This is why two divas of colossal personalities just need their own space!
According to a report by TMZ, things got pretty heated during the filming of American Idol auditions today in Charlotte, North Carolina with a verbal altercation between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey that led to filming being cancelled for the day.
Nicki Minaj derailed the “American Idol” auditions after swearing at her and threatening, “I’m gonna knock you out” … sources tell TMZ.
Multiple sources are telling us there was a blow up between the two … Nicki left, then came back and the fireworks continued, culminating with the threat. We’re told producers ended the auditions for the day so the two judges could cool down.
TMZ isn’t the only site reporting on the drama between the divas. According to an exclusive report by Mouth to Ears, Nicki was being provoked by Mariah prior to the threat that ended filming for the day.
Mouth to Ears reports:
Nicki Minaj walked off of set because Mariah Carey kept making jabs at her. Nicki’s manager and team convinced her to come back to the show. Mariah kept at it and called Nicki a bitch and then proceeded to cuss her out. Producers had to stop filming and call it a night.
Seems like things got pretty heated on set and it is said to have producers in frenzy. And we all thought Simon was the diva!
And, as the video surfaces, Mariah Carey has taken to twitter to let us know how she’s feeling:
Ouch. Check out the video of the altercation above!
