Gossip: Katy Perry Getting $25 Million to Judge ‘American Idol’; JLo In Charge Of Her Relationship With A-Rod

Everyone may be laughing at Katy Perry’s ‘SNL’ performances, but Ms. Katy’s laughing all the way to the bank!

According to reports, the singer is getting a cool $25 million to judge the new ‘American Idol.’

via TMZ:

Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, “Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they’d be screwed.”

TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that ‘A.I.’ was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network’s $20 mil offer.

As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC’s “The Voice.” NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.

We’re also told ABC is “on the verge” of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of ‘Idol’ tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point.

JLO Is In Charge Of Her Relationship With A-Rod

A source says, “Jennifer is aware of his past womanizing ways, so she wants to make sure she’s in control ….. She has him on a very tight leash …. Jennifer is wearing the pants in the relationship!”

The insider adds that he texts his whereabouts to Jennifer’s assistant when they’re not together! Sounds like a healthy start LOL!
