Mariah Carey Felt Unsafe During Nicki Minaj Feud

Mariah Carey Felt Unsafe During Nicki Minaj Feud
Posted January 9th, 2013 @ 9:43am

When Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj fiercly argued during an American Idol audition in North Carolina, Mariah felt extremely uncomfortable.  In an interview with Barbara Walters, Mariah recalls the event:

"It felt like an unsafe work environment.  Anytime anybody's reeling threats at somebody, you know, it's not appropriate. I'm a professional. I'm not used to that type of environment."

Carey claims that the war of words was worse once the cameras were turned off.  Mariah remembers Minaj saying, "If I had a gun, I would shoot that b!tch."  Because of the blow-up, Carey hired more security.

Minaj denies mentioning anything about a gun.
