Nicki Minaj Threatens To Knock Out Mariah Carey During "American Idol" Audition Caught On Tape

Nicki Minaj has fighting words for fellow "American Idol" judge Mariah Carey.

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey both have reputations for having larger than life personalities - so perhaps it's no surprise that the two would clash as judges on "American Idol."

TMZ reports that during "Idol" auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, Minaj threatened Mariah, saying, "I'm gonna knock you out" to the singer.

Nicki reportedly added, "I told them, I'm not fuckin' putting up with her fuckin' highness over there."

Producers reportedly ended the auditions for the day so that cooler heads could prevail.

A video of the blow-up was caught on camera:

    Told yall Nikki = Lil Mama. Sure she will get her cash for A.I but in the end that's a severance pay off because she just committed career suicide. You don't throw fits on the air. Unless your name is Charlie Sheen,And he got more money then Nikki will ever see through movies & tv he can do that in get away with it. Mean while she might get Black Balled for being a dumb. Shm

    "You mean a lot of kid viewers" Notice I didn't say kids. Learn how to read dipshit. I said "female viewers". Likely in their teens, maybe early 20's.

    "Nikki in the other hand is not as established as she thinks (nor stable)" Dumb fuck, she's worth $20 million. Has had only 2 albums, 1 of which was platinum, and another gold. She probably tours nonstop, and is already branching off into other things. Mariah Scarey made her money already. She's just existing in the industry right now.

    Ratchet hoes do ratchet things. What's Nikki doing on AI if she can't sing? Hell she can't rap either, she's a good performer that means smoke and mirrors are in effect. At least Mariah can sing and has plenty of grammys and plaques so she can act however she wants. Nikki in the other hand is not as established as she thinks (nor stable).

    • Big Dan

      Not only that, why is this bitch trying to mess up that kind of money? Is her ego that big? Jeez! Screaming you're not going to put up with her highness tells me you think you're on a high horse yourself. Stay low, stay humble, try to get at least three seasons in and your great grand kids don't have to work for a living. Matter of fact, their great grand kids won't have to either. That hip hop crap does not work everywhere woman. Plus I'm sure MCs body guards could rough yours up any day. As a matter of fact that's where you're failing. Yeah I'm sure you could take down MC if you got the chance, but that's if you got the chance. MC doesn't raise her hands these days, she's got people to do that for her and you'd be hard pressed to get that close to her. So unless you want to sneak up on her and end up in jail, chill bitch. You went Hollywood on us and now you making big money you wanna go hood rat again? You slipping. They don't watch idol in the hood, so you won't impress anybody with the tough talk.

    who the hell Nicki think she is? why dont you just shut the f$%k up and fuck that Ugly Lil Wayne...nigga still call himself lil wayne and he fucken 30s yrs..

    the hood rat nicki need to sell some records before she can even make eye contact with mariah...

    "Mariah is not just a great singer she's considered one of the greatet of all time" So was Whitney and look what happened to her. Point being the producers clearly think NM belongs there. She'll bring in alot of female viewers which equals ratings.

  • uhuh

    this was about as nigga of a moment as it gets, nicki minaj should be ashamed

      so when black people act ignorant they are niggas? is ignorance some curse exclusive to black people or some shit? what kind of white supremacist bullshit is that? What about when white people act ignorant? Reminds me of Hurricane Katrina when a black person was stealing food from stores they were looting but when a white people were doing the exact same thing they were "looking for food". This is why i stopped using the n-word altogether.

  • RC

    There's low class then there's no class. You can take the rat out the Hood but can't take the Hood out the rat.

  • Kris

    This is why they should have hired Toni Braxton instead of this fad they call Nicki Minaj! You cant have a classy woman and a hoodrat woman on the same program and not expect to have the hoodrat show their ratchness! Toni and Mariah are both class acts and even if they didnt get along, they wouldnt be blowing up in such an embarrassing manner!

  • Anonymous

    Best way to settle this; both Mariah and Nicki in a mud fight with nothing on but bikinis. Tell me you wouldn't watch that.

  • da1

    Unlike Nicki, Mariah actually belongs there. Mariah is not just a great singer she's considered one of the greatet of all time. She's also been in the business for over 20 years. Minaj uses autotune like crazy and just came out with an album two years ago. That bitch fell off already an is already doing reality TV. She's on the wrong show. She needs to be on one of those VH1 reality shows with MC Search or some shit. haha

    Too bad Mariah didn't get up and stab Nicki in the throat. That would have topped my day off on a high note, listening to the new Smoke DZA and watching Nicki Minaj get dropped. God that would have been better than Bieber puking on stage!

    Nicki being a typical loud mouth bitch runnin her mouth and NOT looking at Mariah. Nicki ain't about that life. She will be fired from idol, besides idol is about singing, Mariah fits better on the show than Nicki
