Terrence Davidson, the man behind Nicki Minaj's many hairstyles and wigs, has quit after three years of styling the rap star's hair. Davidson issued a statement about the split: "I would like to inform the media and supporters that I've decided to step away as hair stylist and wig creator for Nicki Minaj. It has been an amazing experience offering me a chance to express my creativity and exhibit my love for the art form of wig design.

I have decided to part ways from Nicki Minaj because I would like to explore other opportunities within my own brand and re-energize my creativity through work in fashion editorial, beauty consultations, media personality, 'how-to' lectures and hair show development."

Nicki makes her debut as an American Idol judge tomorrow night on Fox and we can't wait to see how she and Mariah get along. Could the Idol gig have something to do with the sad split? Davidson has nothing but praise for Nicki and says he's moving on to new challenges: "I am very proud of the body of work built with Nicki Minaj and I appreciate the support over the years from fans who've expressed love for my craft. Look forward to seeing me larger than life in 2013."

We have no idea who will be styling Nicki's hair and wigs going forward, days, but they have some big shoes to fill.
