looks like Jennifer Lopez may be nearing a multi-million-dollar deal to return to "American Idol" as a judge.
The Wrap reports the pop star will be returning to the hit FOX show with a contract that is "a smidge over" $20 million, according to a source, which would be a big raise from the $12 million she made in her debut season earlier this year.
FOX reportedly must also work around Lopez's busy schedule. The actress/singer is starring in two upcoming films -- the comedy "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and the thriller "Parker" - and is teaming with her now-estranged husband Marc Anthony on the talent-search series "Q'Viva!"
For the first time since announcing her divorce from husband Marc Anthony last month, Jennifer Lopez is speaking to Vanity Fair, telling the magazine, "Sometimes it doesn't work -- and that's sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love."
The "Idol" judge continued, "It's still my biggest dream. I am positive -- determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong."
Fresh from her festive 42nd birthday weekend celebration in Miami over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez was back to work on Tuesday on the set of her new movie, "What to Expect When You're Expecting."
The mother-of-two took a quick break to say hello to her twins, Max and Emme, even giving her son a big smooch.
Although Lopez looked happy on set, she is reportedly furious with estranged husband Marc Anthony -- even putting his leftover belongings in storage and refusing to see him.
Publicly stepping out for the first time since announcing her separation from Marc Anthony, superstar Jennifer Lopez enjoyed the company of friends and family for her 42nd birthday over the weekend, according to People.
Lopez showed off her toned figure while posing for photos in a bikini, head wrap and sunglasses while in Miami on a private yacht aptly named "Never Say Never."
