Jennifer Lopez to return to American Idol?

A new meeting between Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacreast on Friday has refueled rumors that the singer may be returning to American Idol.

RadarOnline reports Lopez and her management have been in talks with Idol producers since before Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj recently announced their exits from the show.

“Benny [Medina, J. Lo’s manger] told FOX that she does indeed want to return,” a source told RadarOnline. “They’re talking. Negotiations are in their infant stages, but they’re underway to get her back to the judges’ table.”

Sources say Lopez wants to be grounded in Los Angeles and have a settled life for herself and her five-year-old twins, Max and Emme, as they prepare to go to kindergarten.

“Idol allowed her to do that,” a source said. “The twins will enter kindergarten in the Fall and stability is important for them – and J.Lo – at this time. She’s looking for possible schools for the kids in Los Angeles at the moment. Plus, if she’s living in L.A. full-time she will be able to focus on her film career and other ventures, including her fashion business.”

Lopez performed on the American Idol season finale last month; the singer was joined by Pitbull for their collaboration on her current single, “Live It Up,” marking her first appearance on the series since wrapping up her judging duties at the end of the previous season.
