Filming of the 12th series of American Idol was temporarily abandoned in Charlotte, North Carolina last night after a row broke out between rapper Nicki Minaj and fellow judge Mariah Carey.
The rapper appears to shout âIâm not fuckinâ putting up with her fuckinâ highness over thereâ?, to which Carey responded âWhy do I have a three year old sitting around me?â?.
The dispute had apparently followed an argument over the quality of one of the contestants hoping to emulate the success of last yearâs winner, Phillip Phillips. According to the gossip site TMZ, Minaj also allegedly said âIâm gonna knock you outâ? though this wasn’t recorded in the video.
This isn’t the first feud that rapper Minaj has been in though, having also been involved in a drawn out spat with Lâil Kim, and if she isn’t careful she wonât have any female mid-1990s urban pop music star friends left.
