Things are heating up in the Nicki vs. Mariah ‘American Idol’ rivalry.
Earlier today Nicki Minaj caught wind that Mariah Carey accused her of making death threats after their spat earlier in the week during an ‘Idol’ audition. In fact, Mariah confessed, in an exclusive interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, that Nicki threatened to shoot her.
According to Mariah multiple people heard fellow judge Nicki Minaj say, “If I had a gun, I would shoot the b***h”, Barbara Walters stated today on the ‘View’.
Walters continued, “ [Mariah] doesn’t feel comfortable emotionally” but will continue with the show and has hired extra security.
Carey, 42, told Walters the altercation between the judges began when they disagreed on a contestant’s audition Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C.
The judges had a meeting with producers Wednesday to discuss the altercation. After the meeting, Minaj told Carey, “I love you but we might fight again,” to which Carey responded, “No, we will not,” Walters said.
