Although Minaj has not officially announced her rumored departure, she has, according to an unidentified show insider, been noncommittal about signing up for another season with the show.

The once-flagship Fox program now has ratings that are worse than last year’s. An “Idol” insider reprotedly told Us Weekly about Minaj’s plans, “It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back…. She’s okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway.” The spokesperson also mentioned that Minaj just wanted to focus on her singing career.

With Minaj’s reported departure, the show would be left with songstress Mariah Carey and Keith Urban as its judges.

During Minaj’s time on the show, she has been at odds with fellow judge Carey, with the women even resorting to unabashed name-calling on Twitter.

As far as the other two judges, Carey and Urban, mum’s the word as to whether they will return to their respective judging gigs for Season 13.
