Has Nicki Minaj Pushed Mariah Carey To Her Breaking Point? Singer Reportedly Threatening To Leave ‘American Idol’
Within the past two weeks, we’ve heard more about tension brewing between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj than we’ve heard about the actual contestants. Just last week Nicki served Mariah with a few low blows via Twitter, calling the 43-year-old mother of two “insecure” and “bitter.” 30-year-old Nicki then proceeded to kick dirt in her co-star’s face by referencing swirling rumors that Jennifer Lopez was being courted by Fox to replace MiMi on the show.
The beef between the ladies seems very catty and unnecessary, but industry insiders say Mariah has had enough and doesn’t even want to finish the current season. According to Perez Hilton, the inside source is saying that Mariah would rather cut her losses and keep it moving than deal with Nicki’s antagonistic ways.
“Mariah doesn’t want to come back, Nicki is really disrespecting her and she’s tired of trying to bite her tongue all the time… One night Nicki tried to be kind of nice, but Mariah didn’t bite, so I guess she figured screw that,” the source said.
The source went on to say that Mariah is tired of dealing with American Idol producer as well.
“She’s done with it all. She doesn’t need the platform, and all the drama isn’t healthy for her… She’s also under fire with the producers for not being critical enough of the contestants.”
Of course these are all speculations, as Mariah’s departure has yet to be confirmed by her camp or Fox producers. Only time will tell.
Would you be sad to see Mariah leave American Idol?
