Jennifer Lopez 'Wants To Beat Britney's Pay'

J.Lo is reported to be ready to bargain hard to return to American Idol...

We told you just the other day how Britney Spears had reportedly held out for a bigger pay packet to appear on The X Factor USA than Jennifer Lopez got in her first year on American Idol.

Well now it's been reported that J.Lo is demanding that her pay for the next series of Idol is more than the $15m that Britters is getting for the US version of Simon Cowell's flagship show.

A source told Hollywood Life: "J.Lo and American Idol are striving for headlines. Along with it being 'strictly business', she is also for sure wanting more money than Britney Spears to return.

"She is not signed for next year but nothing is better in [executive producer] Nigel [Lythgoe's] eyes than people talking about American Idol and who the judges will be all summer. Look what it did with The X Factor!"
