Pin It

Jennifer Lopez may not return to American Idol. Jennifer Lopez might be leaving American Idol... or not...

Right now, it sounds like things are up in the air about whether or not JLo will return next season to the judges table.

Idol host Ryan Seacrest sat down with Jennifer to get the scoop and it sounds like she's got a lot on her plate, plus she's making her kids a priority.

Does this mean Jennifer is leaving American Idol?

JLo tells Ryan, "I don't know. You know... I have some movie things in the works, and I have the tour... you know, I love the show. It hurts me to think about not doing it."

Being there for her twins "is the biggest part," as she explains, "I never want to take on too much where they ever feel cheated."

Jennifer and twins Max and Emme made it into our star family photo gallery:


"Everthing is kind of like...taking it day by day. I never make the decisions until it's time to make the decision," JLo told Ryan.

Sounds like we won't find out until the 11th hour.
