American Idol is about to start Season 13, and if anyone out there believes that the number 13 is unlucky, they may have a bit more proof now.

E! News broke the news on Friday evening that J.Lo's boyfriend, Casper Smart (insert less-than-smart jokes here), had accidentally revealed the news. When he was asked whether his girlfriend would be back on American Idol, he replied with a simple "Yes."

Now, before everyone starts jumping all over Mr. Smart, it's important to know that apparently the poor guy thought that Fox had already made the announcement and he didn't think he was doing anything but confirming it. Unfortunately, that hasn't turned out to be the case, and as of right now, Fox has no comment on the news.

Another source told E! News that going back to AI would be a smart move for J.Lo.

"Returning to American Idol makes sense for Jennifer this season," the source said, adding that "the show's schedule will allow her to focus on new film and TV projects" at the same time."

And, of course, her twins are starting school this year and she will have time for her family."
