In one of the more bizarre stories involving a celebrities’ entourage, Nicki Minaj‘s hairstylist has quit the singer’s team, citing “creative differences.”
But in a surprising twist, Terrence Davidson issued a press release to announce the end of his working relationship with the American Idol judge after three years of service.
“Terrence Davidson most recently served as the celebrity hairstylist, wig creator and creative director for Nicki Minaj,” the release stated. “After creative differences, he has decided to pursue other opportunities.”
Davidson, who has also worked with Jennifer Hudson and Mary J. Blige, said he was leaving Minaj, 30, to “reenergize” his creativity.
“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 reenergize my creativity through work in fashion editorial, beauty consultations, media personality, “how-to” lectures and hair show development. I am very proud of the body of work built with Nicki Minaj and I appreciate the support over the years from fans who¹ve expressed love for my craft. Look forward to seeing me larger than life in 2013.”
A source close to Davidson told Celebuzz that he quit following “a series of derogatory statements” by the “Starships” singer and her management.
Minaj has had a tempestuous relationship with many of her staff, according to reports.
Minaj reportedly unleashed a vicious tirade on a facialist in 2011.
“After I waxed her eyebrows and lip, she started screaming “Who the f**k do you think you are?”
Dawn DaLuise said, in an interview, “Look what you did to my damn face! You think this sh*t is worth 170 dollars?”
Fear not, though: Terrence’s work on Minaj will still be seen through the month of February when she appears on the American Idol tapings, the release said.
