Well this just keeps getting juicier and juicier!
Mariah Carey shared her side of the story of her fight with Nicki Minaj on the American Idol set with ABC’s Barbara Walters. Walters served up the post-footage dish on Thursday’s “View.” Watch a clip from the interview below.
Carey said that she was worried because when “Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch,’ ” Walters told viewers.
“Nicki is unpredictable,” Walters said, quoting Carey. “Mariah says she can’t take a chance and she has hired extra security,” Walters said. “Nicki has not apologized, but they have since been at meetings with producers and judges.”
After a meeting Wednesday, Minaj said she loved Carey but warned they might fight again, Walters reported. “Mariah responded, ‘No, we will not,’ ” Walters said.
The ABC newswoman said Carey was especially concerned because the singer has her young twins with her. After Mariah’s appearance on The View, Nicki when on a Twitter rampage!

“I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet,” she went on. “Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.”
