Well, well. American Idol’s judges’ feud may have finally gotten to Mariah Carey.
The singer is reportedly leaving the show, following ongoing tensions with fellow judge Nicki Minaj.
A source revealed that Mariah not only wants to leave the show, but she doesn't even want to try to finish out this season:
“Mariah doesn’t want to come back, Nicki is really disrespecting her and she’s tired of trying to bite her tongue all the time… One night Nicki tried to be kind of nice, but Mariah didn’t bite, so I guess she figured screw that.”
Though, it seems Mariah’s decision to leave is not solely based on Nicki. The source added:
“She’s done with it all. She doesn’t need the platform, and all the drama isn’t healthy for her… She’s also under fire with the producers for not being critical enough of the contestants.”
This could all very well be one BIG publicity stunt as Fox’s reps have not confirmed her departure. Neither has Mariah's. However, this could open HUGE doors for Jennifer Lopez, who’s been vying for a seat back on the panel!
Only time will tell!
