According to The New York Post, there has been trouble in relationship paradise for the ex-American Idol judge and his girlfriend of five years this fall, but "it's over for good this time," as Tyler vacationed in Hawaii over New Year's… without Brady.

"Steven was just not that nice to her in the end," a source says of Tyler. "His family and entourage never really accepted her and she can do better."

The insider adds that Steven and Erin remain "friendly," but let there be no doubt: "The engagement is off."

In a new interview with Canadian talk show eChat, Steven Tyler calmly addresses the charges of racism leveled at him this week by Nicki Minaj.

The latter artist went off on Twitter this week after Tyler randomly said the American Idol Season 12 judging team would send Bob Dylan home if he were to audition in front of them.

Minaj took major exception to the comment, chalking it up to bitterness on the part of Tyler.

"I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki…  I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist," Tyler says in the following video.

Watch the full response now:

Her feud with one American Idol judge on pause, Nicki Minaj has moved on to a former American Idol judge.

In an interview over the weekend with MTV News, Steven Tyler was asked for his take on the American Idol Season 12 judging panel - and he held little back in his response.

After first mocking the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey mess, Tyler said of the former:

"If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield. Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying."

The opinion didn't sit well with Minaj.

American Idol producers have come out and assured fans that all is good with the show's judging panel.

But Steven Tyler doesn't believe the public statement was necessary... because the entire Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj feud is total BS, according to the former panelist.

Asked by TMZ whether he thought the confrontation this week between singers was contrived for publicity, Tyler responded "of course."

And when asked when he would be returning to the Fox competition, Tyler scoffed and made it clear: NEVER.

What do you think of the Idol feud? Is it legitimate?

When Steven Tyler departed American Idol last month, he said in a statement that he "loved every minute" of the experience.

But in a new Rolling Stone interview, the rocker sounds a very different tune.

“It was something to do while the storm blew by, to be honest,” Tyler tells the magazine, adding that he joined the panel mainly due to spats with his Aerosmith bandmates at the time.

Once he was actually on board, the singer says Idol just was “not [his] cup of tea.”

Tyler has nothing negative to say about Randy Jackson or Jennifer Lopez - or about taking home $10 million per year, we're guessing - but he really didn't enjoy criticizing aspiring artists.

“The show’s about kids and what you do to nurture their talent," he said. "They wanted me to take the piss out of the kids and I don’t have that in me. That’s not what I’m about.”

American Idol, of course has moved on from Tyler and from J. Lo. Mariah Carey has signed on, with Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams both rumored to join her.

Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez may be gone from American Idol, and chatter may already be buzzing over their replacement (Adam Lambert? Mariah Carey? Aretha Franklin?), but these judges will never be forgotten.

By their now-former co-star at least.

Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez

"Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I've worked with," Jackson told Gossip Cop in a statement. "I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life."

Lopez confirmed her departure to Ryan Seacrest on Friday, while Tyler released his own statement earlier in the week.

There's been talk that the series is now looking to start over and will next give Jackson the axe.

What do YOU think, THGers? Which of the following stars would you most want to see as a Season 12 judge?

American Idol judge Steven Tyler is leaving his seat at the table. The news comes just hours after Jennifer Lopez announced her plans to leave Idol on The Today Show.

With Tyler leaving and Lopez threatening to do the same, the judges table looks mighty bare.

Tyler says the decision was made in order to focus on his band Aerosmith. "The next two years are dedicated to kicking some serious ass," the singer said in a statement. And he means business, as Aerosmith has a new album and tour all lined up.

So who take over Tyler's spot? Adam Lambert is rumored as a possible replacement.

Other possible American Idol season 12 judges include Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj.

Steven Tyler stole the spotlight for a few moments on American Idol last night, announcing that he and Aerosmith will be hitting the tour this summer for the band's first tour since 2009.

"We're calling the tour the Global Warming Tour," Tyler said like only he can. "Because of the fire. Yo tengo el fuego."

Joe Perry and Steven Tyler

Earlier in the day, Tyler gathered at the Grove in Los Angeles - along with bandmate Joe Perry - and also revealed that the legendary group will release a new album - its first in eight years - some time later this year.

"We've been underground for four months, doing what we do best," said Tyler, adding that they're two songs away from completion on the CD.

But back to the tour: it will kick off on June 16 in Minneapolis, Cheap Trick will open and tickets go on sale tomorrow. Sounds like Amazing news to us! We aren't Cryin upon hearing it! And we Don't Wanna Miss a Thing when it comes to Aerosmith!

Jennifer Diley auditioned for American Idol in San Diego Sunday - on an episode that will be replayed at 8 p.m. tonight on Fox - and did not make the Hollywood cut. Case closed, right?

Not so much.

The aspiring singer, who donned a tube top and very short shorts, has gone public with complaints over producers forcing her to choose from a list of "flirty" songs. (She ended up covering "With You" by Jessica Simpson and "Hero" by Mariah Carey, neither of which she had rehearsed.).

Diley is also apparently mad at Steven Tyler because he supposedly told her off-air that he loved her outfit... and then remained silent while she was mocked for it during the audition. The nerve!

Informed off this random complaint, Tyler's manager told TMZ: "You are telling me some provocatively dressed woman is claiming Steven Tyler flirted with her? I am shocked."

As for auditions of people who can actually sing, we recommend fans keep an eye on Ashley Robles. She has serious potential.

Steven Tyler spends the bulk of his time these days critiquing aspiring artists.

But the Aerosmith frontman/American Idol panelist is the one facing harsh judgment today, as is performance of the national anthem prior to the 2012 AFC Championship game is being met with severe rebuke.

"Steven Tyler far more obscene than Janet Jackson's t*tty," Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock Tweeted of the rendition, comparing it to another famous, scandalous moment in NFL playoff lore.

Was the song really that abysmal? Decide for yourself:
