American Idol bust up turned violent

2012-10-04 09:41
Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj allegedly threatened Mariah Carey by shouting: "Off with your head!"

The American Idol judges' explosive argument was caught on camera on Tuesday and shows Nicki screaming violent insults at Mariah because she made her feel "inadequate" during the auditions round of the competition.

The video, obtained by TMZ, shows Nicki firing an X-rated string of accusations at Mariah, despite fellow judges Randy Jackson and Keith Urban trying to diffuse the heated fight.

TMZ also claimed a show insider overheard Nicki taking her threats to the next level by ranting: "If I had a gun, I would shoot her."

In the video Nicki shouts: "Think I'm playin? Think this shit is a fucking joke? Think it's a joke?... If you say one more disrespectful thing to me - off with your head!"

Mariah replies: "I am not being disrespectful", to which Nicki retorts: "Off with your head, off with your head.

"Don't tell me I'm insecure, don't tell me I'm inadequate ... You're the insecure one sitting up there running down her resume every five minutes.

"I told them, I'm not fucking putting up with your fucking highness over there ... Figure it out."

Filming halted

Show bosses called off filming in Charlotte, North Carolina so the stars could cool off, but there are fears the newly-appointed judges will be unable to work together in future after Mariah branded Nicki immature and the feisty rapper slammed the diva for being "boring as fuck".

The video ends with Mariah whining: "Why do I have a three-year-old sitting around me?... I can't see my kids because you decided to have a little baby fit and going all around the stage."

Nicki retorts: "Good, well then go see them now, go see them now ... you're boring as fuck."

    HAHAHAHAHA WOW who could expect less from Nicki Minaj. She is still a child... Leave children to be children. But idols should really consider hiring some adults in the future.

    Why do they give those plastic idiots a job like that? They don't deserve to clean the toilets having a mouth like that. Such horrible language for the kids to imitate. You can puke now.

    Is this what you would call a hoe-down?

  • lesedi.amore - 2012-10-04 12:17

    er....has it not occurred to the show producers that this relationship ain't gon work? Besides we all know Nicki Minaj should only be used for 'American Idol Ghetto Girl Rap Stars' auditions or something similar. Reality TV is asking too much of her here - girlfriend is straight outta the hood.

    Nicki Minaj is an ugly person.. both on the outside and on the inside.
