Jennifer Lopez reportedly planning to exit 'American Idol' after two seasons

By Reality TV World staff, 05/16/2012 

Jennifer Lopez's American Idol run may be ending.

While she is publicly claiming to not have made a decision yet, Lopez is planning to leave American Idol's judging panel following next week's eleventh-season finale, E! News reported Wednesday, citing unidentified sources.

"She's just too busy," a source told E! News.

"Fox does not want to let her go. They love her," another source added.

Fox reportedly declined to comment on the possible departure of Lopez, who joined Idol's judging panel on a one-year contract in Season 10 and then signed a second one-year contract for the current season last year.

Lopez -- who was similarly non-committal about returning to Idol at this time last year -- discussed her hesitancy to return for a third Idol season during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday.

"I really do enjoy it," she told DeGeneres, according to Billboard magazine.

"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 three, but now they're getting more mobile, they're about to go into school... So I just don't know.
