American Idol Drama: Nicki vs Mariah

American Idol Drama Nicki vs Mariah3

Looks like it’s a battle of the divas over on American Idol. A video is making its rounds on the Internet showcasing Minaj having it out with Mariah Carey. In the video shot Tuesday during auditions in Charlotte, N.C., Nicki clad in head-to-toe pink can be heard yelling “If you’ve got a f–king problem, handle it!” The video which was obtained by TMZ also reported that Nicki leater threatened to “knock [Carey] out.” The video continues with Nicki turning to Mariah and saying “I told them, I’m not putting up with her f–king highness over here” meanwhile Keith Urban who was sitting in between them tries to calm the hip-hop singer down. On the other hand Randy Jackson who was sitting on Carey’s other side didn’t seem to get involved. Idol producer FremantleMedia had nothing to say about the reported drama, and reps for all three new judges have not responded to requests for comment. But an Idol source did speak out to E! News  stating; “This is the sort of thing producers considered might happen when they cast Nikki opposite Mariah, but not this bad and not this fast. They have to protect Mariah to make sure she doesn’t walk. After everything it took to get that panel in place, they need everyone, especially Mariah. She was their first choice.”  As for Minaj’s threat towards Carey the source adds, “Physical threats are taken seriously and [show producers and Fox execs] are still deciding how to handle. It’s not an easy call.”
