Looks like all those rumours surrounding the potential cat fight between newly christened American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are coming true. TMZ released footage of Minaj at the Idol judging table going ballistic on Carey, even threatening to knock her out.
It all went down in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday after a disagreement over a contestant’s performance. In the video, Nicki shouts: ”I told them I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f**kin’ highness over there.”
Mariah replies: ““Oh why, WHYYYY do I have a three year old sitting around me?” Carey goes on: “I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”
According to TMZ Nicki threatened to knock Mariah out before the video starts. I had a feeling Mariah would be a little dramatic this season but the only one who looks awful to work with in this video is Nicki.
Actually, the people I feel most sympathetic to in this situation are fellow judges Randy Jackson and Keith Urban, who have to put up with the bickering. In fact, Randy must be missing the days when notoriously vile (but probably a secret softy) judge Simon Cowell was on the panel.
