This week, we all watched the video of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey’s behind-the-scenes “cat fight” make its way around the web and the national television circuit, even warranting a small rant from Barbara Walters on The View in Carey’s defense.
Some have speculated the spat was staged to boost the show’s sagging ratings. Meanwhile others view the verbal brawl as genuine dislike between the two superstars. Despite the reason, it ended with Minaj accusing the show’s producers and Mariah of conspiring against her, and Minaj allegedly saying she was going to shoot Mariah.
Now an Idol insider is revealing Minaj may get the boot from the show. In an interview with People magazine, the source explained: “On the day of the fight, production staff were the only people in the room.” But now that the argument has taken on a life of its own, “they are talking about firing Nicki. That is still up for debate. They are worried about how she will act during the live shows.”
With the two divas butting heads before Idol hits the air, this can’t be a good sign. Kens and Barbs, it looks like your girl may be in danger of losing her seat at the judges table.
