Singer Nicki Minaj allegedly threatened fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey during the audition of the show in Charlotte, North Carolina today.
“I’m gonna knock you out,” said Minaj in a report by TMZ. But that part wasn’t caught on tape.
The producers of Idol ended auditions for the day so the two judges could cool down.
According to the report, “Nicki Minaj derailed the “American Idol” auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina today, 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.
Big wigs on the show seem uncharacteristically upset by the blow up — it appears this was no joke and it seems producers are worried about Mariah and Nicki co-existing for the long haul.”

Here is the transcript:
Nicki: “And if you’ve got a ****ing problem, handle it. I told them I’m not ****ing putting up with your ****ing highness over there.”
Mariah “Oh Why, why, why do I have a three year old sitting around me?”
Nicki: “I’m not sitting here for 20 million having her look down here repremanded everyday. No.”
Mariah: “I can’t see my kids because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”
Nicki: “Go see them now, go. You’re boring as ****.”
