Jennifer Lopez

I Might Return to 'Idol'

... I Might Not

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.

update_bar
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.”

JLo can go away forever. It's just another ploy to get more money. She sucks anyway.

This is another fake situation that's good for a fake show by fake people. It also helps in contract negotiations.

She's full of garbage. She and Steven Tyler were fired already this past spring. AI is letting the both of them announce that they "decided" not to return in order to save face.

what an ungrateful bitch. her career was in the toilet when she signed on to Idol. That show has single-handedly rehabilitated her career. If she leaves, she will have a couple more flop movies and bad albums and be washed up by the time she is 45.

she's qualified to judge the "Guadalupe from the Bronx" contest on the corner of 166th and Jerome...bytch needed to revive that lame "career" of hers and now she's either being fired or she feels like she's "back"...chick is and always be ghetto trash with too many ex husbands and 2 kids too many...actually, being a PR from da Bronx, she didn't do too bad - she only has 2 kids and they're from the same man - remarkable
