Mariah Carey Tells Barbara Walters That Nicki Minaj Threatened To Shoot Her

Earlier this week, a video was released that showed Nicki Minaj yelling at and cussing out Mariah Carey while sitting at the judges table during American Idol auditions. Seriously, it looked intense and my only hope is that we get to see a bit of what happened when the season actually airs.

This morning, Barbara Walters decided to call her “good friend” Mariah Carey to get the scoop on what happened. Carey informed Walters that what people saw in the video wasn’t even the worst of it. What had her worried was that as Minaj walked off, she said that if she had a gun she would shoot Carey. Yikes. Although Carey isn’t “afraid” of Minaj, she does feel that she is unpredictable and has thus hired extra security to protect her.

Walters shared this news on The View this morning. Nicki Minaj has since responded to these allegations and the fact that Carey spoke with Walters with some harsh tweets. Check out the clip from The View as well as Minaj’s tweets below.

Minaj Responds To Allegations Via Twitter

  • I think Minaj’s spelling should be considered a public offence.

    Agree with Tyson. Going on Nicki’s poor spelling alone, I can see why Mariah felt the need to hire extra security.

  • Nick

    maybe it’s just a stunt for Nicki’s upcoming reality show that has been rumoured to just have started shooting

  • striped

    great publicity

  • Oliver

    It’s sad when people like Minaj become famous and instantly lose reality. Who does she think she is to insult a superstar like Mariah Carey? It would take her decades to achieve what Carey has achieved and she should A) show some respect and B) not act like a ghetto bitch.

    Nicki is complete rubbish, completely overrated and talentless, she needs to be disposed ASAP

  • wizzymcg

    i guess mimi calling nicki a bitch several times has nothing to do with this? please, they’re both divas who know how to get attention.

    It’s just shows that the old adage is true, you can take the girl out of the street but you can’t take the street out of the girl. Nicki is just showing her street here, and it comes off as just that. No education, no class, no sophistication. She’s a joke when compared to real divas, Mariah, Aretha, Billie, Etta, Ella, and many other incredibly talented songstresses’… Nicki couldn’t hold a candle to any of them when it comes to the talent, not to make the mention of the sophistication and class they all had. I don’t know if I wouldn’t have some divas in me if I had that amount of talent and money, but it’s clear who doesn’t here! She’s a clown and she dresses like it, looks like it, do one commercial for a soft drink and suddenly she thinks she’s a Beyonce?? The producers either need to tell her to get off the stage before they carry her off. Contract or not, that’s not acceptable in any situation.
