Vogue magazine contributing editor Andre Leon Talley has quit his role as a judge on supermodel Tyra Banks' hit reality TV show America's Next Top Model.
Banks recruited the veteran trendsetter to join the series' judging panel last year, but he has now stepped down from the job after four seasons.
Talley insists rumors of a rift between himself and Banks are unfounded and they "remain friends", according to the New York Post's Page Six column.
He adds, "It's all good in the neighborhood. I had a fabulous time. It was a mutual agreement. There is no unhappiness at all."
The publication reports Talley will be replaced by fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone.
