Is a brand-new American Idol showdown brewing between new judge Jennifer Lopez and host Ryan Seacrest?


As season-10 auditions get underway for the FOX hit, a new tabloid report claims that Lopez, 41, and Seacrest, 35, are already feuding behind the scenes -- bickering over dressing rooms, who gets top billing and more.

A source close to Lopez sets the record straight to "I don't know where they get this stuff! They've barely started work but are getting along great. They actually really like each other."

Alongside Randy Jackson and fellow newbie Steven Tyler, Lopez sat at the judges' table for the very first time earlier this week at auditions in New Jersey.
