Persistent rumors that all is not well between the two new female judges on Fox’s American Idol set appeared to move into the confirmed category on Tuesday when gossip website TMZ posted a video of Nicki Minaj blowing up at Mariah Carey during auditions in Charlotte, NC. In the video, Minaj shouts, “I told them I’m not f***in’ putting up with her f***in’ highness over there.” She then addresses Carey directly, “I’m not gonna sit here every f***ing minute to have you come down and harass me every minute every day.” (The audio is difficult to decipher. The TMZ rendition of it is used here.) Reporting on the apparent fracas, USA Today commented, “The leaked video has many questioning if it’s all a set-up by producers to get viewers to tune in when the show returns in January. After all, who took the footage?”
