Keep the rumor mill churning.

Since Ellen DeGeneres announced she was stepping down from the "American Idol" judges' table, numerous celebrities' names have surfaced as possibilities for the new panel. Jennifer Lopez was rumored to be close to finishing a deal, but according to People.com, Jenny From the Block is out.

“Her demands got out of hand,” a source told the magazine. “Fox had just had enough.”

Reps for the show had no comment.

Lopez had been rumored to join Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and original "Idol" judge Randy Jackson at the judges' table.

Tyler, when asked about being a judge on the show, told cameras on July 31, "I'm probably going to be a judge on 'American Idol.' I'm doing it."

Various reports in recent weeks have also named Jessica Simpson, Chris Isaak, Harry Connick Jr. and Justin Timberlake as possible "Idol" judges.
