Turns out the rumors of an "American Idol" feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey is real! A new video circulating the web shows the judges table heating up when an incident caught off-camera causes Minaj to go off on a cursing tirade.

Mariah Carey is well known to be a diva, so when Nicki Minaj was officially signed on to be a co-judge for season 12 of “American Idol” many speculated that drama would ensue. Despite Carey denying rumors of a feud between the two, a new video from “Idol” auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday show otherwise. 

Obtained by TMZ, the incriminating footage of the “American Idol” judges table show a very riled up Minaj letting Carey have a piece of her mind.

“Get this s**t in self control. Get in control. Get in control,” Minaj could be heard yelling as she throws her hands up in the air. 

While co-judge Keith Urban (who was sitting in between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj) throws his hands up in the air as if surrendering, original judge Randy Jackson tried to get the talented ladies to compose themselves by telling them to “settle down.”

The singers did not settle down though. While Minaj continued to yell about being patronized and “if  you’ve got a f**king problem, handle it,” Carey can barely be heard responding. Although mostly inaudible, Carey in the middle of Minaj’s rant cried out, “Ohhh, why, why, why?”

Minaj went on to heatedly say, “I told them I’m not f**kin’ putting up with her f**king highness over there, and “I’m not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.” The fight did not end with the video. Although the camera cut out, it didn’t appear that the two would be settling their argument anytime soon.

While the video is definitely an amusing one (thank you Keith Urban) sources revealed to TMZ that before the video started, Nicki Minaj actually threatened to get physical with Mariah Carey. According to the source Minaj threatened to “knock out” her co-judge.

The whole debacle is a far from the feud denials that Carey talked to MTV about in mid-September. On a set visit on Sept. 17, Carey and Minaj were “all smiles” in front of the MTV News crew. 

“How are we gonna feud in two days?” Carey laughed about the Minaj rumors. “A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that].”

According to TMZ, the Charlotte auditions were ended early on Tuesday so that the judges could cool down, but sources reveal that producers are worried about future blow outs between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
