Jennifer Lopez is no longer in consideration to join the judging panel on reality TV show American Idol due to her escalating demands, according to new reports.

The singer/actress was named alongside Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler as possible replacements for exiting judges Ellen DeGeneres and Simon Cowell.

But talks have now broken down between Lopez and Fox network executives and she has been dropped from plans for the upcoming 10th season, reports People.com.

A source says, “Her demands got out of hand. Fox had just had enough.”

Tyler, who has confirmed he has met with TV bosses, has emerged as a strong contender to sit on the panel with existing judge Randy Jackson, while the rest of the line-up remains a mystery.
