Reality Weekly claims the producers of “The X Factor” are “chasing after American Idol’s Jennifer Lopez in hopes that she will jump ship” and join its singing competition show.
According to the tab, the “X Factor” team knows “they are going to have to top the $20 million [Lopez] gets on Idol,” but that’s OK with them, since the mag says “money is not an issue.”
The mag then quotes a fabricated “insider” as saying, “Simon loves playing his girls against each other and Britney and Jen will be battling for his approval as his favorite.”
This story is completely made-up by the ironically titled Reality Weekly.
In between laughing, a rep for Lopez told Gossip Cop the tabloid’s tale is “inaccurate.”
