Things are getting heated between new American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.

In footage provided by TMZ, the "Starships" rapper is seen swearing loudly at Carey behind the judge's table during a Charlotte, N.C. audition, while fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson look on.

Minaj appears to be alarmingly angry with Carey, screaming, "I told them, I'm not f***in' putting up with her f***in' highness over there."

TMZ also reported that sources say Minaj later threatened to “knock out” the singer.

What did the two come to blows about?

Apparently, their fight began over a contestant’s performance, which the two disagreed upon. A production insider said auditions came to a halt after the argument so that the two judges could calm down, according to MouthtoEars.com.

Just last month, Carey and Minaj both attempted to squash rumors that there was bad blood between the two of them.

Carey had told MTV, “How are we gonna feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that].”

Meanwhile, Minaj had informed the Associated Press that the pair were getting along just fine.

What do you think of Minaj’s outburst? Sound off in the comments below.

    My opinion of Nicki is she is rude, tacky, and should be dismissed as a judge. She is a reason to stop watching the show. Further if she truly threatened Mariah, some consideration should be given as to whether or not to arrest her. I personally don't see what anyone sees in her, she appears to be fake from the floor up and if anyone's behavior warrants a good cussing out it appears that Nicki is deserving of such.

    Why are you assuming it was Nicki's fault?

  • oOoCarnieGirloOo

    Nicki - needs to go back to the ghetto and hang out at the corner store - talkin all that smack , like she IS somebody! PSSHH whatevs

  • Yaya

    Yeah agreed with that, BUT they are better ways to stand up for yourself, showing that you are educated and have some class and you are a lady first. You do not cuss out a person, you make them see they are wrong. Maryah is a Diva, and sometimes she can be horrible, but in this case she shows how a LADY behave.

    mariah should quit sharting shit, she called nicki out and thats why nicki went off

  • kat5303

    Nicki should be ashamed of herself. I hope Sophia-Grace and Rosie were not watching. Great example you re being to those little girls!!!!!! GROWUP

    Nicky Minaj looks and sounds like a freakish "minnie/mickey mouse". She has NO class and cannot even be considered a REAL singer. Unlike the immensely talented Mariah Carey who is so far above Nicky Minaj it's ridiculous. And Mariah has class which she demonstrated on the show during punk mouth Nicky's tirade. Nicky Minaj is a joke and needs to be kicked off the show. She is not qualified to be a judge nor a singer.

  • Jennifer

    I completely agree! There isn't even a comparison between the two.

  • Jennifer

    And this is exactly why Nicki should not be a judge. First off. Mariah has been singing long before Nicki even hit puberty. She has class, and tolerance that she even shows in this video. To go off like that in front of people goes to show that Nicki's maturity is that of a 10 year old girl. Nicki should be taken off ASAP.

  • amanda

    COME ON PEOPLE !!!!! I love Mariah but shes a diva, and Nicki is not gonna put up with up. Dont be mad cus she stands up to her!!!

  • Sherri

    I think that Nicki's outburst cleary shows she lacks class and just common sense. She obviously was a bad pick to be a judge on this show or any other, for that matter.

    Mariah IS a legend, and she definitely has amazing talent. But I wouldn't be surprised at all if she acts like a diva. There's no reason to act like one even if you are amazingly skilled.

  • Americans#dumb

    You guys obviously don't get it. Americans LOVE drama, a fact proven by chart topping shows like jersey shore, the housewives series , the list goes on and on. As long as brainless idiots watch these shows things like this outburst from nicki is gonna grab headlines and make people watch, this will only bring up ratings.

  • Dianne

  • Tara
