"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to 'Idol,'" an insider told the celebrity news website, adding the rapper intends to concentrate on her next album, touring and celebrity endorsements.

"She's OK with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway."

The news comes after Minaj's fellow "Idol" judge Randy Jackson announced his departure at the end of this season.

Whether panelists Keith Urban and Mariah Carey remain will return next season remains unclear.
