Since joining the FOX reality show eight months ago, Lopez has enjoyed a career resurgence — her latest album “Love?” sold well, her single “On The Floor” hit No. 1 on iTunes in 18 countries and People magazine named her The Most Beautiful Woman in the World.
So it should seem like a no-brainer that Lopez will return for Season 11, right? Wrong. Lopez has yet to sign on for next season and tells FOX411, “It’s too early to tell.” The 41-year-old is said to be in contract negotiations with FOX.
Steven Tyler will definitely be returning (alongside original judge Randy Jackson) for Season 11 as he signed a multi-year contract, which earned him a reported $18 million for Season 10 alone. Lopez reportedly signed for $12 million.
Earlier this week, FOX chief Peter Rice said, “Everyone has multiple-year contracts. Jennifer has [a] single-year contract. We loved having her — the hope and expectation is she’ll return.”
