Unless you’ve been living under Wendy Williams’ wig, you have definitely heard about Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s verbal showdown on the set of ‘American Idol’. However, additional details about their fight have surfaced and the information comes via Carey herself.
Carey spoke exclusively to Barbara Walters of ‘The View’ about her war of words with Minaj and stated that she has been left “emotionally uncomfortable” following the shocking incident. The diva expressed that she became increasingly concerned for her own safety and even hired extra security after her team reported that they heard Minaj scream, “if I had a gun I would shoot that bitch.”
Nigel Lythgoe of the ‘American Idol’ production team told TMZ, “the statement [that Minaj made a death threat] is absolute rubbish. It’s absolutely not true in any way, shape or form.” Regardless, Carey has confirmed that she will continue as a judge on the show, and when Minaj told her that they will probably fight again, Carey responded, “no, we will not.”
