Mariah Carey Confirms That Nicki Minaj Threatened To Kill Her

Last night, Barbara Walters sat down with Mariah Carey and interviewed her. At one point the conversation turned to American Idol, and Mariah Carey confirmed what she had said previously. Namely, that Nicki Minaj threatened to kill Mariah and that Mariah took it so seriously that she upped her security and was fearful for her children's lives. She also said Nicki should keep the show classy.

It's Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. all over again.

Why did she threaten Mariah? What was the threat? Need more details pls.

auntliddy said...

Idiot. And why does minjai have my little pony hair? I dont get her at all.

Mimi loves her dramz! My gf just came back from coffee the other day with a guy who grew up in Brooklyn with niki minaj.. I know this will come as a huge surprise to everyone .. But the booty is fake. Along with the persona.

I used to play the hell out of "Butterfly" back in the day but other than that I'm not the biggest fan of her music.. However she can bring the diva. I can respect that.

Nicki could keep it classy only by leaving the show and/or the planet. She thinks she's Lil Kim meets Lady Gaga. She wishes it was like Biggie/Tupac.

Alicia said...

She referring to Mimi not Minaj!! More coffee please!

If that is true, Nicki should have been fired on the spot. You don't just sprew death threats and go back to work like nothing ever happened. Death threats are getting so out of hand these days.

Good for her. Nicki is scary. With the wild wigs, make up outfits, threatening, swearing, weird behavior, rumored drug issues, unsavory " thug" characters that she spends time with. Plus Mimi has been so pampered for so long, ( read mega wealthy) and with their fertility issues I'd imagine she'd be a little paranoid and overprotective of her little ones. Nicki shouldn't have popped off.

That's the problem with these judges. They can't help but make the show about themselves and the contestants can't find any room to shine and have their personalities come through. You shouldn't have to compete with the Judge for the spotlight. I have to say that is one thing Paula, Simon and Randy did best they let the talent lead the show. Paula was loopy but it didn't get in the way of a Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. If they were on the show today Nicki & Mariah would do everything she could to undermine them as performers.

Fake booty as in implants (ow!) or padding?

Vicki Cupper said...

Figgy, where do you think she stores her wigs?

Tuxedo Cat said...

I think Nicki knew exactly what she was doing and that getting the public's attention is everything with a reality show.

I don't think Mariah was in on it. When you have children, it can never be taken as a joke. Nicki appears to hate Mariah and I think Mariah did the right thing in taking it seriously, just in case Nicki has some crazy fans.

Renoblondee said...

I don't blame Mariah at all.

MadLyb said...

I'm over both of these ninnies. My eyes are hurting from rolling so much today.

plrtz glrb said...

So, is it no longer illegal to threaten to kill somebody?

Vicki Cupper said...

Only if you're a civilian.

figgy said...

@Vicki, LOL! Good point, very efficient.

greenmountaingal said...

Minaj is a pig. Why is she even famous? Lil Kim and Foxy Brown could've rapped circles around her back in the day.

I'm sure Mariah is an intolerable Diva and extremely high maintenance, difficult to work with and just plain old annoying...but to threaten someone's life...that's just plain old classless and low life of Nicki Minaj. Fame and money can't buy class. Nicki should have been fired on the spot. If I went around threatening co-workers, I'd be fired on the spot and forced to see a psychiatrist.

Good ole Hollywood. Rewarding bad behavior again.

DBZee said...

I'm confused by that last line. Nicki should keep the show classy - as in Mariah is assuming she will, or Nicki SHOULD keep the show classy, as in saying she should back of the death threats?

Sherry said...

I see someone falling very hard when the fame train pulls from the station and she isn't on it anymore. All she'll have is a fat butt and some broke ass hay-uh.

Maja With a J said...

I really hope that when people talk about me, they describe me as "festive". "That Maja, she is so festive!".

Sarah said...

Mariah is hilarious. There is no way she was truly frightened by Nicki's Rainbow Bright ass, but Mimi knows drama and knows how to win girl fights.

ms snarky said...

@Sarah
word. I saw the Babs interview, and I don't believe for a second that Mariah was scared. I do believe she is enjoying making talentless Nicki look like an idiot.

Alicia said...

@figgy - implants *shudder*

nudibelle said...

not buying it for one second. bitch knows what shes doing security? Shes loving making that girl look crazy. Old diva showing nikki how you really run this business..in the media

Barton Fink said...

I love Mariah in all dimensions of her being. Nicki, I kinda like a little, sometimes. If I had to choose ....

nessa said...

i love mimi, with all her programming flaws xD

nessa said...

@figgy i'd guess padding, she took them out briefly when the show started

Henriette said...

Mariah Carey is about the only one I would like to see judge. She actually has talent. Brit Brit is fun, but I wouldn't let her judge my goldfish.

I don't think AI is about the contestants anymore. Since they hired JBlow and Steven Tyler, it has become about the judges. Don't expect to see another Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. All the other idols have pretty much disappeared or gone into theatre.

I also find the timing of all this coincides with Tommy Mortola's autobiography coming out next week. It's about the same time as Mariah's debut on AI. He knows the real scoop on Mariah and her escort days.

Lola said...

I love Mimi...she married Nick Cannon after all.

I absolutely loathe Nicki Minaj.

Supermom said...

Uh oh Nicki is going to have to cut a bitch now!

That being said I love Mimi despise Nicki..careful Mimi!!

City Councilman Doug said...

You guys remember the blind about the diva wannabe who said something like "Mary J. BYE...there's a new diva in town." It was revealed to be Minaj. Mariah might be a diva, but she has earned that right and is so effin good at it. I absolutely cannot stand Minaj, and don't stand for any trash talkin about Mary J.
