The singer and actress had reportedly originally asked for $15 million and an overall deal that would include a big-screen movie and television pilots and threatened to pull out of Idol if Fox and the show's producers didn't meet her demands -- resulting in last month's reports that the negotiations had fallen apart and Fox was moving on to other candidates.
"[Lopez's team] was pissed that the Idol producers never discussed ahead of time their decision to offer a judging job to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler," Deadline reported.
Although complete, the formal announcement of Lopez's Idol addition is reportedly being delayed until later this month to coincide with the mid-September release of the new first single from her upcoming new album.
