The conflict between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj seems to be growing intense with every day that passes by. Not too many people thought that the conflict would last this long. I never would have believed that the Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj conflict would degenerate to the level that it has reached. In a recent interview with veteran journalist Barbara Walters, Diva Mariah Carey talked about the infamous “American Idol” confrontation that she had with Nicki Minaj.
According to Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj took things way too far when she threatened to shoot her on the set of ‘American Idol’. Mariah Carey said that she never expected that from Nicki Minaj and hence was overtaken by pure fright that she had to hire extra security in order to feel safe. Barbara Walters revealed the full details of the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey American Idol feud on “The View”. She said that during the interview she had with Mariah Carey, she noticed the singer and mother of two was very concerned about the threat from Nicki Minaj because the latter is extremely unpredictable. She is therefore not taking a chance and “has hired extra security”, Barbara Walters said.
The Mariah Carey Nicki Minaj conflict degenerated when the two musicians who are both judges on the American Idol show would not agree with each other on a contestant’s talent. It is believed that it was after this particular show that Nicki Minaj confronted Mariah Carey with the death threat which according to Mariah Carey, several American Idol staffers and even producers heard and can bare her witness.
Nicki Minaj responded to Mariah Carey’s version of the feud by saying that Barbara Walters was extremely partial and laughed of Mariah Carey’s accusation. According to the New York Daily News, the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey blowout was captured on camera.
The feud happened during the American Idol auditions held in Charlotte, N.C.
