Mariah Carey revealed to Barbara Walters on the Oct. 4 episode of The View that her fight with Nicki Minaj on the set of American Idol on Oct. 2 ended with Nicki walking off set, saying, “If I had a gun, I would shoot the b***h.” Mariah is worried for her safety now and she’s increasing her security!

A source close to Mariah tells exclusively, “Mariah is not taking Nicki’s threats lightly at all and she’s making us do extra – like extra s*** to protect her and make her more comfortable.”

Our source adds that Mariah is speaking with media outlets as a means of protecting herself. “I haven’t ever seen Mariah this crazy before about going to work. I know she’s talking to the media because she wants everyone to know what Nicki said and how she threatened her in case something actually goes down with this.”

“We’re being cautious at every turn and keeping four eyes open and closing only one when we’re sleep,” our source says. “When you have a gutter trash that’s mad at you because you’re talented and all loved all over the world and they want to take you down, you dont know what they’re capable of.”
