Jennifer Lopez out as 'American Idol' judge




While we're all waiting to see if Steven Tyler really is going to be one of the new American Idol judges, one thing we know for sure is that Jennifer Lopez is out of the running. We've got to think it was because she'd have to be on the panel with Steven Tyler.

Actually, the rumor is it's because she was too much of a diva. Who'da thunk? "Her demands got out of hand," a source tells People. "Fox had just had enough."

There's no other information on who would be considered for the panel, but our earlier scuttlebutt had everyone from Jessica Simpson to Courtney Love in the mix. Maybe they should have a spinoff show called Idol Hands, about the search for a new group of judges. We've got a copyright claim on that one now, Fox, so have your lawyers call our lawyers if you want to make a deal.
