Jennifer Lopez Top Secret Meeting with Ryan Seacrest for American Idol Return?
American idol news and notes - Did former AI judge Jennifer Lopez attend a top secret meeting with show host Ryan Seacrest in hopes of returning to the show this fall?
A report claims Jennifer and Ryan had a meeting on the down-low in Beverly Hills just last week.
They tried to keep it a secret - but a chatty witness has reportedly blabbed.
An eyewitness told gossip website RadarOnline.com: "J.Lo was driven there by her regular driver. Ryan arrived simultaneously, and didn't look happy to have been spotted."
The 'Dance Again' hitmaker, who reportedly wants to have a baby with her boyfriend Casper Smart, 25, looks set to take back her seat on the judging panel when Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj - who quit the talent show last week to focus on their music careers - leave.
Her manager Benny Medina was previously said to have met with show bosses to discuss her potential comeback and it appears negotiations are now in the final stages.
A source recently said: "J.Lo's manager, Benny Medina, was in talks with FOX even before Mariah and Nicki announced their departures last week.
"Benny told FOX that she does indeed want to return. They're talking. Negotiations are in their infant stages, but they're underway to get her back to the judges' table."
The 'Live It Up' hitmaker is eager to settle down in Los Angeles, California, and has been looking at nurseries for her five-year-old twins, Max and Emme - her kids with third husband Marc Anthony.
A source said: "'Idol' allowed her to do that [move to Los Angeles].
"The twins will enter kindergarten in the autumn and stability is important for them - and J.Lo - at this time. She's looking for possible schools for the kids in Los Angeles at the moment."
Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson are also rumoured to be joining the judging panel when the show kicks off in the autumn.
