JLo splurges weekly cheques on retail therapy

London: Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez is enjoying the perks of being on the judging panel of `American Idol` and indulges in shopping sprees as soon as she gets her hands on the weekly cheque.

The 41-year-old actress is happy with the regular income and indulges in a lot of retail therapy, reported a website.

"Jennifer always had money, but this is the first time in years she`s getting a weekly cheque. She`s a girl who loves to shop, and she is enjoying her riches and spending it on herself," said a source.

The `Maid in Manhattan` star who joined the show after the departure of comedian/talk show host Ellen Degeneres, is rumoured to have spent money on branded luggage, jewellery and presents for her husband Marc Anthony, and twins Max and Emme.

"She is a style icon who is expected to look great 24/7. And she does," added the source.

JLo has also been signed on as the new face of `Tous` jewellery and is fronting their Sping-Summer 2011 ad campaign, in addition to being a spokesperson for Venus razors.
