Nicki Minaj cusses out, threatens Mariah Carey on ‘American Idol’

Nicki Minaj wasted no time to create a distraction for “American Idol” after a profanity filled attack on Tuesday as the rapper went after singer/judge Mariah Carey.

Sources tell TMZ, Nicki’s rant on the “American Idol” set went beyond mere name-calling Tuesday … the rapper also threatened Mariah’s life, saying, “If I had a gun, I would shoot her.”

The auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina were derailed at the rapper began swearing at Carey and threatening, “I’m gonna knock you out” and she began firing back insults as well.

In the footage, obtained by TMZ, Nicki is clearly furious … shouting, “I told them I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f**kin’ highness over there.”

Mariah can be heard saying, ““Oh why, WHYYYY??? Do I have a three year old sitting around me?”

Carey continues, “I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”

Sources say that before the video starts, Nicki threatened to “knock out” Mariah

The incident is rumored to be an explosion over a disagreement over a contestant’s performance.

Barbara Walters recounted speaking to Carey about the incident on The View Thursday. “[Mariah] said that what you heard was troublesome, but that’s not what worries her,” Walters told the audience. “When Nicki walked off the set, people heard her say if she had a gun she would ‘shoot that b––h.’ ”

“Mariah has hired extra security,” Walters continued.

While Minaj is yet to apologize for the incident, she did tell Carey, “I love you, but we might fight again,” according to Walters, who added, “Mariah doesn’t feel comfortable emotionally.”

Minaj took to Twitter Thursday to refute Walters’s and Carey’s claims of any threats of gun violence. “Hey yAll. Lets just say Nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it,” she Tweeted.

“Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz,” Minaj continued. (Minaj refers to her fans as Barbz.)
