Jennifer Lopez won’t judge on the American Idol because “Her demands got out of hand”

“Her demands got out of hand,” a source said. “Fox had just had enough.” Sources also said that J. Lo. was not on the top of the list of possibly judges.

“J.Lo was definitely not the first choice,” a source told the PopEater website. “In fact, she wasn’t even the second or third choice. “It became clear that neither Elton nor Barry was ready to stop doing what they did best, writing and performing.

“Plus, they are international legends. They certainly don’t want their legacy to be [as] the guy that replaced Simon Cowell on Idol. On the other side, rumors say that Jessica Simpson was on the point to sign a deal for the show.

“You won’t find many folks that like Jessica’s movies or music, but who doesn’t love watching Jessica on TV,” a source said at the time. “She would be the perfect person to replace the void that Paula Abdul left. Jess is funny, caring and a total ditz. Just what the show needs to make America start caring again.

“[But] Benny dazzled the Idol producers in his pitch of J.Lo, and how the power of his client could put Idol back on top. “This was literally music to Idol’s ears after seeing their show drop over 20 percent in the ratings in just one year.

“All of this has left Jessica heartbroken, she has known for some time that she needs a Benny Medina-type manager to secure her the big opportunities when they come along, but how do you fire your own dad?”

No more concert for Jennifer Lopez in Cyprus

Moreover, the singer was accused of according legitimacy to northern Cyprus, a breakaway state recognized only by Ankara.

“Jennifer Lopez would never knowingly support any state, country, institution or regime that was associated with any form of human rights abuse,” a statement on Lopez’s website said. “After a full review of the relevant circumstances in Cyprus, it was the decision of her advisors to withdraw from the appearance.

This was a team decision that reflects our sensitivity to the political realities of the region,” it said.

J. Lo and her family: husband Marc Anthony and their two children booked to stay at the Cratos Premium Hotel, located in a region where thousands of Greek Cypriots were displaced from in 1974. Jenny from the block was booked to perform there on July 24.

“Her fee had been paid and everything was ready, but she felt it was not safe for her to travel. She was led to believe there was a war going on,” said Feza Firat, whose Istanbul-based F&F Agency represents Cratos Hotel.

“Several Greek Cypriot families who had made reservations to attend the concert are just as disappointed,” she added.
