Earlier this week on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Jennifer Lopez said she doesn't know if she'll return to "American Idol" next season. There are now multiple reports claiming she will in fact leave the Fox competition.

A source told  E! News that J-Lo is "just too busy" to continue with "Idol." Similarly, an insider who spoke to Us Weekly said, "There is just too much going on for her right now."

Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres this week that she's unsure of her "Idol" future in part because she has her 4-year-old twins to consider. She also has a summer tour with Enrique Iglesias on the horizon.

"American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is keeping his fingers crossed that J-Lo will commit to another season of the show. He told  TMZ.com, "We want her back. I want her back."
