Report: Nicki Minaj to leave 'American Idol'

Listen to Nicki Minaj on iHeartRadio

"American Idol" is going through some major changes lately. It was just announced that Randy Jackson is leaving the talent competition show after 12 seasons, sparking rumors that the rest of the judges panel would soon get the boot. Now, Us Weekly is reporting that Nicki Minaj has made the decision to leave "American Idol" as well.

An insider tells Us Weekly"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," adding that the "Roman Holiday" rapper will instead focus on her next album, and touring, among other ventures. The insider says, "She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway."

The remaining judges, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban, haven't said anything about their future on the show yet.
