American Idol reps are claiming the show made Paula Abdul two offers before she went and quit via tweet. TMZ says Paula was pulling in somewhere between $2 and $3 million a year and apparently that wasn’t enough. AI reps made her an offer, Paula countered but producers didn’t want to pay that much, so they countered another offer.
Instead of responding to the second offer, Paula let her emotions get the better of her and tweeted her goodbye. Wait it gets better! AI took the tweet seriously and responded, see-ya!
Is it really that shocking that Paula made it difficult to negotiation? AI says to make this situation more difficult wasn’t Paula herself but how she changed management twice.
Word on the street is producer Nigel Lythgoe has given her a standing offer to be a guest judge on “So You Think You Can Dance.” Yay! The crazy drug induced banter isn’t over!!!
