Well, what do you know, looks like the rumors about Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj not getting along might be true after all. Apparently Nicki had a few choice words for Mariah during the American Idol auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday.
The whole debacle started over a contestants performance which apparently saw Nicki swearing at Mariah Carey and threatening, "I'm gonna knock you out" but Mariah shot back with insults of her own.
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 Nicki later threatened to "knock out" Mariah ... but she said it before the video starts.
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.
If you listen closely as you play the video you'll hear the following:
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.
Mariah Oh why, WHYYYY .do I have a three year old sitting around me?
Nicki I'm not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.
Mariah I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.
Whoa! Talk about a blow out! Apparently the producers had to stop the auditions for the day so the 2 judges could calm down.
