Jennifer Lopez's husband is reportedly the reason why the American Idol judge may not return to the show and reprise her role.

Singer Marc Anthony has been insisting his wife of seven years should make her first Idol season her last and spend more time with their kids, InTouch Weekly reported in its July 4 issue, presumably sparking Lopez's recent claims that she's been "on the fence" about gracing the judging panel again next season.

"Jennifer signed a one-year contract with an option to renew," a source told InTouch. "She's ready to commit to a few more seasons because she loves the job and the money, but Marc wants her to quit so she can spend more time with him."

Lopez and fellow Idol judge Steven Tyler both joined American Idol as part of last season's judging-panel shakeup. However, unlike Tyler -- who signed a multi-year-contract -- Lopez's judging deal was only for one season, prompting speculation that her "on the fence" comments may just be a negotiation tactic.

According to reports, the singer and actress received $12 million to serve as a member of Idol's tenth-season judging panel.
