It all started on Tuesday after an argument broke out between the two stars on the set of American Idol when they disagreed over a contestant’s audition.
According to ABC, Carey told Barbara Walters in an interview this morning that as Minaj was walking off the Idol set, she was heard saying, “If I had a gun, I would shoot the b*tch.”
Minaj made no attempt to deny the statement and tweeted this afternoon, “Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it.”
Carey went on to tell Walters that she will continue on American Idol but she “doesn’t feel comfortable emotionally.” She doesn’t think anything will happen but has decided to hire extra security as a safety precaution because she is with her twins.
Despite producers of the show calling a meeting with Minaj and Carey on Wednesday to discuss the situation, Minaj told Carey after the meeting, “I love you but we might fight again.”
Minaj later took to Twitter saying, “I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn.” Sounds like we better get ready for round two!
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.
