Nicki Minaj Blows Up at Mariah Carey During 'American Idol' Auditions
Pink-haired singer goes on curse-laden tirade in North Carolina

Just two weeks after they downplayed rumors of a feud, Nicki Minaj aimed a torrent of curse words at Mariah Carey yesterday during American Idol auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, TMZ reports. "I told them, I'm not fucking putting up with her fucking highness over there," Minaj shouts at one point. Carey is talking back at Minaj in grainy video obtained by TMZ, but her responses aren't clear.

The flare-up apparently began over a disagreement about a contestant's performance, which spiraled into a shouting match that prompted Idol producers to cut short auditions for the day so the judges could calm down. 

Minaj, Carey and Keith Urban join original cast member Randy Jackson as judges for the 12th season of American Idol, which begins in January.
