Nicki Minaj Curses Out Mariah Carey on ‘American Idol’ Audition

During the American Idol auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, newly appointed judge Nicki Minaj got into a verbal dispute with fellow judge Mariah Carey. The scene of Minaj going berserk against the legendary pop diva was caught on camera, and from the fuzzy clip (with muddy audio recording), the YMCMB princess can be heard screaming out, “So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a fucking problem, handle it.” The enraged Queens rapper added, “I told them I’m not fucking putting up with her fucking highness over there. Figure it the fuck out. Figure it out.”

While celebrity gossip media outlet TMZ is claiming that Minaj later said, “I’m gonna knock you out,” to Mariah Carey, no audio or footage of the comment was captured for evidence.

As a result of the confrontation, the auditions were unfortunately cancelled for the day. Check out the video above. —Jaeki Cho (@JaekiCho)
