Adam Lambert to Return to "American Idol" as Judge?

Barry King/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- The X Factor judges' table has already undergone a major makeover.  Could the American Idol panel be next?

E! News reports Fox has been in talks with Adam Lambert for over a month to serve as a new judge on Idol.  Lambert, of course, got his big break on Idol when he finished in second place during the 2008 season.

So why the need for Lambert on Idol?  Well, E! News reports that Jennifer Lopez does not intend to return to the show, though a source says, "I don't know if they can afford Jennifer, but they have let it be known that she has a guaranteed spot if she wants it."

Furthermore, E! News reports, the status of Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler on the show is also up in the air.

Report: Adam Lambert Arrested in Finland After Brawl with Boyfriend

Barry King/FilmMagic(HELSINKI, Finland) -- Adam Lambert was arrested in Finland Wednesday night after getting into a brawl with his boyfriend outside a bar, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lambert and his boyfriend Sauli Koskinen, a star of the Finnish version of Big Brother, reportedly started arguing inside a gay bar in Helsinki, but when they were kicked out of the establishment, they continued arguing in the street.  A woman who was hanging out with Lambert and Koskinen in the bar told a Finnish entertainment channel that when she tried to get between them to break up the fight, Lambert hit her by mistake.

When the police arrived, they took both Lambert and Koskinen into custody, and they were questioned and released on Thursday.  Afterwards, Koskinen wrote on his blog, in a comment that was translated from the Finnish by Google Translate, "Publicity is not easy, but also celebrities are just human. Love is not easy either, but it lasts forever!"

Lambert, who arrived in Finland on Dec. 19 to celebrate Christmas with Koskinen, has yet to tweet anything about the incident.
