Is Nicki Minaj About To Be Fired From American Idol?

October 05, 2012 12:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Earlier this week, a video was leaked of a disturbing fight between new American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, which caused Minaj to blow up, and even threaten to shoot Mariah. But will that threat cost Nicki Minaj her job on the judging panel?

Earlier this week, an explosive argument broke out on the set of the American Idol auditions between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. While some folks speculated that the blowup was simply done for the sake of ratings, it ended with Nicki Minaj accusing the producers and Mariah of conspiring against her, and even left her threatening to shoot Mariah. Come on, really? As the entire situation seems to be getting more out of hand, we can’t but wonder whether or not Nicki will have a job much longer.

She very well could be in danger of losing her spot on the panel, at least according to one Idol source. A show insider spoke to People Magazine recently and revealed: “On the day of the fight production staff were the only people in the room,” adding now that everyone knows what went down: “they are talking about firing Nicki. That is still up for debate. They are worried about how she will act during the live shows.”

Uh oh, that does not sound good for Nicki Minaj, however some folks say that she is not completely at fault here. “Mariah has been saying little things to jab at Nicki from day one of shooting. Mariah doesn’t think Nicki can sing and doesn’t think she should be judging folks. Nicki has been taking all of the jabs, but on this particular day she lost it,” another source explained.

Sorry folks, but we can’t say that we are surprised that these two divas are butting heads already. Why on earth the producers thought two big personalities would work well together is beyond our comprehension.

What do you think of the feud? Is this all a publicity stunt to boost ratings for the show? Or are Minaj and Carey really feuding? Sound off and tell us what you think by posting in the comments section below.

    Ms. Minaj is out of control and should be replaced. This negative behavior would get her expelled from school or fired from most jobs, right? American Idol is about the contestants, who should have the opportunity to be judged by role models in the industry. I don’t know if this is all a publicity stunt or not; but if AI has a chance to continue, I hope the producers will take a serious look at what past viewers are saying and take action that will once again make this singing competition about the contestants.

    I find it all a little bizarre. Just look up the video “Up out my face”, long before most knew who Nicki was, Mariah gave her a visible platform, rapping in the remix of up out my face. So I hardly think Mariah would claim Nicki can’t sing. I will say beefying up security is not becuz Mariah fears Nicki, but anyone of Nicki’s fans could take those comments seriously and Act out, Nicki’s fanbase is just as unstable as she is.

    Regardless of whether the fight was real or not, Nicki was out of pocket. In the video, she is too out of control. At the end of the day she should of been a little more professional than what she produced to the world. Now we get a tast of how Nicki really is in person. As a business person, I would never do business with a person that short fused.

    Get is together Nick….

    I have lost all respect for Mariah when she was fighting with the other rapper and made money off of it. She behaves like common street trash! You know that it was only a matter of time before she picked another fight with another rapper.

    I have been waiting for Minaj to be fired. I am not watching IDOL if she stays on. Her behavior was utterly ridiculous and I do not take threats lightly. That threat alone should have warranted her being fired. I do not care what Mariah told her. Paula and Simon disagreed often but you didn’t see anybody getting that irate and threatening to shoot somebody. Give me a break
