Jennifer Lopez - Boyfriend Casper Smart Makes "Smart" Move To Confirm Singer's Return To Idol

Rumours that J-Lo will be returning to American Idol this fall have been swirling for months, but even after the Deadline announcement that the singer had reportedly signed a $15 million season deal, nothing had been confirmed by the singer or Fox. Now however, it seems that a source much closer to J-Lo has spilled the beans. During an interview discussing his own show A Step Away, Jen’s significant other, Casper Smart, made the sort-of announcement when probed about the singer’s possible involvement with Idol.

Is JLo returning to Idol? Signs point to yes.

Casper is a backing dancer for Lopez and, when questioned by E! he is said to have confirmed Lopez’s highly anticipated return. Of course, it would make sense for American Idol producers to try to get Lopez back on the show, considering that she was a fan favorite and that during her brief stint as a judge, Idol enjoyed some of its highest ratings since the beginning. Again according to E!, a source close to the Love Don’t Cost a Thing Singer mentioned that Lopez’s possible return to American Idol made perfect sense.

Boyfriend Casper Smart seems to think so, at least.

"Returning to American Idol makes sense for Jennifer this season," the source explained, adding that the American Idol gig would make fit Jen’s schedule nicely, allowing the star to juggle her career and motherly duties "as the show's schedule will allow her to focus on new film and TV projects" at the same time.
