'American Idol' judge, Mariah Carey is reportedly planning to quit the singing reality show as she is finding it difficult to work with her co-judge Nicki Minaj.

A source revealed to Fox News that Carey doesn't want to come back, as Minaj is really disrespecting her and she is tired of trying to bite her tongue all the time, Contactmusic reported.

The source insisted that the mum-of-two is done with the show and doesn't need the platform anymore.

The source also said that all the drama isn't healthy for Carey.

The insider added that the 'Hero' singer is also unhappy with the producers for not being critical enough of the contestants.

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, who was a judge on the show for two seasons, recently urged Carey and Minaj to be professional and focus on the contestants (ANI)
