Kara DioGuardi still has not been told about her reported American Idol axing, according to her New York state politician father.
In a new video interview, Joe DioGuardi said his daughter was upset with the way she has been treated.
“Would you believe that she did not hear and still has not heard anything?,” he told political talk show Capital Tonight.
“She read it the way you did and I did. In fact, her disappointment is that’s the way she’s being treated, and she feels that’s not proper.”
Jennifer Lopez was reportedly in the running to replace DioGuardi, but as RadarOnline.com reported, negotiations with the Jenny from the Block hit-maker have hit a snag.
With filming already underway, the show is still eyeing replacements for judges DioGuardi, Simon Cowell, who left the show to bring U.K. talent competition The X Factor stateside and afternoon talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres.
