Could Keith Urban be ready to call it quits on American Idol? According to the very dependable publication (cough, insert sarcasm here) The National Enquierer, Keith is tired of all the lady drama between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj and he wants out.
They don’t pay me enough to have to deal with this crap,” said Keith. Insiders say Keith told execs: “I don’t want to be the peacemaker this entire season” – and he’d be grateful if they’d replace him.
“Keith knew there’d be friction between the two women, but had no idea how vicious and threatening it would become,” said a source.
“What makes him uncomfortable is the level the animosity has escalated to – and where it could go from here. And his wife, NICOLE KIDMAN, is concerned as well.”
Although this “magazine” doesn’t usually make me think twice, this time it wouldn’t surprise me. Keith is a pretty low-key and laid back guy. Being sandwiched between two drama queens with an ax to grind doesn’t sound like a very appealing thing. Especially when I was so shocked to hear he’d signed-up for the gig in the first place.
