    Amidst rumors that American Idol plans to clean house after Season 12 wraps, sole original judge Randy Jackson has revealed that he is leaving.

    "Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol, I have decided it is time to leave after this season. I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It's been a life changing opportunity but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures," the judge said.

    He also recently split with Mariah Carey as her manager.
