Jennifer Lopez took to Twitter last night to refute reports circulating yesterday claiming she would be leaving American Idol.

"There is no truth to reports that say I am definitely leaving Idol," the pop singer said. "All I said was I haven't decided what I am doing next year." 

She added: "When I know for sure what I'm doing I will let the#LOVE!RS know! #FYITweets."

The rumors started when, according to E!, a source said Lopez was "just too busy" to continue. Us Weekly also had sources telling them "There is just too much going on for her right now." While Fox declined to comment on the matter at the time, a source did tell E! that the network did not want to let her go, and that "they love her."

Lopez is set to embark on a 20-city tour through the U.S. and Latin America this summer, which will conflict with Idol auditions and pre-taping.
