The NY Post claims Katy Perry’s $25 million American Idol salary caused problems for ABC when it came to signing other judges. A source tells the paper; “ABC was originally going to spend no more than $50 million on talent. They had to expand their budget for Lionel. ABC CEO Ben Sherwood blew the budget on Katy without thinking how that would impact other areas of the show budget. He gambled on her because of her appeal to a younger audience and huge social-media following. But Katy is effectively taking money from the other judges, who then had to be paid way less. The negotiations with Luke and Lionel have been fraught and difficult because of [Katy’s paycheck]. They expected similar deals to Katy, but are, in fact, getting a hell of a lot less. In the end, ABC had to cough up a second round of money to sign the other judges.”
Katy Perry has no plans to be nasty to American Idol singers like Simon Cowell. Contact Music quotes her as saying; ”I don’t think any of us believe in being nasty. What we believe in is being constructive, and giving constructive criticism. Because it doesn’t help anyone, and people are really sensitive, and we understand because we all walked into a room like that at one time in our life. The most challenging thing was trying to figure out was how to say ‘no’ to people at first.”

Otherwise, Rush Hour 4 we’re all old men. I tell Chris Tucker, ‘Before we get old, please do Rush Hour 4.'”

Ace Showbiz, citing Naughty Gossip, claims Simon Cowell is allegedly considering banning kids from America’s Got Talent. A source tells the sites; “This year the two finalists were children. Last year’s winner [Grace VanderWaal] was a kid too. The fear is that next year no one older than 15 will even bother auditioning. The most talented adult in America doesn’t stand a chance against a child with a homemade puppet. Now Simon is stepping in to fix the problem. It doesn’t take anything away from the folks that have already won, but next season is going to be very different with new rules.”

The Sun claims Lionel Richie has reached out to Kris Jenner to find out what kind of man Scott Disick is. Disick is dating Lionel’s daughter Sofia. A source tells the paper; “When Sofia dated Justin Bieber, she was 17 so Lionel could threaten to cut off her allowance. But now she’s an adult – and a successful model – he has less leverage. He and Sofia are very close, so he doesn’t want to push her away, but as he said – what dad wants their daughter dating Scott Disick? He’s been talking to Kris Jenner to find out what Scott’s really like, and begging for her help. She’s reassuring him that Scott is a good person. The last thing he wants is Sofia going off the rails. Although, Nicole went through a wild faze and she’s turned out stellar, so he’s trying to be optimistic. But he’s worried, he hates seeing her get negative publicity because of who she’s dating.”
Naughty Gossip claims Kevin Hart has increased his security following his cheating scandal. A source tells the site; “The last thing Kevin needs right now is a picture with another beautiful young lady that isn’t his wife.

If you are pretty and a woman you have more chance of getting into the Yankees’ locker room at the moment than getting close to Kevin Hart.”

A source tells Hollywoodlife.com; “Dwayne really has no time literally and figuratively over Tyrese‘s shade. Dwayne is going to do what he has to do for his life and career and the Fast movies are a part of everything and Tyrese needs to settle down. He thinks Tyrese is being petty but moving forward he will certainly talk about it. But he is mostly going to choose to be nice with his co-star. He doesn’t want to be a part of all the egos going around in the Fastfranchise. Dwayne wishes the cast would realize what they have and not be pains in the asses because even these movies will end and then what will they have?”
