Deadline reported earlier this month that Jennifer Lopez had reached an agreement on the major deal points to re-join Fox’s American Idol as a judge on its upcoming 13th season. An announcement was expected from the network, but it may have been Lopez’s boyfriend Casper Smart who unwittingly did the honors. Speaking to E!
