E! is reporting that J.Lo is planning on leaving American Idol after this season.
"She's just too busy," a source says.
Lopez hinted that quitting the series might be in her future during a May 15 interview on "Ellen." When asked by DeGeneres, herself a former "Idol" judge, whether she'll return for a third season, Lopez says, "I don't know...I enjoy it. I really do enjoy it. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down."
FOX has not commented publicly on this report. However a source close to the production says, "FOX does not want to let her go. They love her."
