Jennifer Lopez’s rumored $20 million American Idol contract is causing some friction among the other judges. The New York Post reported that Steven Tyler, who is halfway through a two-year deal worth about $10 million a year, wants a raise after hearing that Lopez might make twice as much as him next season. A source told the paper, “Steven is halfway through a two-year deal, and his management has asked for more money. They argue he was just as sensational and as popular on the panel as Jennifer. But, on the other side, show bosses argue he’s tied into a deal and has to stick to it. However, it’s hoped they can come to a compromise to keep Steven happy, because the producers love him.”Randy Jackson has also said that he’s committed to another year, but there’s no information about his current salary. Despite recurring reports that Lopez is on the verge of signing her deal, her spokesperson told the Post, “Talks are ongoing — she has nothing to announce as yet.”
