Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey‘s reported feud is apparently true after all. Just weeks after dodging the rumor saying they didn’t get along on American Idol set, the two female judges got into a heated argument during the auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday, October 2.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Minaj was caught swearing at Carey. “I told them, I’m not f***in’ putting up with her f***in’ highness over there,” she said. Nicki reportedly also threatened Carey, “I’m gonna knock you out.”
It all went down while the two were sitting at the judge’s table … with Keith Urban sitting in between them and Randy Jackson sitting on the far end, next to Mariah. The whole thing exploded over a disagreement over a contestant’s performance.
A source told Mouthtoears.com: ‘Nicki Minaj walked off of set because Mariah Carey kept making jabs at her.
On the video you can’t understand what Mariah was saying, but I’m guessing butterflies were mentioned at least once. The producers ended the auditions for the day so the two judges could cool down.
Check out some of the transcript below.
Nicki: Get this s**t in self control. Get in control. Get in control.
Randy: Settle down, settle down
Nicki: Don’t lose your head. Don’t lose your head (inaudible). Don’t tell me I’m a gangster.
Nicki: (inaudible) every 5 minutes. So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a f**king problem, handle it.
Nicki: I told them I’m not f**kin’ putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out.
Nicki: I’m not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.
