Nicki Minaj Cusses Out Mariah Carey on ‘American Idol’ Set (Video)
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey Fight on Camera
It was only a matter of time before she broke and today reports suggest that Nicki Minaj did just that. Minaj, 29, reportedly had enough of Mariah Carey’s diva behavior on the set of “American Idol” and finally snapped, on camera. TMZ has obtained video of the pink haired rapper going ballistic on the songstress during auditions today, Oct. 2, in Charlotte, N.C. According to the site, the two disagreed over a contestants’s performance and all hell broke loose. “I told them, I’m not f—kin’ putting up with her f–kin’ highness over there!” shouts Minaj in the video. Sources later say she swore at Carey and threatened, “I’m gonna knock you out!”
The video is especially juicy considering that both Minaj and Carey have denied reports that they’ve been feuding. “How are we gonna feud in two days?” said Carey. “A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that]. Minaj would later take to ABC’s “The View” where she described her time in the judge’s chair this way in a positive manner. “It’s going pretty good,” the rapper told the hosts. “You gotta watch and see. I look up to all of them. I worked with Mariah very early on in my career. I am grateful that she gave me that look very early on. She is really, really funny.”
