Jennifer Lopez

I Might Return to 'Idol'

... I Might Not

7/12/2012 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez is telling friends ... she HAS NOT made up her mind on her future with "American Idol" ... and WILL NOT make a decision until after she finishes her current concert tour with Enrique Iglesias.

There are reports Jennifer has already informed producers she's a no-go to return to the judge's table next season ... but sources close to J.Lo tell us the reports are absolutely not true.

We're told Jennifer wants to "see where things are in her life" when the concert ends.

Translation: If Jen's popularity is UP after the tour and she has more options, she's more likely to bounce off the show. If she's not ... "Idol" ain't a bad fallback gig.

It wouldn't be the first time J.Lo waited 'til the last minute -- last year, she held out until late August and finally gave in when producers reportedly agreed to fork over $20 mil for a 1-year deal.

Lopez appeared on the "Today" show this morning ... and said she's "torn" about the decision ... but notes, "I think it’s time for me to go.”

She's waiting to get a look at the male dancers they entertain the crowd with before the show starts.

Of course it's about $$$, what else would it be? She'll grab another $20+ mil, she's not getting any younger and she's got college for the kids down the road...

Tired of this game - just get rid of her. She doesn't help the show anyway.

This is a yearly occurence with her. I think she's holding out for more money only because she wants to have a higher salary than Spears.

I wouldn't care one bit if she was dropped. She has over-saturated the market so much that I can't even bear to watch her anymore in anything she does.

Wake up Fox! Jennifer is simply holding out for more money. Save your cash and bring in somebody else. J-Lo is tired, old and completely overrated as an enterainer/judge/hottie/etc.

Three new judges would be great. One country music star . One pop. One R & B. waiting on Jennifer holds things back. You think any employer will wait on a ne w employee tos ee if things will work out for them and this job will be their last resort. Celebrities are a bunch of spoiled self serving ,over paid brats.
