Jennifer Lopez Is Also Leaving American Idol

Jennifer Lopez confirms to Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS LA morning radio show that she is ALSO leaving American Idol. Steven Tyler announced his departure on Thursday.

After two years as a judge of the hit Fox television show Jennifer says, “The time has come.”

“I really have been torn,” says Jennifer, “I fell so in love with the show…I didn’t know I would be moved so emotionally…”

“I have my movies and my music…but it gets more complicated…as the kids get bigger. Something has to give,” she says, “I think, that’s where I am right now.”

“I could just keep doing Idol for the rest of my life, but that would be giving up a bunch of things,” Jennifer added, “We had an amazing run.”

“No matter what you guys need over there, I’m always here.”  Jlo is NOT ruling out appearing as a mentor once in a while.

Jennifer choked up as she discussed making the difficult decision, and swears it had nothing to do with money.
