Paula Abdul Drops Her Asking Price By 40%
"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul is playing hardball. She's threatening to walk away from the popular talent competition if she's not paid a living wage. She believes that's $20 million, which is $16 million more than what she currently makes. But, according to sources, she's since chopped her asking price from the $20 million to $12 million.
According to reports, the network made an offer, but Paula is still holding out for the big bucks, especially after hearing about the wages fellow judge Simon Cowell and host Ryan Seacrest are commanding.
Although auditions for the show's ninth season are set to begin in two weeks, Fox is not budging.
