This isn't exactly brand new information, but now it's been made official.
The former judge says:
“I felt like I won the lottery when I joined American Idol two years ago, but I feel like now is the best time to leave Idol. I am very proud to have been associated with American Idol – it has truly been an amazing experience … I look forward to my next challenge, and want to thank everyone who has supported me. All the best to everyone on Season 10!”
Everyone knows that Kara's tired ass was fired from AI, so guess what? You ain't fooling anybody, honey!
