Steven Tyler wants a pay rise for ‘American Idol’ ?August 9th, 2011 - 3:47 am ICT by IANS
London, Aug 9 (IANS) “Aerosmith” rocker Steven Tyler reportedly wants his “American Idol” pay deal increased after learning that singer Jennifer Lopez is set to earn double his current fee for singing reality show.
JLo will get an estimated $20 million-a-year which is twice the “Crazy” hitmaker’s current salary.
“Jennifer’s management is close to brokering her a huge deal to come back to the panel for at least one more season, and but the side effect is that it means her fellow judges also want more money,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
“Steven is halfway through a two-year deal, and his management has asked for more money. They argue he was just as sensational and as popular on the panel as Jennifer. But, on the other side, show bosses argue he’s tied into a deal and has to stick to it. However, it’s hoped they can come to a compromise to keep Steven happy, because the producers love him,”the source added.
