Seems like JLo’s boyfriend Casper Smart has spilled the beans about her return to American Idol. When asked if Lopez was returning as a judge, Casper confirmed to E! online that yes, she is in fact returning. It wasn’t such a smart move for Casper, as he wasn't aware that FOX had not officially made the announcement on Jenny’s return to the show. Another source says that it makes sense for Jennifer to return this season, as the show’s schedule will allow her to focus on new film and TV projects, and of course her twins are starting school this year and she will have time for her family.
