Girl Fight: Nicki Minaj Cusses Out Mariah Carey at Auditions [Video]
Rucuss staffOctober 3, 2012
Rumors of American Idol judges’ Nicki Minaj and singer Mariah Carey not getting along are true.
Auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina were canceled on Tuesday after Minaj reached her boiling point and lashed out at Carey. Sources told TMZ that Minaj told Carey, “I’m gonna knock you out.” The disagreement was over a contestant’s performance. Carey allegedly kept interrupting Minaj while she was giving her critique.
“Nicki Minaj walked off of set because Mariah Carey kept making jabs at her,” a source told MouthtoEars. “Nicki’s manager and team convinced her to come back to the show. Mariah kept at it and called Nicki a bitch and then proceeded to cuss her out. Producers had to stop filming and call it a night.”
TMZ obtained video of some of the argument between Minaj and Carey. Minaj appears to be furious in the clip yelling,”I told them, I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f*ckin’ highness over there.”
Country singer Keith Urban looks uncomfortable between the two while they exchanged words. Urban eventually tried to cool things down before Randy Jackson got up to help. Producers are worried that Minaj and Carey may not be able to coexist on the show.
Minaj is allegedly an innocent victim in the feud. Carey is the one who kicked off the tension when she found out Minaj was joining the show. She allegedly hung up on producers when they called to give her the news. She was upset because she was told she would be the only woman on the panel. Carey wanted producers to hire Lenny Kravitz instead of Minaj.
”Up until the rumors, I didn’t think there would be a problem because she and I had worked together,” Minaj told The Kyle and Jackie O radio show. “I had so much genuine love for her and respect for her, I was shocked hearing the rumours as well.”
Here’s what was said in argument on video:
Nicki: ”You think I’m playing. Think it’s a joke! Think its a f*cking joke?? Say one more disrespectful thing to me- say one more disrespectful thing to me.”
Randy: “Time out! Time Out!”
Nicki: Don’t tell me I’m inadequate. Maybe you’re inadequate, you’re insecure running down your resume every five minutes. Every time you take a shot at me, Imma take it back and if you’ve got a f-cking problem, handle it.
Mariah “Oh Why, why, why do I have a three-year old sitting around me?”
Nicki: “I told them I’m not f-cking putting up with your f-cking highness over there. I’m not sitting here for 20 minutes and have her run down her resume every five minutes, every day.”
Mariah: “I couldn’t see my kids because you decided to have a little baby fit and go all around the stage.”
Nicki: “Good! Go! Go see them now, go. You’re boring as f-ck.”
