It seems that USA’s American Idol Season 12 got off to a rocky start as two judges, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, supposedly showed how much they disliked each other.
Tuesday auditions at Charlotte, North Carolina, saw a huge blow-up that led to the filming’s cancelation. Based on reports, as quoted by the Mail Online, Nicki Minaj is said to have threatened Mariah saying: “I'm gonna knock you out.”
It is believed that the feud started due to a disagreement over a contestant’s performance.
A source told the Mail Online: “Nicki Minaj walked off of set because Mariah Carey kept making jabs at her. Nicki’s manager and team convinced her to come back to the show. Mariah kept at it and called Nicki ‘a b****’ and then proceeded to cuss her out. Producers had to stop filming and call it a night.”
In a video uploaded by TMZ, Minaj was allegedly heard saying: “I told them I'm not f*****g putting up with her f*****g highness over there [Referring to Mariah]. Figure it the f*** out. Figure it out.”
Although Mariah can be heard answering back, it is understood that it was very difficult to make out exactly what she was saying.
According to previous reports, Mariah didn’t want Nicki to join the panel as she was worried that the Super Bass singer would turn it into a freak show.
Nicki, on the other hand, is believed to have previously labeled Mariah as her 'f*****g highness'. Sources told the Mail Online that it’s very apparent that the two ladies do not like each other.
