Nicki Minaj Threatens To Shoot Mariah Carey

October 05, 2012 06:00 AM by Donna W. Martin

Things have been heating up between new American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. But the situation just got ugly! Minaj takes it to a whole new level when she threatens to shoot Carey.

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.

    Nicki Minaj is a mess. What a crazy way to get interest in a show – one of the judges threatens to shoot another judge! Minaj should not be a judge – what does she really know about singing talent? Nada! How about getting some credibility on the panel instead of this crass rapper? Idol may have done itself in this time!

    Please spare me. Mariah has more class in her pinky finger. Plus she can sing her ass off. She might of married Mottola, but Dammit look where she is at now. Happily married and beautifull Kids. And she has staying power. I have every record she put out. I refuse to let my kids listen to (N.M.) not judging her start up in the idustry. But she will fade away. Lil Kim , foxxy Brown, ring a bell. im more interested in Mariah’s judgement than anyone elses. SHE CAN SING. SHE IS UP THERE WITH THE LEGENDS, THE LATE WHITNEY, PATTI, ARETHA, SHALL I GO ON.

    I hate to say it…but I will not be tuning in to watch anymore American Idol. Nicki Minaj? What were they thinking? I cannot believe she was the only one left to take the job. Was Marilyn Manson too busy? I wanted to see Keith and Mariah…but it sounds like crazy Minaj loves the sound of her own voice, and will grasp at straws to hog any camera time. She is an eyesore to look at, hurts the ears to listen to, and I just can’t bring myself to endure 1 to 2 hours of tv time that can be best wasted somewhere else. Sorry Idol. After all these years, you finally lost me.
