We all thought this beef was new, but reports say Nicki Minaj had been seriously disrespectful to Mariah Carey 2 years ago. Her explosion on the set of “American Idol” this week wasn’t the first time she had been angry with Mariah.
Nicki and Mariah teamed up in 2010 for a music video, “Up Out My Face.” Nicki wasn’t this known then and Mariah, as sources say felt like she was helping launch Nicki’s career.
According to B. Scott who appeared in the video said Nicki was a b*tch.
“Mariah went out of her way to be nice to Nicki and make her comfortable.” But Scott says Nicki was a raving b*tch, “making faces at her [Mariah] laced with rude comments under her breath.”
Scott says he blew the whistle on Nicki by giving Mariah the low down. Scott says Mariah decided not to confront Nicki and acted as if nothing had happened.
Responding to B. Scott’s comment, sources close to Nicki says Scott lied.
“He works as Mariah’s stunt double and of course he would say things like that. He’s worked for her for years.”
Scott says he spoke with Mariah on Thursday night and she says she wants to bury the hatchet with Nicki on “American Idol” and focus on the contestants.
Good luck with that, Mariah.
Some ardent follower of TV thinks the whole feud may well be an act set up by the producers to earn American Idol the ‘hit’ status. What do you think?
