A new video has emerged showing an enraged Nicki Minaj threatening producers against fellow judge Mariah Carey. The video was captured during auditions held in Charlotte, North Carolina this past Tuesday. According to sources Nicki and Mariah disagreed over a contestant’s performance and the former lost her cool with a shaken Keith Urban caught in the middle.
“I’m gonna knock you out!” said the “Super Bass” rapper directly to her co-judge. She then turned her attention to producers and her threats alluded to trouble in the past.
Reportedly American Idol producers canceled the remaining auditions with hopes the judges would cool and are concerned one or both of the ladies may walk out. Not likely.
The video wouldn’t be as surprising if both entertainers didn’t go to lengths to deny any behind-the-scenes beef.
When asked last month about the tension the “Dreamlover” singer revealed, “How are we gonna feud in two days. A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that].”
Nicki added at the time, Either way, Nicki was seen chuckling along with Mariah as she continued, “It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter.”
Looks like one month was plenty of time.
