Paula Abdul Leaves American Idol Over Money!

Filed under : Celebrity News

paula-abdul-leaves-american-idolLoyal American Idol fans may be disappointed to hear that American Idol judge favorite Paula Abdul will not be returning to the show next season as contract negotiations did not go as she’d hoped.

Abdul was going to receive a 30 percent increase over last season (earning her eight figures) but that just wasn’t enough for the controversial star.

Paula confirmed her departure on her Twitter page, where shocked fans lent their support. Even Idol host Ryan Seacrest expressed his sadness and shock via his Twitter account.

“About to go to sleep when I started seeing my blackberry blow up. I have read what u have read and I am shocked and saddened about paula,” Ryan said in his Tweet.

Many are wondering whether Paula’s announcement is a plea for more money (and publicity and outrage) or if she seriously doesn’t plan on returning next season.

Paula’s crazy behavior combined with her and fellow judge Simon Cowell’s undeniable chemistry will be greatly missed on the show. New Idol addition Kara Dioguardi will be remaining on the show – but was she enough of a hit with fans to keep the ratings up? Only time will tell.

We’re opening the floor up to true Idol fans – Who would you prefer to stay on the show: Paula or Kara?

    Who thinks Chrystal Bowersox will be the 2010 American Idol? I hope so as her most recent performance was brilliant and one of the finest performances I have ever heard on the show.
