Page Six is reporting that Steven Tyler now wants to renegotiate his deal with Fox to match J.Lo’s new deal. Apparently Steven signed on for a two-year stint on Idol making $10 million a season, and now that J.Lo is close to renegotiating to make a rumored $20 million, Steven wants more money.
Two things–I absolutely think that Steven and J.Lo should make the same amount, but Steven shouldn’t have signed on for two years! He should have kept it on a year-by-year basis like J.Lo did. That way if both parties are unhappy, they can split…and if of course if everybody is happy they can renegotiate for more money. I’ll tell you this, if Steven feels like he’s being gypped there maybe some unwanted tension between Steven and J.Lo at the judges table.
