Nicki Minaj threatened Mariah Carey : “If I had a gun, I would shoot the b**ch,” according to Mariah in an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters, revealed on ‘The View’ this morning, Oct. 4.

The explosive American Idol fight between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, revealed on video, just took a far darker turn.

Barbara spoke directly to Mariah on Oct. 4 and the longtime journalist shared Mariah’s feelings on today’s episode of The View, telling viewers that Mariah said, “What you heard was troublesome. What the real problem is is that when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say ‘If I had a gun, I would shoot the b**ch.’ She was overheard by several producers and hairdressers. Nicki has not apologized. There was a meeting yesterday morning [Oct. 3] and after, Nicki said ‘I love you, but we may fight again,’ and I said ‘no, we won’t.'”

Mariah is now at home with her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, she has hired extra security, and she’s focusing on the show at this time.

Mariah told Barbara, “I don’t feel comfortable emotionally, but I love the show and mentoring contestants.”

Mariah also told Barbara that there is a photo shoot today, Oct. 4, and the both of them are scheduled to appear.

Barbara told the audience that Keith Urban shared that he “just wants things to be normal.” He probably does not know that Nicki dissed EVERY judge on Idol since its inception!

After The View segment aired, Nicki took to Twitter to threaten Barbara!

How do YOU feel, HollywoodLifers? Whose side are you on?
