J-Lo to replace Ellen on American Idol

Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez did a little shopping on July 22, 2010 in Thousand Oaks, California with a bodyguard. Jennifer Lopez was dressed in a casual outfit in a pair of boyfriend style jeans, grey sweater and a pair of strappy animal print high heel sandals. In recent news Lopez might be facing a lawsuit as a hotel on the island of Cyprus plans to sue her for $40 million after she cancelled a concert threatened her. Lopez's spokesperson announced last week that the singer would not play the Cyprus scheduled for July 24, 2010 show because of sensitivity to the political realities of the region.

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly poised to take Ellen DeGeneres’ place on American Idol.

Ellen DeGeneres, the American comedian who replaced Paul Abdul on American Idol, is leaving after admitting the job didn’t “fit” her.

Although J-Lo hasn’t made an official announcement about taking the job it is believed that the deal has already been done. And at least the job didn’t go to Perez Hilton which actually felt like a possibility for a while.

The producers will also have to fill the seat vacated by Simon Cowell who left the show after nine series to focus on other projects.
