The Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey beef is very real.
The “American Idol” auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina yesterday came to a halt after judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey buck heads. The fight started over a contestant performance that the two divas disagreed on.
In a video obtained by TMZ, a very furious Nicki Minaj told the music icon to get off her high… you know what.
“Don’t lose your head. Don’t tell me I’m a gangster! So every time you patronize me, I’m-a take it back, and if you’ve got a f—ing problem, handle it!” Nicki Minaj rant
“I told them, I’m not f—ing putting up with her f—ing highness over there. I’m not gonna sit here every f—ing minute to have you come down and harass me every minute every day,” Minaj continued.
“I’m gonna knock you out!” Nicki Minaj threatened.
Other sources claimed that the fight was started by Mariah Carey who took a few jabs at Nicki Minaj while she was making her case after the contestant performed.
Fellow judge Randy Jackson tried to intervene to cool the tension.
“Settle down, settle down,” Randy Jackson told Nicki Minaj.
