Everyone knew this one was coming. Ever since it was confirmed that Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey were going to be on the judges’ panel for American Idol, it was just a matter of time before weaves started flying. Two divas do not a simpatico situation make. There were beef rumors between the two right from the beginning, so we’ll say this bust-up between them has arrived right on schedule. Only, we’ve got drama that is beyond! Yesterday, auditions were being taped in North Carolina and what started off as a difference of opinion over a contestant between Minaj and Carey quickly blew up, and TMZ got the video of the major fight that ensued, which you can see above. Nicki basically lost it and not only told the producers, “I told them, I’m not f—ing putting up with Her F—ing Highness over there” but then proceeded very ominously to threaten to “knock” Miss Mariah out, as sources report. Poor Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, who tried to chime in with “settle down, settle down” look like they went to get the hell out. We wish we could hear what Mariah’s saying in the video, but she isn’t screaming and cussing like Nicki is. She looks quite, erm, exasperated. That’s the polite term, right? Nicki even says, “I’m not gonna sit here every f—ing minute to have you come down and harass me every minute every day.” Geez. Auditions were shut down for the day so the two could get some space. But what’s going to happen when they have to get back in their chairs? It’s not going to pretty this season, at all. And you thought Paula and Simon were bad!
