Jennifer Lopez is Forbes most powerful celebrity in the world. She has a hot new movie coming out called What To Expect When You're Expecting, and now she's ready to leave American Idol and move on with her life.
The 42-year-old singer and actress told Ellen:
"I don't know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down."
A source close to the "Jenny From The Block" singer says she is indeed calling it quits.
"There is just too much going on for her right now," adding, "she regrets she can't stay on the show, it's been an incredible experience and she is forever grateful that she did it."
TMZ spoke with Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe, who hinted that there is going to be a struggle to keep J.Lo:
"We want her back. I want her back," adding, "I know how much she loves doing the show and how much she cares for the kids." That said, Nigel finished by stating, "It's a business. She has to weigh everything. I know she's gotten lots of offers to do movies and other things."
J. Lo is all but gone from Idol. Will you still watch without her?
