Island Def Jam's topsy-turvy 2004 is not letting up. Island Records president/IDJ executive VP Julie Greenwald, who will go on maternity leave April 1, is expected to extend her leave and not return to the company, sources say. Meanwhile, Def Jam/Def Soul president Kevin Liles, who resigned last month, is now expected to reclaim his post.

A Universal Music Group spokesman had no comment.

This year has been an eventful one for the label group, which installed former Arista Records president/CEO Antonio "L.A." Reid as chairman of Island Def Jam last month. Reid replaced Lyor Cohen, who had exited the post three weeks earlier to become chairman/CEO of Warner Music Group's U.S. operations under Edgar Bronfman Jr.

Sources confirm that WMG is in talks with Greenwald to take a position at the major, which is undergoing restructuring.
