HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that the feud between Nicki and Mariah is actually Nicki’s fault! The insider warns that if Nicki Minaj doesn’t get her act together, she could be fired!

The heated fight between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the set of American Idol auditions on Oct. 2, in which both divas cursed each other out and stopped production, actually left the show’s producers on Mariah’s side.

“If you want to know who is a major diva it is Nicki Minaj,” a source close to American Idol told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.  “She is a major handful and a complete pain.”

And it turns out, people on the show are on Team Mariah!

“Everyone is a fan of Mariah and completely on her side, and if Nicki Minaj continues to make things be such an issue, they would be happy for her to be fired.”

All of the rumors of drama and feuding came to a head on Oct. 2 during the explosive fight. In the video footage obtained by TMZ, Nicki is heard shouting,“I told them, I’m not f***ing putting up with her f***ing highness over there.”

TMZ also reports that, according to sources, Nicki later threatened to “knock out” Mariah, though that was not caught on film.

The insider claims their clash in personalities is to blame. “It’s based solely on the fact they both have amazingly huge egos, but Nicki Minaj takes the cake of having a major attitude problem,” the source said.

American Idol Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe spoke to HollwoodLife.com exclusively about the on set drama.

“The fact is, there will be such a very good American Idol that there will be differences of opinions,” he said. “And that is part of it.”

I hate nicki! She is so fake. Everything about her is fake.. How is it possible that she thinks she knows better than Mariah in music?! She really need to go for counseling because her attitude was unethical.. Especially in a work environment.. Team Mariah all the way:) her 16yr old biggest fan!!!!!!! Kelly

The only voice I could hear during the “diva bashing” was the loud mouth of Nikki Minaj.. She’s a really horrible example to young girls and young women everywhere. Mariah kept her mouth shut for the most part – as I wasn’t really able to hear her gangsta voice, like Nikki’s.. To Nigel and Ryan: Somebody make a huge mistake with the hiring of Nicki. She needs to be fired right away for threatening Mariah with violence and death threats!!

Why in the world would you bring someone who was an EMBARRASEMENT to the show while performing on it (Nicki) who couldn’t control her boobs on a family show, and have her as a judge now?? There are a hundred other singers that would have been a better choice. Many people I’ve talked to will not be watching anymore if they keep Nicki around. So dissapointing.

Wow- American Idol hiring a person who had no singing talent at all plus she had a crazy psycho temper. Way to make the viewers go bye bye this upcoming season! No one wants to see that crap!

Nicki is clearly the one with the attitude problem here, shes the oud one cursing and making threats and mariah is the calm one. Im a nicki fan but f*** that shes too dramatic.

Understand that there are always two sides to the story, I’m a fan of both but I feel Mariah should be the only one on the show due to the fact that shes older and been in this enterntainment longer, I think Nicki should be on as a guest but not on the main show.. I know they have to compete with X-Factor and The Voice etc. so both ladies could be wrong

Im pretty sure that its not just nicki minaj fault because it takes 2 to have an argument, everyone know that mariah carey is a diva and everyone know that if you put 2 divas together it creates a huge problem. poor nicki is playong right into her hand. when people make comments you just need to learn to let it go because people are who they are for a reason so if you want that money you gotta put up with it. just think about how many judges on this these singing shows dont like each other

Nicki just lost a fan. So ghetto, trashy, and all around disrespectful. It’s moments like these where we see the true colors.

what do you mean true colors. If Mariah is saying something bad to her or about her, how is Nicki in the wrong for sticking up for herself. Just because she stood up for herself doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with her. Who cares if you’re not her fan anymore, she doesn’t need you. And if you decide not to be her fan anymore because of this, you weren’t a true fan anyway.

You’re right in the sense that she won’t care if she loses a fan, to think that a celebrity of her caliber would is outrageous. However, I can’t imagine Mariah saying something so terrible for a lady to react that way. To think that you could sit there and watch the full clip, listen to what she’s saying and how she’s saying it, DURING AN AUDITION TAPING never the less, really makes me question your judgement. There’s just no excuse for an international pop star to be acting this way, especially when being taped. She is somebody who is a role model to many, and this footage leaking will not help her image or sales.

Who is Nicki Minaj, very poor choice on American Idol’s part. There are other people watch and interested in the show besides little tiny boppers…..

Well they were losing viewers and they brang Nicki Minaj. I bet their viewers count is going to sky-rocket because of her. And if you don’t know her, you must be pretty ancient or you have been under a rock very far away from civilization. Get with the times.

It is “brought” not “brang”, Daya. Learn some grammar, please. Also, it would be best not to know Nikki Minaj anyway. Seriously, she has no talent at all. However, it does take two to start an arguement so I do not think it was very fair that the producers took Mariah’s side even though she has been famous longer.
