At the same time, the source has also stated that the seven-figure deal was signed by the former “American Idol” judge in spring when it had been announced that she would associated with the American edition of U.K.’s “Got To Dance” both as a judge as well as an executive producer. Given the circumstances, it’s a known fact that if Paula Abdul decides to make a comeback on “American Idol,” she can might have to face legal actions from the CBS officials.

Meanwhile, it has also been reported that the contract that Paula Abdul has signed with CBS spans across five years which means that the 48-year-old record producer is bound exclusively to the network.
