Just two days into filming the upcoming season of American Idol
, Mariah Carey
laughed off reports of a feud with fellow new judge Nicki Minaj, who also said that everything was "wonderful, darling."
What a difference two weeks makes!
In a video posted on TMZ.com
, Minaj is seen and heard yelling at Carey, who seems to be talking back – but in a quieter voice. Though it's hard to tell what they are saying in the fuzzy footage from the Charlotte, N.C., set, one thing is for sure – Minaj has been repeatedly bleeped out.
According to TMZ, Minaj says, "Don't lose your head. Don't lose your head ... Don't tell me I'm a gangster," and, "I'm not f–––in' putting up with her f–––ing highness over there. Figure it the f––– out."
The site also reports that producers ended auditions for the day to let the on-set drama cool down. Could this feud be for real? Or for publicity?
Neither judge has said anything about the video on Twitter, though host Ryan Seacrest Tweeted Tuesday
, "Going to bed in Charlotte after an anything but dull day at #idol auditions."
Fox has no comment.
