On top of cursing Mariah Carey off during a heated exchange on the American Idol set this week, did Nicki Minaj also threaten to murder the pop star?
Yes, according to Barbara Walters. Wait... what?!?
On The View today, the co-host read from notes she took during a conversation with Carey in which the artist alleges "Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, 'If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch.'"
Mariah also told Walters she has hired extra security to protect her from Minaj.
In response, Minaj - who believes this feud was set up by American Idol producers - has called out Carey on Twitter:
"I don't call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.
"I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we've had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn."
Considering the hype this feud has received, with almost everyone on the show commenting on it and the original video surfacing in the first place, we must ask: Are you buying it?
Or could this be a PR stunt for a show in need of a rating boost?
Do you think Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey rivlary is real?
