So far, FOX has tried to quash the rumors that new “American Idol” judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey haven’t been getting along backstage. But it’ll be hard to spin any other way now that TMZ has video of Minaj cursing out Carey.
In the video, which you can watch below, Minaj is screaming at Carey, saying, “I told them, I’m not f—in’ putting up with her f—in’ highness over there.”
A source tells the site MouthtoEars that Minaj actually walked off set because Carey kept “making jabs at her.” After Minaj’s manager convinced her to come back, Carey called her a bitch Minaj blew up, causing producers to shut down filming for the night.
Wonder how the show is going to try to play off this incident?
Carey tweeted “whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy,” seemingly in response to the story, but Minaj hasn’t spoken out about it yet. FOX hasn’t commented yet either.
