According to TMZ on Wednesday, the Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey feud occurred while the four American Idol judges are conducting an audition for the reality-singing competition in Charlotte, North Carolina. Keith Urban can be seen sitting between the Nicki and Mariah when the incident happened.
As noted in the report, a source told them that Nicki Minaj threatened Mariah Carey, saying, “I’m gonna knock you out…” But it was said to have happened before the video was taken. It was not clear as who took the video and there is no yet official statement from parties involved as to how the feud started.
Meanwhile, pioneer judge Randy Jackson can be seen sitting next to Mariah, on the far end of the judges’ seat. It was clear on the video that he and Keith Urban were surprised with the series of events, and both of them along with other people present are trying to calm the situation.
“I’m not going to take it back, and if you’ve got a f—ing problem, handle it. I told them, I’m not f—ing putting up with her f—ing highness over there,” Nicki Minaj can be heard saying in the video.
“Ohhhhh, why, why, why?” Carey responds, and MTV.com reported that she could have been saying that she wanted to spend time with her children instead of arguing with Nicki Minaj, who said, “Good, well then go see them now. Go see them now!”
