Nicki Minaj Unloads On Mariah Carey During ‘American Idol’ Auditions


CHARLOTTE, North Caroline (TRP) – Season 12 of “American Idol” hasn’t even hit the air yet, but that isn’t stopping the drama, the F-bombs and the classic “I’m gonna knock you out” exchanges from being unleashed… and we’re just talking about the judges’ table.

During auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina Tuesday, a cat fight of epic proportions erupted between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.

Minaj allegedly grew annoyed by apparent insults spewed by Carey, calling her a “gangster.”

The Queens rapper erupts and lashes out at the songstress, allegedly threatening to “knock her out.”




Footage of the diva throw down surfaced on TMZ late Tuesday. Re-airing the footage comes with a bit of hefty price tag, so we will be doing the next best thing: a reenactment.

With a transcript handy, watch the video above to see how the PIX11 Reenactors play out the dramatic scene the unraveled between the divas during ‘Idol’ auditions.

Meanwhile, camps for Mariah and Nicki have yet to release a statement on the drama. TMZ is reporting that producers are now “worried” about the two judges “co-existing for the long haul.”

Time will only tell, and ratings will probably tell another story.
